Watson is very proud of the accomplishments and growth of these employees and our entire team at Watson. “Several years ago,” stated Moira Watson, Vice President of Marketing and Communication, “our family sat down and wrote up a set of family values which we shared with all the employees. One of these values was to be Supportive. We defined it as helping to nurture the people around you, to help each other to be special individuals and celebrate our differences, to help others reach their goals of self-fulfillment, while accepting help to reach your own goals. We have strong employee development programs at Watson and we take employee engagement and happiness seriously.”
