Regional employee engagement surveys are an opportunity for our colleagues to tell us how they are feeling and share their thoughts on C&A's values, our strategy, our approach to sustainability, and how we’re doing as an employer. In 2018, we surveyed employees in Brazil, China, and Mexico. Employees at our headquarters, distribution centres, and stores in Brazil reported a high degree of understanding how employees affect our sustainability practices and a large majority, 90%, indicated they are proud of C&A’s contributions to communities, society, and the environment.

Employees are proud of our sustainability work
During the 2018 employee surveys, a high proportion of employees agreed with the statement, ‘I feel proud of C&A’s contribution on the community, society, and environment’: 92% in Brazil, 93% in China, and 90% in Mexico.
Moving from pride to action
We’re pleased with our employee engagement scores on sustainability, which show we are connecting with our colleagues on this topic. But from 2018 onwards we have begun building on the strong employee pride in our commitments, training our colleagues to act as ambassadors for sustainability, and delivering on our 2020 goals. Our new Inspiring World campaign forms a core part of this new approach, as do our internal communications and training around #WearTheChange, Cradle to Cradle CertifiedTM products, and in-store take-back programmes.
