We always dress from the feet up here and last night was the perfect opportunity for some members of team schuh to go all out for glamour at the Retail Week Awards 2017 ceremony in London’s Grosvenor House.
Well, it’s a good job those repping us at the event were looking so dapper. They were delighted to be making their way up on stage to collect none other than, wait for it… Retail Week’s Employer of the Year. I mean what can we say, when you’re good, you’re good I guess. Someone’s doing very well for themselves, that’s right we are and we couldn’t be more buzzing about it.
We beat off stiff competition to win this award for our ‘Putting the You in Schuh’ initiative. The long and short of it is that tons of hard work has gone in to making us all happy and engaged at work so we continue to give the dyno experience we do .
We don’t want to turn this not so #humblebrag in to an Oscars style teary acceptance speech thanking everyone’s parents, dog walkers and local pizza delivery driver for believing in us etc, etc, etc. But, we can’t hide our excitement, especially when the judges said some great things. Thanks guys!
The most important thing is that the initiative was (and remains) effective meaning all of us love helping you look great. However, we’re thrilled that the hard work that has gone in to this has been recognised elsewhere too.
As the award suggests, we’re a happy bunch already but we’re cheesing even more than usual right now. So, cheers to…us.
