As one of the world’s largest fashion retailers, H&M offers endless career opportunities. A fast-paced, buzzing environment with great diversity – a place where the customer is always the centre of attention.
Today, H&M employs around 177,000 people in over 73 markets.
But what truly makes us stand out are our remarkable employees. From stylish Sales Advisors and Visual Merchandisers to computer whizzes and business aware planners – all our employees share a great ambition and an anything-is-possible attitude. Not to mention an excellent eye for fashion. It’s thanks to them that we have grown – with over 4,972 stores in more than 73 markets worldwide. And we are continuing to grow.
Our values – the H&M spirit
Our values reflect the heart and soul of H&M. They define what it takes to work here and how we do things. When we interact with colleagues and customers around the world, our values help us develop and grow. Individually these values may seem obvious, but together they form a culture that we think is unique and different from many other companies.
WE ARE ONE TEAM
WE BELIEVE IN PEOPLE
STRAIGHTFORWARD AND OPEN-MINDED
KEEP IT SIMPLE
“When my grandfather, Erling Persson, founded H&M in 1947, he combined a strong business idea with a value-driven way of working. These very same values have helped us build the global fashion company we are today. Every day, our values are brought to life by colleagues around the world.” Karl-Johan Persson, CEO
How we work together
People are our success, and we are committed to being a good employer. By providing a fun, creative and dynamic workplace, we all grow together.
Our approach is shaped by a strong respect for each individual. This applies to every aspect of the employment – from fair wages, working hours and freedom of association, to equal opportunities for growth and development within the company. Being a good employer is particularly important in countries where laws and regulations fall short of our own standards and requirements.
We have a strong ethical approach. This means that we take a clear stand against discrimination and harassment wherever we operate. Our workforce possesses great diversity in terms of age, gender and ethnicity, all of which are great assets for our company. Equality is very important to us. An example of this is that 50% of our board members are women.
At H&M, we endorse the “open door principle”, which gives every employee the right to discuss work-related issues directly with management. Our employees also have the right to collective bargaining. We constantly strive for good relations with employees as well as employee associations and trade unions.
