A PLACE WHERE GREAT PEOPLE WANT TO WORK
Tapestry is devoted to being an engaging, innovative, inclusive and diverse workplace. During 2019, we established new goals for expanding diversity in our North America Tapestry and brand leadership teams, and reducing gaps in feelings of inclusion by gender and ethnicity across our employee population globally.
Inclusion and Diversity
Our Tapestry is made up of many stories, backgrounds and perspectives, each playing an important part in creating the company we believe in, and our culture of belonging.
WOMEN IN THE WORKPLACE
We are proud to have participated in the McKinsey & Company LeanIn.org and Women in the Workplace study for the second consecutive year. Given that women are the majority of our employee population and customer base, we gleaned meaningful insights into how we can further support the women of Tapestry in their personal and professional development.
HUMAN RIGHTS CAMPAIGN CORPORATE EQUALITY INDEX 2019
For the sixth consecutive year, Tapestry achieved a score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index, earning the designation as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.
CEO ACTION CHECK YOUR BLIND SPOTS BUS TOUR
Our North Bergen, New Jersey Office served as a stop on the CEO Action Check Your Blind Spots Unconscious Bias Bus Tour. Through a series of interactive scenarios, our employees were able to identify and address unconscious biases and drive inclusive behaviors.
HR ASIA MAGAZINE “BEST COMPANIES TO WORK FOR”
In 2019, Coach was designated “Best Companies to Work For” by HR Asia Magazine in China, Hong Kong SAR and Taiwan, China.
In 2019, we piloted in-person Inclusion training for our NA employees, and plan to roll this out to employees globally to foster a welcoming and open workplace where we fully embrace diverse perspectives to drive innovation and business results.
FORBES “BEST EMPLOYERS FOR DIVERSITY 2020”
Tapestry was listed on the Forbes 2020 “Best Employers for Diversity” list for the third consecutive year. This recognition is based on an independent survey of 60,000 U.S. employees evaluating their employers on issues of diversity in the workplace.
We’re proud of our diverse population and we have championed diversity within our Board of Directors. Three out of eight board members are women, four out of eight are ethnic minorities, and 60% of Tapestry leadership positions are held by women.
We strive to provide a working environment where our people can grow and progress. We place an emphasis on internal mobility, and through various development programs, facilitate opportunities for our talent to take the next step in their career journeys.
TRANSFORMING MANAGERS INTO EXTRAORDINARY LEADERS
The Common Thread is our global development program designed to establish strong management behaviors and skills to effectively lead others.
Design-led thinking is an approach to creative problem solving, which puts human beings at the center of everything we do. Last year, we conducted a design-led thinking experiment at Coach to help drive creativity and collaboration, improve decision making and impact culture.
ACCELERATING THE CAREERS OF EMERGING LEADERS
Our Emerging Leaders Program is a one-year development plan designed to advance the careers of our global mid-level leaders.
Whole Life & Well-Being
We want Tapestry to be a place where our people love to work. Ensuring our employees have the resources and benefits available to achieve work-life integration is just one of the ways we nurture whole life and well-being.
