The long-term retention of employees in the Company and providing continuing education and professional development play a key role for the TOM TAILOR GROUP. Given these factors, the Company has taken a number of steps to position itself as an attractive employer so that it can recruit and retain staff for the long run.

Amongst others, TOM TAILOR regularly invites speakers from outside the Company to give presentations on topics such as motivation and leadership. The TOM TAILOR GROUP’s Retail Academy enhances the skills of its workforce, including executives. This program consists of four modules, including sales, visual merchandise and management training as well as resource-oriented HR development.

In addition, TOM TAILOR GROUP provides voluntary social benefits for its staff. For example, it offers a company pension plan featuring additional employer contributions, a Group policy for occupational disability insurance and daycare subsidies.


The TOM TAILOR GROUP strongly emphasizes focused training and promotion of young talent. The Company’s training plan ranges from conventional professional training options for the head office and the selling spaces alike through internships to trainee programs for university graduates. These programs are continually updated.

The TOM TAILOR GROUP offers its employees a wide range of continuing education opportunities that are revised on an ongoing basis and adapted to meet new requirements. In annual performance reviews, the Company determines employees’ training requirements and wishes. The options include both professional classes (e.g. textile training) and skills-based development opportunities (e.g. intercultural competency). The “Leadership Lab” is aimed at executives in particular and is a multi-module executive development program for both new and experienced managers.

Internal company events for the entire staff are also regularly held on a variety of topics. One example is the lunchtime “brown bag” sessions at which employees in key positions or people responsible for new functions introduce themselves to the staff.


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 “TOM TAILOR goes balance” 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 job, private lives or families. 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 TOM TAILOR GROUP’s corporate culture distinguishes itself through its hands-on mentality, open-door policy and flat hierarchies. As a result, employees feel comfortable taking responsibility quickly and putting their ideas into action. Direct communication with executives ensures short communication chains and quick decisions. Its enthusiastic and dynamic corporate culture makes the TOM TAILOR GROUP stand out from its competitors.

As a fashion company, the TOM TAILOR GROUP depends on many international employees and considers this aspect of its workforce a key success factor. In 2016, employees of 52 different nationalities worked in the Group, enriching the Company with their different cultural backgrounds, viewpoints, opinions and experience. This opens up new potential that boosts the Company’s long-term success. Employees slated to be seconded abroad are prepared for the experience with seminars customized for the TOM TAILOR GROUP to minimize cultural barriers.
