The company founded itself on the principle of avoiding synthetic preservatives and to make cosmetics as natural as possible. The company has grown from a small business to a global enterprise with 926 shops in 51 countries around the world. In 2015, Lush Cosmetics has been recognised as an Employer of Choice in The Australian Business Awards.

Much of the business is greatly influenced by the opinions of staff, ranging from shop staff to members of all the other different areas throughout the company. Three of the most recent LUSH campaigns regarding shark culling, marriage equality and listing the Great Barrier Reef as in danger, were all suggested by staff from LUSH stores. All staff are receive a 50% discount off every product offered in LUSH stores. Every 6 months staff are given a STAY interview – where discussions are had about their position and options for progression are considered. Bonuses are also offered across every level of staff for reaching and exceeding targets. Employees are offered a range of education and training options, with LUSH even offering unsuccessful job applicants the opportunity to intern and develop job related skills.
