Looking After Our People

Looking after our staff

Greggs cares about being a great place to work and looking after all members of our ‘Greggs family.' Our goal is to make sure every individual feels valued, looked after and well rewarded for their contribution.

We began as a family business. Today we still work together and grow together just like a real family. With around 20,000 people working at Greggs, we want everyone to enjoy the work they do and feel proud to be part of the Greggs family.

The health and wellbeing of our people is of paramount importance to us. We have robust Health & Safety controls in place, designed to protect our people at work.

We want our people to feel rewarded, valued and engaged in the business. We want all members of our Greggs family to share in our success when our business is doing well, that is why every individual working at Greggs is eligible for profit share, paid twice a year.

We also offer SAYE (Save as You Earn) schemes, an annual Employee Opinion Survey where we encourage our people to tell us what it's really like working for Greggs and how we can improve, plus we have a wide range of family friendly policies which recognise family rights and help our people achieve a sensible work-life balance. We promote equal opportunities and encourage diversity and inclusion via policies that ensure we do not discriminate on the grounds of age, gender, ethnic origin, religion or disability.

We want to train and develop our people to ensure they are successful in their roles and can progress within the company. We offer a wide range of training and skills courses and are very proud that a high number of new appointments are internal promotions.
