Vision & Culture


We are passionate about making sure we have a great company culture that supports our vision, to be close to our customers for life. If we get the culture right then we can deliver on our goal to be the leader in intimate apparel because great customer service, designing great products, passionate employees and customers will happen naturally.

Our commitment to our customers has grown stronger over 70 years, evolving into the Bendon culture statement:

ONE COMPANY, ICONIC BRANDS, A MILLION IDEAS. COLLABORATE AND COMMUNICATE.

This simple, resonant message reminds our people to actively participate, and inspire others, every day in making Bendon a world leader in intimate apparel. It is defined by 5 core values:
