We were delighted to celebrate the 2019 WHSmith High Street ‘Smithies’ Awards this week. Our brilliant shortlist from across our High Street Head Office were nominated and voted for by their colleagues, and on Monday we celebrated our 11 deserving winners across categories which included Contribution to the Community, Entrepreneurial Spirit and the Above and Beyond Award. A huge thank you to all the teams and individuals who were nominated for their exceptional work and congratulations to all our winners!
Ensuring our employees are supported in balancing their family life and their career is important and one of the reasons WHSmith advocate flexible working. workingmums.co.uk & workingdads.co.uk have shared an interview with Ian and Jane Spencer, who both work in senior roles at WHSmith, about their experience of how their working hours have flexed and changed as their children have grown. #flexibleworking
We are proud to announce that today we have opened a brand-new WHSmith, M&S Simply Food and Costa Coffee in Colchester Hospital.
We have worked closely with East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust, as well as our franchise partners M&S and Costa Coffee, to deliver the new stores and would like to thank all involved for their hard work!
We look forward to welcoming patients, staff and visitors at Colchester Hospital into our stores to enjoy the fantastic new convenience offer.
