Women at work

Alliance Boots is committed to being an equal opportunities employer.  A range of initiatives and activities, which include flexible working hours, ensure that women have the same career opportunities as men, which is particularly important for women who wish to combine bringing up a family and a career.  These activities ensure that the women we have recruited and trained can be retrained in the business and their skills and knowledge used to positive effect.  

Today, across the Group, women are well represented in the workplace.  The particularly high figures for female employees in our Health & Beauty Division are not surprising given the nature of our businesses and its customer base.  In general, many hold positions in the senior management teams throughout the Group.
