A responsible approach to business
As a family business focused on long-term growth, Alshaya is aware of the need to operate responsibly and sustainably. There's lots of ways we contribute:
- A commitment to our people. We run a range of programmes designed to develop, empower, reward and recognise our people, and to ensure they enjoy a good work life balance. The Alshaya Leadership Programme. Great benefits. Flexible working. An active Sport & Social Club. That’s just some of the things we do to ensure a vibrant and healthy culture at Alshaya.
- A commitment to our customers. Wherever our customers want to connect with us we're focused on delivering a great experience - in-store, online or a mixture of both. That means making sure an authentic brand offer is backed up by consistently high operations, whether that's defining clear service standards, adhering to global food safety standards, protecting customer rights, or making it easy for our customers to talk to us.
- A commitment to where we live. As a leading employer in the retail sector, there are many ways we can make a sustainable difference to the communities in which we operate. Jobs creation and skills development. Local sourcing. Charitable support. Partnership with government and local NGOs. And of course, doing what we can to help the environment. Across our brands and functions we have many exciting initiatives underway – for example using solar energy to power buildings, recycling fashion and old electronics and of course, reducing packaging. There are lots of ways for us to make a difference and we are working continuously to make them happen.
Developing our youth
Every year, we give hundreds of Kuwaiti students a taste of the world of retail through the Alshaya's summer internship programme.
