LONDON, United Kingdom — This week, we are pleased to announce Gap Inc. as a new partner on BoF Careers, the global marketplace for fashion talent.
Founded in 1969, Gap Inc. owns Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Athleta and Intermix and operates in more than 90 countries. Since opening its doors during the heyday of liberal San Francisco, Gap Inc. has always tried to do things a little differently. Today, that ethos remains at the heart of the company’s HR practices. “What makes us great is our people and our culture,” says America’s largest apparel-focused retailer. One of the winners of BoF’s Best Companies to Work for in Fashion survey in 2017, its generous benefits packages fit with a desire to retain talent and reward its employees. Doing away with traditional review processes in an effort to remove gender bias and unproductive internal competition, the company launched an evidence-based performance pay scheme in 2014.
Compensation and rewards are now decided with a far greater emphasis on measurable business performance metrics, as opposed to subjective performance evaluations, while monthly informal one-on-one meetings with managers are designed to create opportunities for employees to learn “from both success and failure. “The approach seems to be working. As one employee says, “Gap is extremely generous with salary and compensation, but also provides lots of feedback and incentives for hard work.”
The company is currently seeking to fill over 140 global opportunities, including a PR and social media manager at Gap Inc. in New York, a director of product development and strategy for Banana Republic in San Francisco and an associate content director for Intermix, also in New York.
