3. Looking after our suppliers
We have an important role in empowering workers and improving livelihoods to contribute to the socio-economic development of the countries where we produce our items. The incredible relationships that we have are testament to our shared resilience and enthusiasm, especially considering the highs and lows during the unprecedented challenges of the last few years.we will always stand side by side.
We ensure that the prices we pay to our suppliers through timely payments enable the correct wages for all workers within their factories.
Never missing a payment
All of our payments are made on time to ensure we do not affect our suppliers cash flow - as this could affect wages being paid on time. To this date, we have never not paid a supplier.
As we grow, they grow
We invest in training development for our factories to ensure that as we grow and develop new processes they are able to too.
We speak with our suppliers on a daily basis. Keeping close contact with them is so important to us to build and grow our relationships.
Regular In-person Meets
Looking after our suppliers will never change. In usual circumstances, our product team would visit our factories on a regular basis, yet as travel has been very restricted we have depended upon daily check-ins and regular video calls. We are looking forward to visiting in person again in the near future.
We want to support our suppliers on a deeper level. By providing regular coaching sessions for them, we aim for them to develop and better their skills providing a positive impact on their self-confidence, wellness and work performance
As our suppliers grow, this will be providing more job opportunities within their local communities.
