Iceland is a unique British food retailer with over 960 stores throughout the UK. They seek to build a growing, profitable and responsible business that does the right thing for colleagues and customers, the communities that they serve, the planet and future generation. The Iceland story was started by Sir Malcolm Walker, who began selling loose frozen food in Oswestry in the early 1970's. Fifty years later, Iceland are an iconic brand with stores on almost every high street. They employ over 25,000 people and have won multiple awards for customer service, food quality and online shopping. Iceland care about their people. They are committed to delivering a positive working environment that protects and looks after their colleagues' physical and mental wellbeing. 'Your Wellbeing' is their awareness campaign, reminding colleagues about all the support available at Iceland. Every colleague receives a pocket-size booklet which signposts them to the support or information they need, which is also available 24/7 on their intranet. Iceland recognise their colleagues for making a positive difference, no matter how small it may seem. Colleagues can nominate each other to receive a 'Doing it Right' card, an official thank you from the business, signed by the colleagues' senior managers along with a high street voucher. For truly outstanding performances, colleagues can be nominated for a 'First Class Service Award', which is presented to one colleague per region every month.
