Wherever we work, our values come alive and underpin our mission to make Alliance Boots the world’s leading pharmacy-led health and beauty group. We are responsible for bringing these values to life for our customers and partners, every day, wherever we operate.
Alliance Boots is dedicated to helping people feel and look their best and has a strong heritage in providing available, accessible and affordable healthcare services and products to patients and customers. For over 160 years Boots in the UK has championed the right of everybody to access affordable medicines thereby improving their general health and wellbeing and in doing so helping to avoid the debilitating effect of disease and poverty.
Today the real challenge is about keeping people healthier for longer. Whether addressing the causes, symptoms and impact of chronic illness that blight so many lives (such as supporting people to quit smoking or to manage their diet and weight), or helping people to cope with the stresses of modern living, Alliance Boots is committed to helping its customers and patients.
In terms of our Health & Beauty business activities, our corporate social responsibility process is focused on ensuring that what we stand for is reflected in the customer service we provide, the way that we source and transport products, the type of products we have, and how we sell them.
We recognise the special status of Boots as the UK’s most trusted pharmacy brand and continue to enhance our position as a leading provider of healthcare, beauty advice and services in local communities.
In addition, we are building sales of No7 in the United States, which won a number of awards in the US edition of Good Housekeeping magazine.
During 2010/11 we have received numerous awards including:
- Retail Week Technology Awards – The BT Technology Solution of the year
