Diversity is brought to life at HUGO BOSS as a Company with international operations and an international culture. For the Group, this means recognizing the diversity of society and safeguarding equal opportunities for all its employees – irrespective of nationality, gender, religion, political views, sexual orientation, age or any disability. Diversity enriches the corporate culture and is thus a clear success factor in international competition. The Group has further underlined the importance it places on diversity by becoming a signatory to the “Charter of Diversity”.
Since seven years HUGO BOSS has been a member of the Germany-wide network “Erfolgsfaktor Familie” (“Success Factor Family”) and offers its employees a flexible family support model. The key objective is to ensure an easy return to the workplace following maternity or parental leave. Employees at the Group’s headquarters in Metzingen have places reserved at two different child daycare centers and the option of receiving financial support for alternative childcare arrangements.
To create higher awareness amongst employees on issues such as the importance of healthy nutrition, exercise and stress reduction, and to support practical initiatives; an annual health day is held at the headquarters in Metzingen with a myriad of presentations, workshops and exhibition stands. Healthy nutrition is also promoted by HUGO BOSS at the workplace. The campus restaurant offers a balanced nutrition concept with menus that change daily, as well as a large selection of fresh fruit and salads. Employees have the option to consult with special nutrition coaches. In addition, all employees at the Group’s headquarters can exercise at the Company’s own fitness studio and take part in subsidized courses. HUGO BOSS provides its employees with similar offerings at all its sites, for example at Coldrerio and the Group’s largest production site in Izmir.
