EILEEN FISHER creates simple, timeless shapes designed to work together effortlessly, season after season. We make our clothes to last—and then take them back to be reworn again or remade into entirely new designs. We believe in the fundamental potential of every person—our employees, our customers and those who make our clothes—and are committed to creating conditions that empower people. It’s all part of our commitment to doing business in a way that helps build a better industry. And a better future. Our clothes are sold at over 65 EILEEN FISHER retail stores, and 1,000 department and specialty stores internationally, as well as 2 RENEW stores, which feature gently worn and remade designs from our take-back program. EILEEN FISHER is the largest women’s fashion company to be a certified B Corporation, which means we voluntarily meet high criteria for social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency.
Team Description:
The People & Culture (P&C) area supports our business and our people through programs and initiatives that promote the cultural values of the company. In 2018, P&C began to shift to a new structure that offers more focused, specialized and enhanced services. Incorporating certain principles of the Holacracy model and self-organizing teams, P&C is exploring how best to enhance its effectiveness while distributing authority and decision making throughout the area. We work closely with individuals and teams throughout the organization in a variety of ways, always through the lens of our company purpose, strategy and values.
P&C consists of five functional areas (Benefits, Compensation and Operations; Internal Communications; Learning & Development; P&C [HR/OD] Partners; and, Talent Acquisition). These areas are governed by the P&C Circle, which comprises the heads of each of the functional areas. In addition to being the Head of the Talent Acquisition Circle, this role will be a member of the P&C Circle.
The Talent Acquisition Circle is responsible for providing a positive and seamless candidate experience while sourcing and selecting the best talent in alignment with the EILEEN FISHER employment brand.
