Enhancing all lives
We will inspire and enable our people and partners to live better and sustainable lives and increase collaboration to create a positive impact on our communities.
People are at the heart of OKA. Their passionate love for the brand has been integral to its success to date.
Whether our people and partners are based in the UK, the US, or around the globe, we will inspire and enable our teams to live better and more sustainable lives and create a positive impact on our communities. We continuously work to encourage teamwork, to build healthy employee relationships and to ensure a culture that is safe, open and rewarding for everyone.
Build an ethical and trusted company with partners and suppliers
OKA’s goal is to build an ethical and trusted company offering decent work and economic growth – and we have set ourselves targets to reflect our ambitions. We expect our partners and suppliers to maintain the same standards we uphold ourselves and have issued a Supplier Code of Conduct to communicate our expectations. We acknowledge the basic rights and freedoms that are inherent to all human beings regardless of race, sex, nationality, ethnicity, language, religion or any other status. Human rights include the right to life and liberty, freedom from slavery and torture, freedom of opinion and expression, the right to work and education. In 2019 OKA became a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact, and we fully support its 10 principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
Inspire people to create a sustainable home to be enjoyed with family and friends
We are focused on inspiring our customers and the wider community to create sustainable homes. We aim to create a positive impact on society by donating our time and resources to community engagement and development projects. We have partnered with the Trussell Trust (UK) and Feeding America (USA). Both charities work towards ending hunger and poverty, a cause that is close to our hearts. We aim to support the work they do via a programme of fundraising throughout our organisation.
Support and guide our employees
We aim to treat all our employees with respect, advancing talent and supporting personal development. We recognise that healthy and safe work conditions are a basic human right, and we will establish an internal health and safety committee. We will continue to ensure a culture of hiring and promoting a diverse and inclusive workforce that reflects the makeup of local talent pools – and we have established a formal diversity, equality and inclusion policy to reflect this.
