IWC EMPLOYEES TO OFFER ONLINE TUTORING FOR SCHOOLCHILDREN
Schaffhausen, 15th April 2020 – As part of its recently announced “TIME WELL SHARED” initiative, IWC Schaffhausen will promote a personal volunteering program for its employees. In their own free time, and on an individual and voluntary basis, employees are encouraged to offer online tutoring support for schoolchildren in basic subjects, such as mathematics or foreign languages. The goal is to support young people and their parents who are studying at home due to the current situation. The free online tuition will be facilitated by Good Tutors Finder, an international Tutoring Services company.
As part of its commitment to improve society, IWC has been promoting the well-being of young people for many years. With schools in many countries currently closed, countless schoolchildren are studying at home and need support. For this reason, IWC has launched a personal volunteering program within the framework of its “TIME WELL SHARED” initiative.
“As a mother, I know how challenging the current situation can be. Therefore, we want to encourage our employees to offer online tutoring support in their own free time. With this personal, voluntary commitment, we want to reinforce our promise to contribute to society, and help to ensure that no child is left behind and the burden on parents is reduced,”
“Good Tutors Finder is committed to enable all children to develop their full potential. In addition to our paid home learning and tutoring services, we are delighted to partner with IWC to offer free tuition to children that otherwise might not be able to learn in the current environment,” says Chris Anicet, COO of Good Tutors Finder.
GOOD TUTORS FINDER COMPILES THE OFFERS
IWC staff who would like to provide online tutoring can register their interest in a dedicated section of the Good Tutors Finder website. Students or their parents can search for tutoring sessions at http://goodtutorsfinder.ch/iwc-time-well-shared and register online.

In 1868, the American watchmaker and entrepreneur Florentine Ariosto Jones travelled from Boston to Switzerland and founded the ‘International Watch Company’ in Schaffhausen. His visionary dream was to combine advanced American manufacturing methods with the craftsmanship of Swiss watchmakers to make the best pocket watches of his time. In doing so, he not only laid the foundation for IWC’s unique engineering approach but also established the centralised production of mechanical watches in Switzerland.
Over its 150 year history, IWC Schaffhausen has developed a reputation for creating functional complications, especially chronographs and calendars, which are ingenious, robust, and easy for customers to use. A pioneer in the use of titanium and ceramics, IWC today specialises in highly engineered technical watch cases manufactured from advanced materials, such as titaniumaluminide and Ceratanium®. Preferring the principle of “form follows function” over decoration, the Swiss watch manufacturer’s timeless creations embody their owners’ dreams and ambitions as they journey through life.
IWC sources materials responsibly and takes action to minimise its impact on the environment, creating intrinsically sustainable timepieces that are built to last for generations. The company prides itself in training its own future watchmakers and engineers, as well as offering an excellent working environment for all employees. IWC also partners with organisations that work globally to support children and young people.
