M&S launches digital alumni network

Marks and Spencer (M&S) is launching a digital alumni network to connect its global community of former colleagues.

The network, named M&S family is the retailer’s first official alumni network, and has been created with the aim of building a community and helping each and M&S transform for the future.

Through the digital network the retailer says it wants to enable everyone who has worked for M&S to stay part of the “family” and have the chance to continue their contribution to the business.

Katie Bickerstaffe, chief strategy & transformation director and sponsor of the M&S Family Alumni Network said:“It’s our people - past and present - that make M&S special. When you work here, you join a big, diverse family and become part of a business and brand that’s stood the test of time. That connection never leaves you, even when you move on.

She added: “We have a huge community of former colleagues who remain our most passionate advocates and constructive critics. But to date, we’ve barely scratched the surface when it comes to tapping into the enthusiasm and opportunity our fantastic extended M&S family can provide – be that supporting our recruitment pipeline, mentoring, backing our community initiatives or providing candid feedback on our products and services.”

Working with software provider Enterprise Alumni the M&S Family platform enables former colleagues to connect with each other and M&S.

Alumni members will be kept to date with the latest M&S news, have access to live job opportunities, and find out how they can get involved with M&S initiatives.
