Diversity & inclusion

One big family

At wilko, we see ourselves as one big family – and as such, it’s vital that we welcome everyone for who they really are. We’re not about just accepting people’s differences, we’re about wanting them and celebrating them.

We’re passionate about having an inclusive workplace that promotes and values diversity. We want to attract and retain talent from a diverse range of backgrounds, helping team members to be free to be at their best and free to belong. We want a workplace that reflects the communities we serve, and to be truly successful it’s vital that we welcome and celebrate everyone for who they really are. We never exclude or discriminate against anyone based on their race, gender, religion, age, beliefs, disability, sexual orientation or socio-economic background.

Everyone belongs at wilko.

Celebrating Our Differences
Celebrating Our Differences

We value, respect and support all of our team members and customers.

That’s why we focus on the needs of every individual and make sure the right conditions are in place for everyone to be the best they can be. That means:

  • The right working environment for all our team members
  • An in-store and online experience that’s welcoming and inclusive of all
  • The types of products we sell must be relevant to all

We’re working hard to make sure our brand reflects all the customers we serve. We’re working hard to be more inclusive and totally free from prejudice. And we’re working hard to get rid of all discrimination, inequality and unfairness, to create an inclusive culture where everyone feels they belong.

Free to be at my best We will continue to work hard every day to provide an inclusive place to work and shop. One that promotes, values and celebrates diversity. One where everyone is free to be at their best and free to belong.
Free to be at my best
We’ll keep going until we’ve created a culture that’s totally diverse and inclusive. We mustn’t be afraid to talk to each other and learn from each other, and not be scared to try. We may not always get it right, but we’re working hard to be better at it every day.
