The world’s largest international health and beauty retailer brings
Asia’s No. 1 brand Watsons to the Middle East consumers
Al-Futtaim, one of the most diversified and progressive, privately held regional businesses and A.S. Watson Group, the world’s largest international health and beauty retailer, jointly announced today that they have reached an exclusive franchise agreement to launch the flagship health and beauty brand Watsons in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC).
In order to celebrate Children’s Day with staff and their children, Watsons China did something creative this year with a live broadcast in store with Watsons’ Children KOL, encouraging them to interact with viewers and experience the hottest way to social media marketing now. In addition to sharing new and popular products with the audience, the webcast also allowed the children to experience something new and fresh.
In an effort to boost employees’ sense of belonging and make them feel Watsons’ care for them and their families, every warehouse staff of Watsons China was provided with children’s face masks before Children’s Day to help protect their health and wellbeing. Children who received the masks also started in a series of fashionable “cute face warrior” photos on the day of the festival and warmed many hearts!
With an aim to raise fund for orphaned children and help protect the environment, Watsons Russia collected plastic bottle caps at the office and collaborated with local eco charity Kidness Cap. The organisation collects and recycles plastic caps from different collection points in Saint Petersburg. The proceeds are donated to an orphanage in the city.
Watsons Thailand’s People Team visited store staff on 21 May, the first day the stores re-opened since the lockdown in March. They visited the store team members bearing small gifts to reassure and show them that they are loved and supported and that everyone at Watsons Thailand will always be here for them.
Watsons Water Plant is Converted for Mask Production Automated Production in Dust-Free Clean Room
In response to the unstable global supply of hygienic face masks, A.S. Watson Group announced today its experienced distilled water and beverage manufacturing business, A.S. Watson Industries, has transformed part of its factory into dust-free clean room for producing own brand face masks in Hong Kong. The first batch of masks will be available at Watsons Hong Kong online and physical stores from mid-May.
During the Covid-19 epidemic, many are doing their part, complying with isolation guidelines to keep the public safe despite suffering quietly from the stress brought about by quarantine. Watsons Taiwan staff cheered them on by organising a thank-you activity amongst the retail store employees. They were encouraged to use photos or videos to show their appreciation and gratitude towards anyone of their choosing. The interaction helps bring a little joy to citizens in quarantine and help them stay connected despite the physical distance.
