Throughout the COVID crisis, Kingfisher has taken swift and effective measures to support our clear commitments – to serve our customers as a retailer of essential goods, to look after our colleagues as a responsible employer, to provide support to the communities in which we operate, and to protect our business for the long term. These commitments are ultimately about ‘doing the right thing’ – one of the key cultural characteristics of our ‘Powered by Kingfisher’ strategy.
Social distancing and safety measures
All our Kingfisher stores continue to operate under strict social distancing and safety measures to protect customers and colleagues. Similar measures are also in place at our distribution and fulfilment centres, and our corporate offices. In addition, we have provided support for safe home working where relevant, including risk assessments and the provision of office equipment. In most cases, the measures applied have gone beyond government recommendations in each market, which has been met with strong approval by both customers and colleagues.
