OUR CULTURE AND VALUES
Lead with the Customer. Inspire the Change. Own it Together. Nurture the Community. That’s LION—the core values that drive how we work. Across Tailored Brands, we’re truly customer-obsessed. We like to kick off conversations by asking one another, “What does the customer want?” We play to win and achieve breakthrough growth with our curiosity, diversity of thought that drives our innovation, and smart risk-taking. We believe that how we work together matters, and that respect, trust and inclusivity are performance multipliers.
At Tailored Brands, we offer a broad range of benefits to support employees’ total well-being – from health to wealth – and have some amazing perks too.
Here’s a brief summary of our employee benefit programs:
Health and Wellness
Employee health and wellness is a key focus at Tailored Brands. That’s why we offer a number of benefits and programs that encourage employees to get healthy and stay healthy. We offer eligible employees a wide range of medical, dental and vision benefit plans that they can tailor to fit their particular health care needs. Non-smokers and non-tobacco users are rewarded for their healthy choice and we offer that reward to any smokers or tobacco users who complete our company-sponsored cessation program as well.
We also offer our employees a comprehensive wellness program which gives them access to fitness and nutrition advice, as well as the ability to earn wellness dollars to pay for eligible medical expenses. Our Employee Assistance Program offers a variety of resources, tools and services to help, including free counseling sessions, employees and those in their households.
Additional Voluntary Benefits
We also want to help our employees plan for life events and emergencies as well as provide them opportunities to maximize their paychecks. To that end, during open enrollment, employees can choose to purchase life insurance, accident insurance, disability insurance and pre-paid legal services. Employees can also elect to participate in our 401(k) Savings Plan. We support employees to continue their education by reimbursing a portion of their eligible education expenses, and the Tailored Brands Family Educational Foundation Scholarship Program helps children of employees achieve their educational goals through college scholarships. We also offer financial assistance to help pay for the expensive costs of adoption. Finally, employees have the opportunity to participate in Tailored Brands Perks at Work which allows them to save money on large purchases as well as every-day items.
Assisting with the Commute
Commuting to and from work in large urban areas can be a challenge. Employees are encouraged to carpool and rewarded for doing so. We recognize that carpooling saves people money, minimizes stress, and reduces greenhouse gases associated with the commute to work. In addition, to help employees utilize more public transportation, we offer a free shuttle to and from two train stations near our corporate offices in Fremont, CA.
Across the Company, we believe that it is important to recognize employees for doing great work and setting examples of living our values. We have several tools available to offer recognition, one of which is an online peer-to-peer recognition program. This tool allows employees and leaders to instantly send a “Roar” to a peer for going above and beyond. This program helps ensure our employees know their efforts are being noticed.
EMPLOYEE TRAINING AND ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS
- A cornerstone of our Company’s success is our commitment to promote employee growth through extensive and ongoing training programs. Our training seeks to emphasize personal and career development, employee empowerment, and building quality relationships with colleagues and customers. We incorporate a multifaceted approach to training that includes comprehensive on-boarding programs coupled with a series of continuing-education offerings.
- Leadership Circles shape the Tailored Brands leaders of tomorrow. Participants include a diverse representation of directors and above from the offices or distribution centers/supply chain and regional managers/regional sales directors and above from stores, business units and brands. Over a two-year period each cohort works through eight modules where they develop leadership skills, engage with Company executives and leaders and visit eight of the Tailored Brands shared business functions to learn and influence processes in a hands-on, first person experience.
- In our stores, employees have the opportunity to continuously learn and improve to move up to their desired role. Training programs range from hands-on in-store training, to on-demand videos and instructor-led webinars. Our “Management Essentials Training” (MET) program consists of 10 live webinars delivered over a six-month period for all newly-promoted managers and store employees nominated by their multi-unit manager.
- Our history of internal promotion is a key component of our Company. Fast track growth opportunities reward high-performing employees that excel in our employee-centric environment.
EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT SURVEY
We are committed to asking questions, listening and taking action at all levels to drive employee engagement and create a great place to work! Each year we survey our employees to measure and improve employee engagement and satisfaction. Action plans are created and implemented by leadership based on the results of this survey, and overall results are shared globally.
In 2019, the Company donated $1 for every survey competed to The Willie Lopez Emergency Assistance Fund, an internal nonprofit supported solely by Tailored Brands employees.
