Self-confident, innovative and ambitious. To dream together at Colruyt Group means having the courage to think further and to think ahead. As a family of companies, we provide a work environment where you can realise your long-term plans.
Concrete examples? In 1965 we already put computers at the checkout. Twenty years later, we were the first to switch to full scanning. And Collect&Go was the first ever pick-up service in Belgium and far beyond.
Today we are a trendsetter in the field of sustainability. For example, our forklift trucks run on hydrogen and we invest heavily in low energy shops. We recently opened the first OKay shop that does not use fossil fuels. However, digital innovation is also important to us. With the Xtra card, we are the first retailer to offer one customer card for our various retail formulas. And did you know that you can pay using your mobile in all our shops?
Dieter, Team leader Project & Reliability Engineers
Colruyt Group is a trendsetter in Belgium in terms of innovation in the machine world. We constantly analyse our own processes and installations. By doing so, we remain the best.
Choose your own way
Whether you are a veteran employee or a starter, we are committed to internal mobility. Every year, around 1,000 employees within our family change jobs. How and why do we do this?
So many activities, so many different jobs. It’s logical that you want to try something different during your career. And we only encourage that, because we think change keeps us sharp. This is why we help you right from the start to find your own way.
Lynn, Junior Concept Artist
I started a year and a half ago as a temp employee in the purchasing department. I quickly found a permanent job in keeping with my interests. Thanks to my supervisor’s faith and the countless opportunities I was given, I've truly found my place.
Sustainable working = better working
We are very aware of our impact on people, the environment and society. We approach this in concrete terms. For example, we generate green energy ourselves, we do not sell overfished fish and we are committed to making the neighbourhoods around our shops litter free.
Allow the world inside
Together with colleges, universities and research centres, we develop new technologies and business models. Young talent keeps us sharp. But we also encourage student workers to join us.
