Boots were awarded two special acolades at the Recruiter Awards held in London recently - Best Graduate Recruitment Strategy and Innovation in Recruitment.
The Best Graduate Recruitment Strategy Award was given in recognition of our Pharmacy Graduate Programme. The judges were impressed with the scale of the graduate programme and the success rate in the competitive market of resourcing pharmacists.
The Innovation in Recruitment award was given to Boots to recognise the innovation revolving around the new online assessment tool for store colleague roles.
Boots has unveiled a new look and feel for its pharmacies to help support a new condition-led pharmacy approach.
The current look and feel of the pharmacy area across the entire store portfolio and online is to be upgraded. New designs and iconography are being introduced to make it easier for customers to find and access healthcare and pharmacy services. The new easy to understand icons and language will give a brighter, sharper and more dynamic way of communicating healthcare and pharmacy products and services.

Britain’s Next Big Thing - BBC 2, Tuesday 8.00pm
Britain’s Next Big Thing follows small businesses and entrepreneurs on their journey for their products to be stocked by a major retailer including Boots.
Hosted by Theo Paphitis from BBC’s Dragons Den, it starts on Tuesday 12 April at 8.00pm with 7 one-hour episodes shown over a 7-week period. Boots will feature at length in most of the shows, along with Liberty and Habitat who will also be following their own journey from prototype to the shop floor.
We’re delighted to be consistently ranked amongst the best companies to work for, according to the latest results of two prestigious national surveys.
Boots Opticians scooped the coveted first place on The Sunday Times Best 25 Big Companies to Work For list. As well as being the UK’s very best big company to work for, we also won a special award for ‘Innovation in Engagement’ in recognition of the work the Boots Opticians Forum does to encourage open communication across the business. Boots Opticians was awarded a Best Companies Three-Star Status, which makes us an ‘extraordinary’ company to work for!
This year, Boots UK earned a brilliant 19th place in The Sunday Times list and a prestigious One-Star Status – it’s the second year running that we’ve been considered a ‘first class’ organisation to work for.
In Ireland, we’ve been leading the way for even longer. For the last three years running we've been ranked one of the Best Workplaces in Ireland, as featured in the Irish Independent.
Perhaps the best thing about these awards is that they’re based on feedback from our own people. Teams across the business reported that they relish the great team spirit and feeling of reward, recognition and appreciation.
