We genuinely care about the happiness and well-being of all our employees. Both in our head office in Bruges and in our own production facility in Sri Lanka, we want everyone to feel good at work. In the first place, that means a safe working environment, fair working conditions and respect for the rights of every employee. Besides, we take our commitment a step further. For instance, at our production facility our employees can also count on medical care, transport to and from work, healthy meals, etc.
During the coronacrisis we pursue these social responsibilities and ethical approach too. We have taken the necessary precautions so our warehouse can process your order in complete safety. Our customer service, account managers and other colleagues will also remain at your service. They make maximum use of home office.
In Sri Lanka we had to close our production facility to assure the safety of the staff. Nonetheless, we still guarantee the basic wages of our employees. This ethical approach is firmly rooted in our corporate values and we see this decision as our social responsibility.
Nevertheless, we’re looking forward to the future! That is why, the management in our production facility is already planning and preparing the restart. It goes without saying, that the restart can only take place when we have taken the necessary precautions to prevent the spread of the virus.
The working circumstances in our entire supply chain are continuously evaluated and – if necessary – optimised in accordance with the 11 principles of the amfori BSCI code of conduct. Which shows good results: we received an overall A rating for the most recent amfori BSCI audit carried out at the DASSY production facility. The highest rating possible.
Under normal circumstances, we think it’s important to set up company initiatives and support the spontaneous initiatives of our employees. For example, in our production facility there is a debating club, cricket team, dance group, creative workshops, etc. The staff in Bruges can enjoy the DASSY fitness room, ping-pong table, yoga sessions, etc.
