Where should your fashion dream job really be? To help you answer that question, Business of Fashion debuted its first annual report on the best companies to work for in the fashion industry.
In order to gain insight for the report, BoF surveyed an estimated 2,600 professionals from over 190 top fashion companies across the world in three specific categories: rewards and benefits; leadership and development; and working culture and environment.
While the industry was applauded for "crafting positive work environments" and encouraging "strong collaborative teams," at 76% and 91% respectively, the report found that the industry needs improvement in the leadership and development sector. Just 59% of employees said they were satisfied with opportunities for training and development, while 57% were satisfied with levels of transparency around career progression within the company, indicating the industry could work on better nurturing top fashion talent.
With all of those three major categories taken into account, 16 companies landed on BoF's list for 2017 including:
· Calvin Klein
· Cotton On Group
· Galeries Lafayette
· Gap Inc.
· Levi Strauss & Co.
· Nordstrom Inc.
· Tommy Hilfiger
· Warby Parker
With a surge in millennial-hiring due to the globalisation of technology and necessity of social media savviness, "these are the companies equipped with the imagination and conviction to win the war for top fashion talent."
