Iskur: Re-entry to the workforce for women in Izmir

With some 4,000 employees, Izmir (Turkey) is the largest HUGO BOSS production site. To strengthen its site, HUGO BOSS has been committed to vocational training there since 2010. In cooperation with the local labor agency, the Iskur program supports women who want to re-enter the workforce. Hazal Güder is one of the 1,479 women who have successfully attended the program – today she works as a manager at our location in Izmir. In an interview, she talks about what this means to her.

HUGO BOSS & Central Saint Martins

Since 2018, the HUGO BOSS Scholarship has been supporting students of the postgraduate course MA Fashion Communication at the renowned arts and design college Central Saint Martins, which forms part of the University of the Arts London. Its educational reputation across art, design and performance is demonstrated by the ever-growing achievements of its alumni.

At Central Saint Martins, young talents can develop their skills across different fashion disciplines. Each year, the HUGO BOSS Scholarship supports three students with a stipend of £3,000 each and they are selected by an academic panel at the college.

The current HUGO BOSS scholars talents set very different priorities in their work: whether it is editorial work, working as a stylist & creative director or the academic examination of fashion history, they all share a passion for fashion and an interest in sustainability.
