COVID-19 and Working at PVH

As we continue to navigate the impact ofCOVID-19 and look ahead to shaping our new ways of working, the health, safety and well-being of our associates remains our #1 priority.

New hires will be welcomed through an adapted, at-home onboarding program. Equipment will be delivered safely to your front doors.

We will continue to work this way until September 2021, and are looking to shape a more hybrid work-from-home / office model in the coming months.

Should your application be successful, our Talent Acquisition Team will outline the recruitment process and Covid Work policies in your initial call.

*Please note that should you be applying for a role at our PVH Studios, or in our distribution facilities, the hybrid model already applies.

PVH Europe and ourbrands,TOMMY HILFIGER and CALVIN KLEIN, are committed to fostering an inclusive and diverse community of associates with a strong sense of belonging.
