Money matters

We commit to being a living-wage employer 

Today, unfortunately, the legal minimum wages does not guarantee you and your family a decent living. Our employees deserve a wage that meets everyday needs - a wage that reflects the real cost of living. This is something we strongly believe in and have taken action on. D

Diversity & inclusion

The more diverse we are, the stronger we are


Nationalities are represented at Vestiaire Collective

We believe everyone should be treated equally, regardless of their gender, age, disability, ethnicity, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or socioeconomic background.

As a French company, measuring diversity can be complex but in doing so, we can better understand the role diversity plays, not only in our performance, but also in ensuring we are representing our millions of customers all over the world.

We are committed to :

  • 01 Empowering the local community when opening new offices.
  • 02 Promoting diversity at all levels within the organization.

And so far, we are succeeding. In our company survey, we found…

...our employees feel more represented at work than they do in society

80 % Of our employees feel empowered to authentically express themselves at work, reflecting our inclusive environment. D

What we’ve done to keep improving diversity & inclusion

To ensure fair, professional growth for everyone, we’ve implemented a new career-progression framework with clear salary bands, providing visibility around opportunities and supporting fair pay. Creating a safe, positive, healthy, and respectful environment for all is our responsibility, and that’s why we are focusing on:

  • 01 Providing training on discrimination and harassment
  • 02 Mitigating bias in recruitment
  • 03 Maintaining effective whistleblowing processes

Gender equality

How we’re closing the gap


Of our ExCom members are women

That's almost 1/3 higher than many of our industry peers 10

We know representation of women in technology is an industry wide issue which is why we are committed to reaching gender equality at Vestiaire. We’re proud to say that women make up a majority of our ranks — 57% of our total workforce. We’re focusing our efforts on where women are positioned in our company hierarchy. We’re dedicated to not only hiring women but also ensuring they are represented the highest levels of leadership.

However, they only make up 32% of our leadership and 22% of our tech jobs.

Mental health is our priority

We're creating a supportive space for employees

We recognize that startups are high-pressure working environments. Through internal surveys, we gain valuable insights into our working culture, which allows us to adapt our management and leadership styles. Although employees were happy with management overall, it was indicated that there is room for improvement on leadership practices, which we are already working on.


“I feel my manager genuinely cares and shows empathy towards me”

All employees now have access to certified psychologists through OpenUp.

Our dedicated employee resource groups
