D&I: Together we are NEXT

At Next, we encourage our people to help us to drive positive change, share ideas and champion their passions. As a diverse community we are working on ways to expand more networks across the business to ensure everyone feels included, comfortable and themselves at work.  

We are committed to being an employer of choice for everyone. We are dedicated to attracting, retaining and developing the very best people to build a diverse and talented team and recognise that every individual’s unique background, experience and ability collaborates and contributes to our future success.

We strive to create an inclusive and inspiring environment where individual’s feel valued and respected and where people can thrive, achieve their full potential and be their very best, whoever they are.

Wellbeing at NEXT

We want all our employees to feel able to be creative, productive and engaged. Next is an inspiring, exciting and rewarding place to work and by helping our employees to maintain positive mental wellbeing, we know they will also help us to be successful.

In 2018 we launched a new Mental Wellbeing Charter aimed to improve the way we identify and help those suffering from mental ill-health. In 2017 we partnered with experts in the field to help us develop and launch the Charter which was endorsed at board level. 

When we talk about mental wellbeing we mean ‘where you are able to achieve your potential, cope with normal day to day pressures, thrive and be productive in all aspects of your life’.
