------EMPLOYEES
As a socially committed employer, the TOM TAILOR GROUP focuses in particular on its employees. Fair pay is part of this; the Company ensures this using a variable compensation system and supplements it with a large number of voluntary contributions. Among other things, these comprise Company pension plan benefits above and beyond the statutory provisions, and contributions to occupational disability cover.

Training young people is a particularly high priority for the TOM TAILOR GROUP because welleducated and motivated new talent is key to an enterprise’s long-term success. The Company’s training concept includes internships, traditional vocational training and trainee programmes for university graduates, both for the centralised functions and for the selling spaces. In 2015, the Company initiated another trainee programme on the subject of brand merchandise management. The TOM TAILOR GROUP also uses collaborations with universities, presentations at fairs and its Employees Recruit Employees programme to reach potential candidates. In 2015, the TOM TAILOR GROUP sponsored the annual Young Professionals’ Day evening event organised by the trade magazine TextilWirtschaft, which shows entry-level and development opportunities in the fashion industry. The Company also takes part in the Girls’ Day and Boys’ Day in Hamburg and Hamminkeln, events at which young girls and boys can get an insight into different professions.

The personal well-being and health of its employees is a key concern for the TOM TAILOR GROUP. This is why the Group launched its Health in the Workplace initiative that comprises external employee counselling and also offers a large number of seminars. Topics include stress prevention, health in the workplace and coping with change. The Company also provides financial backing for health courses.

Since 2012, employees have been able to contact an external coaching institute for free, anonymous advice and support on questions or problems related to their workplace, private and family issues, and their health. By introducing this service, the Company supports its employees in overcoming challenging and stressful life situations and so help maintain their health over the long term. The institute is bound to complete secrecy vis-a-vis the TOM TAILOR GROUP.

The TOM TAILOR GROUP strongly emphasises pro-active communication between its employees in order to strengthen the sense of belonging in the Company. Internal Company events for staff are regularly held on a variety of topics. One example is the lunchtime “brown bag” sessions at which employees in key positions or new functions are presented. Furthermore, the intranet is used to inform employees regularly and promptly of all events that are relevant to the Company. The TOM TAILOR GROUP’s corporate culture distinguishes itself not only through its hands-on mentality, but also through flat hierarchies. Direct communication with supervisors ensures short communication chains and quick decisions.
