Martins Group reaches 100 thousand employee milestone

Lisbon, 2017-Jul-21 — /EPR Retail News/ — In the year in which it is celebrating a history of 225 years, the Jerónimo Martins Group has reached the 100 thousand employee milestone. Biedronka, the leading supermarket chain in Poland, is responsible for over two thirds of the Group’s total universe of employees.

Over the last few decades, the strong commitment to growth and to the sustained development of the business have transformed a medium-sized Portuguese company into one of the biggest food retail groups in Europe, with operations in Portugal and in Poland, as well as in Colombia.

The Group’s current dimension is the result of the engagement and results-orientation of several generations of employees, making it possible to go from 300 to 100 thousand employees in five decades (from 1968 to 2017).

Pedro Soares dos Santos, the Group’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, states that “it is with satisfaction and further responsibility that I am recording this milestone in the Group’s history.” He also adds that “the capacity to continue attracting and retaining the best professionals in the widest variety of areas and to the different levels of the organisation is essential for us to successfully achieve our set objectives.”

At the time of reaching 100 thousand employees we have also attained 100 thousand followers on LinkedIn, the largest professional social network in the world. The Group’s official page was created in 2013 and has been gradually gaining followers to become one of the biggest corporate pages in Portugal.

Besides sharing career opportunities in the three countries in which the Group is present, followers of this page can also find content about Jerónimo Martins’ activity, its talent programmes and corporate responsibility initiatives.
