Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility

At The Watches of Switzerland Group, we see Corporate Social Responsibility as a key element of how we conduct our business and believe it makes great business sense. We believe that giving back to the community demonstrates our commitment to both customers and colleagues, helps us form stronger relationships with our suppliers and helps us recruit and retain the best people.

The Watches of Switzerland Group’s Vision is to be the best watch and jewelry retailer; but our Values and our culture makes us so much more than just a leading retailer.

Our continued success requires a real commitment to doing business responsibly. For us, our commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is not only driven by good economics, but also by our sense of “doing the right thing”.
We aim to meet our responsibilities by:

  • Employing and retaining great people
  • Engaging our people, our partners and our customers to promote sustainable living
  • Dealing fairly with our suppliers and selling responsibly sourced, quality products
  • Making a positive difference to our local communities

Doing the Right Thing for our Environment

The Watches of Switzerland Group is committed to being an environmentally conscious and responsible retailer. We recognize that we have a duty to identify and minimise the impact that we have on the environment and over recent years we have introduced a number of environmental initiatives into our business.

We comply with the relevant international laws and industry regulations when sourcing our products and insist on written guarantees from suppliers that our products conform to international regulations and we are an active member of the Responsible Jewelry Council.

Doing the Right Thing for the Community

Our colleagues and teams have an established track record of playing an active, positive role in local communities, where we give time and expertise to a range of organisations. Through various activities, we actively support His House, a Children’s Home in Miami-Dade County, Florida dedicated to restoring the lives of children from newborn to 18 years of age by providing residential and foster care services.

Doing the Right Thing for Charity

The Watches of Switzerland Group actively supports a number of charities and encourages support and giving in a number of ways. In the UK, our retail brands work alongside charities such as The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity and The Princes Trust and our Head Office charity & community team meet monthly to support our chosen charities.
