One for One
Why work at TOMS? The answer is simple – to improve lives through business. Whether you’re looking for meaning in your work or you want to help those in need, our promise to our employees is the ability to give back through their work. Working at TOMS will provide you with the opportunity to give back and thrive.
If you are not familiar with TOMS, our business philosophy is rooted in the concept of Giving. It all started in 2006 when Blake Mycoskie befriended children in a village in Argentina and found they had no shoes to protect their feet. Wanting to help, he created TOMS, a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. Realizing that One for One® could serve other global needs, TOMS has since launched other products including eyewear, coffee, bags and backpacks. As always, with every product you purchase, TOMS will help a person in need. One for One®.
Since our founding, we have given over 75 million pairs of shoes to children in need, helped restore sight to more than 500,000 people, helped give more than 450,000 weeks of safe water, supported safe birth services for 175,000 women and served more than 70,000 youth through bullying prevention and response programs. We are giving in over 70 countries around the world through partnerships with more than 100 Giving Partners. Excited yet?
