Perks and Programs

We asked PVH Corp. to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • PVH Associate Relief Fund: Giving back to the communities where we work and live has long been ingrained in the fabric of our culture at PVH. Our associates led the charge to demonstrate our commitment in 2017 when Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico. With 200-plus associates impacted by the devastation, the PVH family wanted to help. We listened and created the PVH Associate Relief Fund which provides cash grants – not loans – to eligible associates in need, due to natural disasters and personal hardships. Our PVH Foundation pledged to match every dollar associates raised. In just two weeks, associates across corporate, warehouse and distribution and retail joined together to raise $165,000, amounting to an overall contribution of more than $460,000 by the Foundation and associates together. Moving forward, the fund will live on to support other PVH associates facing personal hardships.
  • Executives as Development Advocates: Our commitment to helping associates grow as professionals is a key strategic priority for our business and manifests through various hands-on programs that start at the top with our CEO, and are demonstrated throughout our executive ranks. Our leaders participate in a unique initiative called Leaders as Teachers, and teach development courses focused on building associates’ business acumen. In addition, our Power Lunch program brings associates and leaders together to discuss specific topics and provide associates an opportunity to share their thoughts. Outside of these programs, our leaders are active and dedicated to investing in our associates’ development and serving as advocates for their growth. Another example of our leader’s commitment is the “Speaker Series” where our leadership team shares their experiences and life stories.
  • PVH2O Challenge: In 2018, we entered a three-year global partnership with leading conservation organization, World Wildlife Fund (WWF). This partnership focuses on water stewardship projects in China, Vietnam, Ethiopia and India – key sourcing communities for our brands and the broader apparel industry. We involved our associates in this important initiative by creating the PVH2O Challenge. Associates were encouraged to share their own efforts around water conservation. In response, they submitted more than 2,000 photos highlighting their personal commitment to water over a 2 week period. The photos ranged from using reusable water bottles to wearing blue to show support and raise awareness of the cause. Throughout the challenge, associates were celebrated for participation, and six received the grand prize: a visit to India to see firsthand how PVH is making a difference.
  • Associates Service Trip: Since 2005, PVH has supported Save the Children, a nonprofit organization that gives children in the U.S. and around the world a healthy start and the opportunity to learn in a safe environment. Through an annual nationwide in-store donation campaign, PVH raises funds to support this worthwhile cause. In 2015, PVH associates from across our brands took supporting Save the Children a step further – they decided to embark on an annual service trip to directly impact the lives of children and give back to local communities. Through this immersive employee volunteer experience, PVH associates developed genuine camaraderie while visiting low-income towns in West Virginia, South Carolina and California to make big and small improvements to local schools and libraries.
  • Well-Being for All: We listened to our associates when developing more inclusive policies to ensure fairness for all associates and promote greater work-life balance. One of these is our Parental Leave policy, which gives U.S. associates who have given birth, a total of 12-14 weeks of paid leave and an optional six weeks of job-protected leave. Other new parents, including those who adopt or foster a child, receive six weeks of paid leave and a total of 18 weeks of job-protected leave. We also offer a Flex Back to Work program, which allows new parents to gradually transition back to full-time work after parental leave, as well as a Flex Work program in which corporate associates can work remotely one day per week or have a flexible work day schedule.
  • PVH Archives: Fostering our associates’ appreciation for the fashion industry’s history, as well as our 135 year heritage, is a unique way in which we build associates’ pride in PVH and inspire the next generation’s talent. To spotlight this, we created the PVH Archives – a physical and digital resource for our associates, to preserve and protect archival materials pertaining to PVH Corp. and its portfolio of iconic brands. This landmark initiative offers our designers and others a source of inspiration for generating ideas and innovations, as well as a creative space for cross-function collaboration. We also use it as a way to educate new hires about our company. During onboarding, we welcome new colleagues in New York with tours of the physical archives and direct other new hires to the online archives.
  • I&D (Inclusivity & Diversity) Academy: Individuality is a core value at PVH and it is demonstrated through our commitment to creating an inclusive environment where every individual is valued. Courses offered through our global I&D Academy provide associates with tools on how to identify behaviors that discourage inclusivity and how to address them. The Confronting Unconscious Bias course was taken first by our top executives and since has cascaded through our management ranks. Today, it is required for all leaders, and is open to all associates. So far, more than 1,700 associates have completed it. Other courses include Generations in the Workplace, Sweating the Small Stuff: How Micro-Messages May be Sabotaging You and Inclusion @ Work.
  • Culture of Family: At PVH, we are more than co-workers, we are a family. We are passionate about what we do. We care for one another. We do what is right for each other. We live with compassion. We can be ourselves and we connect and communicate through a shared belief in transparency and respect. Our associates know that PVH does the right thing. We demonstrate this every day through the way we deliver well-being policies, the work we do with our associates in our communities, our executives’ investment in associate development and our strong commitment to inclusion and diversity. Our values of individuality, partnership, passion, integrity and accountability is woven into everything we do, creating an culture of family that’s truly as unique and special as our family of brands.
