The project was distinguished in the category of "Retail and Wholesale Engagement" for its work and commitment in the recovery of a millenary trade through the direct training of students and the real work projection of the students participating in the initiative.
From the commitment to the sustainability of jewelry and with the commitment to add value to society, in 2018 we launched this initiative with the aim of promoting the professional training of future generations. In this way, in addition to the training framework, we want to offer real work projection to the participants, something that we have already achieved in the first edition: more than 15% of the students have obtained employment directly, in the TOUS Workshops or indirectly, in workshops external to the brand.
Among the winners of the past editions of these awards, are Carlsberg, Royal Mail or Virgin Money. In addition, the organization of the awards annually publishes the CSR World Leaders, its own publication that gathers the winners of the awards and positions them as an example of excellence and best practice in CSR.
