There’s no avoiding the negative press surrounding the wider garment industry across Asia, we make it our personal challenge to confront and improve this stereotype. Our business would be nothing without our members. That’s why we have the mantra that our people are as important as our products.


We take utmost care to ensure we go beyond the requirements of law to provide clean, healthy and enjoyable working environments for members. Guardians for safety and integrity exist at each location of operation, and we regularly make unannounced site checks to ensure that not only mandatory building, fire, and electrical safety standards are met and exceeded, but that our members are also happy and healthy.


We reward loyalty and hard work with the respect it deserves, providing complementary health and life insurance for our members in our sourcing centres. We want to retain our best people and give them every opportunity to flourish and grow with us, providing childcare, gym facilities, sanitary towels for our female employees, and transport to and from our offices. Work / life balance is important to us and at the end of the working day the lights go off so everyone can get home in good time.


Our in-house kitchens freshly prepare two meals a day for our members. The provision of a nutritious lunch ensures everyone is staying a little healthier while bringing colleagues together away from their desks and creating a balance to the day.


Good businesses understand that investing in your people is crucial to keeping them. Without progress all companies stagnate and lack innovation and ways to improve processes. We actively train in house and send members on courses to develop further skills across a broad range of work-related topics.


All work and no play doesn’t sound like our idea of fun. Each month we get together to celebrate the birthdays of Centro members and we also hold regular family days out to thank our members for their support. At our on-site gym at our HQ, we run joint exercise classes like yoga, and games tournaments across the year.


As well as looking after our own members, we also want to do what we can to help the wider community and help improve standards for the next generation. We have founded a free school for the children of our factory colleagues to ensure they are able to come to work safe in the knowledge that their families are getting a good education. Outside of our own business we provide funding for a school ran by the Doers Charitable foundation, educating children from deprived areas of Dhaka. In addition to this we also have an initiative to support the families of visually impaired children by covering their educational expenses.
