Our people are our greatest asset. We know that their passion and commitment will make the difference in achieving our sustainability goals. With employees in more than 40 countries, we want to make sure that Samsonite is a welcoming place for everyone and that we create a work environment and business culture that helps our teams grow and thrive together.


I love the Tumi culture and our team: we are close-knit, supportive and empowering. Even through the toughest of times we find ways to innovate and move forward, focusing on evolving and building team spirit and accountability to realize some incredible projects. Our team mantra is to “Be Agile, Be Creative, Be Positive”, which I think sums up the Tumi workplace culture perfectly.”

Charming Ho Tumi Regional Marketing Director, Asia Pacific & Middle East


In 2023 we launched our Global Unconscious Bias Training worldwide to offer a principle-based and practical approach to identifying and addressing bias in everyday working life. It’s part of our strategy to develop leaders who create an inclusive workplace where everyone feels respected and valued. To date, senior leadership teams and more than 600 employees globally have completed the training.

Progressing towards our goal for all employees to have access to professional development opportunities by 2025, we provided employees with various training opportunities in 2023. For example, our new Emerging Leader training targets mid-level people managers to help develop or sharpen essential skills needed to build positive relationships with team members, inspire engagement, and drive productivity.

Diversity and inclusion

Throughout 2023, and continuing into 2024, we have worked with partners to define our gender balance strategy that will allow us to raise awareness and achieve our gender balance goal by 2030.

On March 8th 2023, Samsonite employees in over 35 countries celebrated International Women’s Day, dressing in purple and decorating their workspaces to represent support for all women and their contributions to families, communities, and our organization.

I learned that our experiences as women give us unique abilities, characteristics, and stories that connect us. It motivates me to do better and to set an example for other young females, especially my daughter.”

Samsonite has been trading for over 110 years and some of our supplier relationships go back decades. As we’ve grown, they’ve grown; and as we have looked more closely at issues like workers’ welfare and working conditions, they have come on the journey with us.

We buy from suppliers in many different countries and have procurement teams spread across different regions. Before we start working with a new supplier, we carry out comprehensive due diligence checks to ensure they demonstrate no serious current health, safety, or labor issues.

Suppliers must agree to our Ethical Charter, which sets out our commitment to fair and safe workplaces. All suppliers that have signed our Ethical Charter are also enrolled onto Samsonite’s Global Social Compliance Program to support them in upholding and implementing the Charter principles through regular audits and monitoring.



Tumi has been partnering with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® in Memphis for 14 years. We support this great cause through annual fundraising and cause-related marketing efforts. To date, we’ve helped to raise over US$8.3 Million for St. Jude and supported over 3,000 families through our Tumi Takes You Home Event.


Samsonite volunteers distributed 725 High Sierra Citypaks, and 90 Swoop SG children’s backpacks at the Homeless Connect Toronto event in 2023, which brought more than 100 free services and resources – such as dentists, vaccine clinics, legal aid and housing services – together to support people experiencing homelessness in Toronto.


In 2023, our business supported the planting of over 214,408 trees across our geographies with partners such as Reforest Action.
