JOG stands for Join Our Game. We are a team first and foremost and our very name underscores teamwork and inclusivity. Each member of the JOG Athletics team is expected to contribute to an environment where every employee feels respected and valued.
JOG Athletics has taken the further step of developing its own Social Charter in order to provide greater definition around our ethics and standards. The Charter details points for inspection that the JOG Athletics Team endeavors to respect and enforce, whether as the owner of our own production or through the sub-contracting of our production.
This charter acts as a complement to the national legal provisions of the countries in which it manufactures and/or orders the manufacture of products it designs and distributes under its own trade names. In the event of a contradiction between national legal provisions and/or the provisions of its present Charter, the JOG Athletics Team will enforce the most favorable provisions with regards to employees.
The textile and garment industry continues to experience significant issues with both forced and child labor and is a very real problem globally. While there is greater awareness surrounding this issue, there are still millions of children who are working in these factories. The problem is compounded with forced labor.
Forced labor takes many forms such as physical constraint, direct or indirect, threats, intimidation, and/or other methods of constraint.
JOG Athletics vehemently opposes the use of both forced and child labor and supports the work of such organizations that are seeking to end these practices.
The JOG Athletics Supplier Code of Conduct reflects core ILO conventions, sets forth expectations for the protection of workers and seeks to mitigate risks including forced labor/slavery, human trafficking and any risks inherent to the production process or work environment.
