Today is #WorldPharmacistsDay and at Boots, our pharmacists are at the heart of the local communities we serve. So we want to say thank you to every one of you for the amazing work you do everyday, making a difference to the lives of your colleagues, customers and patients!
Each year we celebrate the amazing work our colleagues do at our Best of the Best Awards. Earlier this month, we held our 2019 event in Coventry and it was a fantastic night recognising the achievements of teams and individuals. Well done to all those nominated and congratulations to everyone who won an award, including our team from Wadebridge store in Cornwall on being named Store of the Year 2019!
"This journey has just been incredible. I can't put into words how thankful I am to those at Boots who have provided me with the endless opportunities and supported me throughout the years... I have absolutely loved my Pre-reg and I'm sad to be leaving, but at the same time I can't wait for day one as a Pharmacist, working in my first ever store, 6447, where I met my husband-to-be and a lovely Line Manager who hired me at a time when I had absolutely no idea what I wanted to do with my future career...
Needless to say this all holds a very special place in my heart and I'm truly thankful for all the support and guidance that got me here today. I'm so excited to start this new chapter, wear my new badge tomorrow and see where this takes me."
Thank you Anoushka, we can't wait to see what the future holds for you.
This weekend we attended Nottinghamshire Pride and were extremely proud to be the headline sponsor for this fantastic event for the first time in our home city where Jesse Boot opened his first store 170 years ago.
The day was a celebration of colleagues and customers and allowed us to showcase the 'Best of Boots' through our Health, Beauty and Careers stalls where we had lots of great conversations, gave away product samples and provided Pride inspired makeovers.
Thank you to all of our colleagues who came along to represent Boots, take part in the Pride march and show how at Boots, we champion you being you.

Earlier this month we held our annual two-day Let's Practice conference for 350 of our pre-registration pharmacy students to set them up for success as newly qualified pharmacists.
It's a great event for our pre-reg students to network, celebrate their achievements and prepare for their next steps. During the conference, we also share business updates, career opportunities and news from the pharmacy sector plus there is a special gala dinner in the evening.
On Thursday 4 July, we held our first ever ‘Women In Leadership’ conference. Hosted by Tracey Clements, Chief Operating Officer and Una Kent, Director of Communications, CSR and Archives, over 100 colleagues attended the session to learn more about creating a diverse and inclusive culture, and why it’s so important to our business.
The day included a fascinating look back through our history and how Florence Boot became one of the first female directors in the UK back in 1917, as well as being an advocate for staff health and wellbeing initiatives.
Other highlights of the day included an insightful panel discussion with some of our female leaders who talked about their career journeys and talks by three external speakers who discussed the latest research on culture, understanding brain gender difference, and the effects of menopause in the workplace.

Today marks the 170th day of our 170th year of Boots and to celebrate this milestone an incredible group of 30 colleagues are taking part in a mammoth 170 mile cycle starting from our flagship store at Sedley Place, London and ending at our Nottingham Support Office, all in one day!
The team are fundraising in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and so far they have raised an amazing total of over £20,000! We're wishing them all the best of luck on their ride today. #Boots170
Yesterday was #WorldEnvironmentDay and colleagues at our Nottingham Support Office have been learning more about our business initiatives and our environmental achievements so far, including removing all plastic cutlery from our catering facilities across our Support Office!
We've been finding out more about the ways we can all get involved to make a positive impact on the environment, such as, understanding more about the impact of our diet and signing up to litter picks.
In our stores, more than 1,700 fridge doors have been installed, reducing the energy used by over 40%, and more recently, 16 tonnes of plastic has been removed by switching from round fruit pots to square.
