The company counts more than 20,000 associates in over 100 countries and more than 3,000 points of sale worldwide, and operates under three signature brands: Aldo, Call It Spring, and a multi-brand retail concept, GLOBO. The ALDO Group is also an industry-recognized wholesale distributor and third-party sourcing provider of fashion footwear, accessories and handbags. Each brand, each associate, at every touchpoint, acts according to the company’s three values: Love, Respect and Integrity.
COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY
At the ALDO Group we are committed to our people, the planet and the world that we live in. Since the very beginning we have been a “different” kind of modern company, one founded on compassion and ethics, aiming to influence society in both fashion and social responsibility.
Our workforce is as diverse as our geographical footprint. We recognize that each associate has individual experiences, views and opinions, and it’s our goal to maintain an inclusive workforce environment that encourages each one of them to embrace who they are and reach their full potential. Our CEO, David Bensadoun, is a committed ambassador to this cause, and is determined to move the needle forward.
We value our diversity and we know that true innovation can only be born through a free exchange of knowledge, ideas and personal experience. That’s why we love all people regardless of their ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender identification and background.
VISION FOR THE FUTURE
In line with our purpose of creating a world of love, confidence and belonging, the ALDO Group is constantly working to make a difference and engage all its associates and partners to embed diversity and inclusion into our daily practice.
We continuously strive to create and maintain a diverse and inclusive environment where all perspectives are heard, respected and valued. This empowers our people and gives them an equal opportunity to succeed, regardless of their background and life experiences. We truly believe that this will have a positive impact on the business and on our associates’ levels of happiness and well-being.
Building on this long history of commitment to our people and the world around us, our focus in the coming years will be to consciously de-bias all recruiting and talent processes through training, workshops, networking and resource groups, work/life integration initiatives and reporting our results in a regular and transparent manner.
