THE PLACE OF POSSIBLE AND THE PLACE TO BE
Within our group, several independent brands reach customers in different ways all over the world. Yet, we are one team joined by the same values, and as an employer we share the same vision – to be the Employer of Choice.
It is a vision to help us achieve the goals we have set on all levels of our business to become the customer’s most loved fashion brand.
OUR SHARED VALUES
The H&M group joins together 177,000 colleagues from across the world. Together, we share a value-driven way of working centered around the customer. We work in teams where innovation and creativity are promoted by the diversity within our company. Our way of working is rooted in the H&M group shared values, which build on a fundamental respect for the individual and the belief in everyone’s ability to use their own initiative. Together our values create an open, dynamic, diverse and inclusive company culture, where anything is possible.
Our work at H&M is steered by values rather than by manuals and rules. The values are present in everything we do in our daily work, and they form a common bond between H&M employees worldwide.
Working with these values ensures a workplace in which the decision paths are short, where everyone works together at a fast pace and where everyone can rely on each other’s knowledge and abilities. Together our values form a culture, where they are at the forefront of our thinking and behaviors, and always present in every act and every choice we make.
Integrity and respect towards everyone who contributes to our success is vital and deeply rooted in our company values. The symbolic leadership is one of the keys to our success. Our managers always share our values and be the good example in everything they do. We provide an inclusive workplace where everyone’s personality is valued, and where we provide equal opportunities when it comes to our employees’ growth and development. The engagement of our employees is a major contributing factor to our success. Our values support personal growth through continuous training and skills development.
At H&M we believe in our people, and always encourage new ideas and initiatives. Along with training and leadership guidance, there’s no end to the potential for a successful, and global, career within H&M. We also believe that the best way to learn is by doing. Listen and learn from your colleagues and never be afraid to ask for help or advice if there is something you are unsure of. You will not be sitting in a training room with training manuals to learn from, instead you will learn by working alongside others.
To support our employees, H&M has built up a collection of internal courses. Each and every one of these courses will enable you to carry out your role more efficiently. It is important that you take an active part in your own training, as it is designed to help you move forward together with us. Join us in an inspiring, fast-paced, exciting and ever-changing environment where your career possibilities are endless.
When it comes to training, we strive to:
- Enable you to take the lead in your own development.
- Provide global training in your own language.
- Enhance your learning experience by providing variety in the ways to learn; e.g. face-to-face, digital form etc.
- Use sustainable methods when delivering training or creating training materials.
A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
Our sustainability vision is for the H&M group to lead the change towards a sustainable fashion industry based on a fully circular approach and renewable energy. With customers around the world, we create large-scale demand for sustainable materials and circular solutions. Our long-term approach means we can support innovations and make them scalable while driving increased transparency throughout the value chain. The vision includes working to achieve a fair, equal workplace both at the H&M group and among suppliers, also contributing to good communities based on diversity and inclusion.
Together we create a workplace that attracts the talent that we need for our continued success. That is a place with endless possibilities to grow and where employees make a conscious choice to stay. A place that is transparent and trustworthy, fair and equal. A place where our company values are the red thread through everything we do.
We embrace openness and diversity, where individual differences are welcomed, recognized and appreciated. We provide safe and healthy workplaces and offers attractive and sustainable work environments for all employees.
Our business idea is to consistently offer our customers fashion and quality at the best price in a sustainable way.
