“We acted quickly to give our people the training they needed to adapt to these new circumstances.”
Marcie Whitlock Senior Vice President of Global Human Resources
Our people are one of our greatest assets and we know that their passion and commitment will make the difference in achieving our sustainability goals. We support them throughout their work journeys by providing a safe working environment and ensuring the best opportunities, culture and support.
Providing an inclusive culture with the best opportunities in a supportive environment.
In 2020, we began working with an external advisor to build a global strategy to help us achieve our 2030 goal.
We have created a set of guiding principles to help our regional leadership teams create bespoke Diversity & Inclusion plans best suited to each market.
We want our people to thrive and know that helping them to grow will help drive our future growth. We provide meaningful development opportunities, reward and recognize performance, and ensure a safe working environment, while promoting and supporting employee health and well-being.
We are committed to a culture that is as diverse and vibrant as the world we travel, welcoming people from all walks of life and ensuring everyone can access opportunities in order to reach their potential.
At Samsonite, we are committed to making a difference on social issues and to giving back to our local communities. Whether it is by supporting charities, or donating our time or products, we know our philanthropic efforts can make a meaningful difference.
Decisions about the most effective ways to contribute to our communities are made and implemented locally. However, wherever in the world we operate, we share a desire to do three things:
We strive to protect earth’s beautiful places through reforestation and conservation projects. To date, we estimate that the projects we support globally have planted more than 760,000 trees. These projects have great potential to protect endangered species, prevent the degradation of ecosystems, and increase the ability of forests and planted areas to sequester carbon from the atmosphere. They also enhance quality of life for people living in or near these landscapes, as well as providing valuable habitats for wildlife.
We choose to support a range of organizations that work to prevent and treat physical and mental health issues.
We seek to empower vulnerable communities by supporting programs that help individuals, families and communities around the world to thrive.
