"I am passionate that here at Superdrug we are welcoming to all. Everyone Matters, our Inclusion and Diversity strategy, helps make our workplaces inclusive for everyone working with us now, and in the future. It’s also about our customers, as the more we learn and understand, the better we can serve our diverse customer base. I am incredibly proud of Everyone Matters, our employee networks, and everyone that strives to make our workplaces more inclusive. In fact, it is so important it is now a key part of our business strategy. I hope you are as delighted as I am of what and what more there is to come".-Peter Macnab- CEO Health & Beauty UK.
As a key part of our business, Everyone Matters has 6 focuses: Age, Social Mobility, (Access All Areas), Disability, Gender Equality, LGBTQ+, and Race & Ethnicity (Harmony). We have Employee Networks to create safe spaces for communities and members to discuss issues, share experiences, and provide support, and an Everyone Matters Steering Group. This includes Peter Macnab (UK H&B CEO), our Network Leads and Exec Sponsors. We want our employees have a voice, shape our culture, and support us on our journey to creating a truly inclusive workplace where you can be you.
