Community Engagement

Our Commitment

2017 Highlights

Philanthropy

We seek to ensure our community investment activities are relevant to who we are as a business and aligned with our core values and therefore actively seek programs and partnerships which reflect our corporate values of acting as entrepreneurs, operating responsibility, and believing in our people. We have four focus areas for our community investments:

Education

We manufacture and market apparel that helps our consumers live an active life.  We define active living as a way of life that integrates health, wellness and an active lifestyle into everyday routines and brings communities together through healthy living. We believe we strengthen our communities and our business by supporting programs that encourage health, wellness and physical activity.

Entrepreneurship

At all operating levels, we are aware of the fact that we operate as part of a greater whole: the environment in which we live and work. This translates into a heightened sense of responsibility to preserve our existing environmental resources and to implement initiatives designed to reduce the impact of our activities on our surroundings.

Part of your Life

The "Part of Your Life" program is yet another way that we address local community needs in Nicaragua, Honduras and the Dominican Republic. The "Part of Your Life" program invites our employees in these three countries, to provide ideas for community projects they would like the Company to be involved in. Relationships are also established with local and municipal authorities, local charities or education and health-related institutions, in order to identify other projects where we could bring an added value that would benefit the whole community.

Volunteerism

We encourage employees to pursue their personal interests and to support causes that are meaningful to them. In this way, our employees contribute to diverse causes by getting involved in and tackling issues that affect people, their communities and the environment. We also facilitate employee-led volunteering activities in all our manufacturing locations worldwide.
