At Lee, we’re committed to our planet, our people, and our product. Within our walls, and with our long-term suppliers, our business is built on trust and shared values - with human rights, ethical practices, health and safety, transparency and environmental goals vital to our culture.
Striving to develop and improve sustainable design and production processes, we believe in creative change, minimising our impact on the environment and maximising positive impact on our people, customers, and the wider industry.
We work hard to create working environments that build positive culture and professional pathways, ensuring that they’re also safe and free from discrimination and harassment. Workers in all of our supplier facilities (and everywhere) have the right to freely choose employment, and we support the right to fair compensation and collective bargaining.
Supporting our efforts to operate at the highest standard, all Lee suppliers are regularly audited by a Kontoor Factory Compliance Auditor, ensuring the highest level of compliance standards well within the scope of Global Compliance guidelines.
Our teams’ mental health is important to us, with the EAP (Employee Assistant Program) available 24/7, offering confidential counselling for both employees and their family members. We also offer flexible work arrangements, including a much-loved Summer hours program, alongside an active Diversity and Inclusion social club, charity drives and more.
