Timberland promotes a healthy workplace and cohesive community in Vietnam

Timberland partnered with CARE to offer a program focusing on improving the quality of life for production workers of our factory partners.

It included topics like gender issues, workplace communication, basic education, healthcare, financial management and occupational safety. The program’s reach extended beyond workers making Timberland® product, activities included an HIV/AIDS awareness event that was attended by over 3,000 workers, including those assembling other brands’ products. At an event to heighten awareness about HIV/AIDS, more than 3,000 workers attended, including people who make products for other brands. By fostering more substantial participation from the vendors, the company is moving toward their goal of sustainability. Timberland plans to expand this program with two other major vendors in Vietnam.
