Good for Communities

We champion our employees to be a force for good in and alongside the communities we belong to globally.

Our Good for Communities strategic driver is informed by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Enhancing Communities

We encourage employees to share their time and voice to be change makers within their local communities. Enhancing communities is a team effort, which is why we set a goal to provide opportunities for all employees to engage in community programs and launched a program for Fossil customers to contribute towards the mission of Fossil Foundation. In 2021, we announced that 1% of every online purchase at will support the Fossil Foundation and our mission to empower underserved youth around the world.

Empowering Women and Girls

We are proud that women make up over 60% of our global workforce. Their strength and passion to make a difference inspire us to do even more to empower women and girls. We seek to amplify the power and impact of women inside and outside of our four walls. When we constructed the Make Time for Good strategy, we wanted to formalize our commitment to being a leader in women’s empowerment. Our efforts focus on strategic partnerships with women-focused organizations and creating a new model of mentorship to reach more women and girls outside our company.
