Our people are crucial to our success. Achieving our goal to be the global leader in the sporting goods industry depends on the talents, enthusiasm and engagement of our employees.

In this section we define our HR functions and goals, and our HR programme. We also outline how we ensure worker-management communications through employee involvement in decision-making.

Employees have a responsibility to adhere to the Employee Code of Conduct; and as an employer we have the responsibility to ensure their health and safety. This includes preventive and precautionary measures covered by our Group policies. The way we reward our staff has to be fair and related to our, and their, achievements.

We aim to develop staff with opportunities for career progression, while striving to create a climate that celebrates diversity. And we look after our employees by promoting global mobility, helping staff achieve a healthy work-life balance, and offering access to a wide range of company sports activities.
