It’s not unusual to walk through the Wearwell factory and come across a familiar face. Many of our team members have been with us for decades – some have been clocking in for more than 40 years.
Making protective clothing which keeps people safe takes good people. We have stringent policies in place to protect our staff and pride ourselves on being a people-friendly workplace, both here in the UK and in our overseas facilities in Tunisia and Morocco.
The Wearwell People’s Charter:
- Employment is freely chosen and a fair wage paid in return
- Employment rights will be respected and, as a minimum, in accordance with current employment legislation and good practice.
- Communication pathways between management and employees will be free-flowing and encouraged.
- Employees will have freedom of association with the right of collective bargaining respected.
- Working conditions will be clean and safe with the welfare and well-being of employees being paramount.
- Discrimination in any form will not be tolerated.
- Equal opportunities will be afforded to all employees.
- Bribery and corruption will not be tolerated.
- We will work with the community to nurture good relationships.
We recognise that our responsibilities extend outside of our own immediate team too. That means we take all necessary measures to ensure that no-one is exploited in the production of our goods, at any point in the supply chain.
We expect partners and sub-contractors both in the UK and offshore to demonstrate that they operate in the same manner and in accordance with our principles and People’s Charter.
