International Men’s Day

To celebrate International Men’s Day, Superdrug offered male grooming experiences in their head office concierge and café spaces, with the help of L’Oréal, Gillette and Phillips. Male colleagues were treated to free shaving services, along with a chance to win prizes by taking part in other fun activities, such as darts and foosball competitions.

They also celebrated with male colleagues all across Superdrug by posting a series of interviews and blog posts on the internal communication platform, where they shared their experiences with mental health, their journey with Superdrug and more.
