…And change your own
Auchan Retail wants to change its customers’ lives through the engagement of its employees, whose lives it also wishes to change. We believe that a business with engaged employees will have a satisfied customer base. In roles spanning from the furthest end of the supply chain to the very heart of the stores, our employees are spirited ambassadors for good, healthy and local products. They are leading the way in multiformat shopping, developing innovations in phygital retailing, playing a major role in looking after the planet, and are the driving force behind the Auchan Retail foundations.
To change our customers’ lives, we must first improve the lives of our employees. That is the purpose of our human project: taking care of employees at each stage in their career at the company, giving each employee the means to feel good about themselves, to realise their goals and to work in a worthwhile business.
