All employees are committed to the following specific Social Standards
With the HUGO BOSS Social Standards, the company strives to achieve this for all employees and its partners worldwide, based on internationally recognized standards from the United Nations and the International Labour Organization (ILO). The HUGO BOSS Social Standards are complemented by a Code of Conduct and the internal social compliance guideline, which include a non-discrimination principle and the freedom to unionize.
In case of doubt, an independent ombudsman is available to employees worldwide who have questions or potential complaints about the Social Standards. The ombudsman can be contacted anonymously over the Internet or by phone. Details are available here.
A well-structured, comprehensible compensation policy ensures equal opportunity and freedom from discrimination. It also makes the company more competitive, because it motivates employees and demonstrates respect for employee rights.
The goal of HUGO BOSS is to ensure fair, competitive compensation around the world. The core of the company’s program is a fair, transparent compensation system that observes industry and collective wage agreements. It is based on the qualification and performance required for a specific position, regardless of gender or other diversity factors. This principle is also embedded in the HUGO BOSS Code of Conduct.
