Our Differences Make a Difference
As a global company, our employees represent different backgrounds, ethnicities, cultures, religions, perspectives, skills and geographies. It’s these differences that strengthen us. We’re a Fortune 500 Company operating in more than 40 countries because our wealth of diverse talent and resources continually propel us forward in all aspects of our industry.
Each day we strive to make all people feel welcome here and to provide our workforce with a workplace that encourages collaboration, teamwork and free-flowing communication. Our cross-functional, cross-cultural teams have made us a preferred employer in the communities where we operate across six continents. We’re incredibly proud to be this different.
Hanes proudly employs one of the most diverse and inclusive workforces in the world. The shared ideas and creativity of our employees’ different perspectives have certainly benefited both our organization and consumers. To ensure our people are equally empowered by the differences of others, we instituted a Global Diversity and Inclusion program. Strategies within this program include workforce balancing, workplace practices and marketplace opportunities, as well as diversity training for all new hires.
Embracing & accepting all people, you included.
We celebrate diversity by understanding, embracing and accepting what makes each person unique. This includes personality, lifestyle, work style, political affiliation, gender, gender identity, ideology and all of the other wonderful things that make you who you are. Bring your unique self to us and be treated fairly, honestly and respectfully.
Our commitment to diversity also extends far beyond the workplace. We treat the communities in which we work with the same respect we treat our people. We care for the diverse ecosystems we call home with sound environmental practices and we care for our global neighbors by providing education programs and free heath care.
HanesBrands is a socially responsible manufacturer and marketer of leading everyday basic apparel under some of the world's strongest apparel brands in the Americas, Europe and Asia, as well as in Australia and South Africa. Our iconic innerwear and activewear apparel brands found in the United States and elsewhere include Hanes, Champion, Playtex, Bali, Maidenform, JMS/Just My Size, Wonderbra and Gear for Sports.

We are the world’s largest marketer of basic apparel.

In the United States, we sell more units of intimate apparel, male underwear, socks, shapewear, hosiery and T-shirts than any other company.
Founded in 1901, Hanes has a long history of innovation, product excellence, and brand recognition. In fact, nearly 90 percent of U.S. households have our company's products in them. We revolutionized Tagless T-shirts and underwear, we invented the sports bra and the stretch-cup T-shirt bra, we were the first to advertise a bra on national television (Playtex), and we are innovating with ComfortBlend and temperature-control X-Temp fabrics and seamless Smart Sizes bras.
