SECURING A MORE SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
With our highly engaged colleagues, brand partners, scale and expertise, we are uniquely positioned to wow our clients, while caring for our colleagues and communities and protect our planet: this is our Purpose.
People & Culture
With over 2,500 colleagues across the UK and US, our people are high achieving, self starters who are extremely proud to be part of the Watches of Switzerland Group. We focus on recruiting outstanding talent from a diverse pool, building skills and knowledge through learning and development programmes, driving engagement and potential for promotion throughout the business.
Supporting our local communities has always been an important part of the Watches of Switzerland Group’s culture and our approach to giving continues to be focused on charities with whom we can develop longstanding personal relationships and work together to create change. In some cases, this means partnering with established national or international charities to fund specific projects or outcomes and in others it means supporting much smaller charities such as food banks with both funding, expertise, and the opportunity to benefit from the wider network we have created. The Watches of Switzerland Group Foundation was incorporated as a company in October 2020 and was registered as a charity by the UK Charity Commission in November 2021. The initial planned Company donation of £3.0 million across FY21 and FY22 was further enhanced by an additional donation of £1.5 million making a total cash contribution to the Foundation of £4.5 million in FY22.
Caring for our planet is enshrined in our Company Purpose and is a key consideration in all our decision-making processes.
We take our responsibilities to society extremely seriously and have strict policies and procedures in place to make sure everyone we do business with shares our commitment to upholding human rights and protecting our planet for future generations.
