Beyond treating our staff well, we want to be a partner for the communities we live in too. Through our committment to the N-Club (a German sustainability club) we have met and subsequently partnered with Elbe Werkstätten, a non-profit for disabled people, and they now make the wooden frame of our beds, passing the same rigorous quality tests that we apply to all of our products.
We adhere to highest social standards at our facilities all over the world and make sure that our partners do the same. We have therefore joined the Business Social Compliance Initiative, and all our facilities and sites are independently audited to meet a fair code of conduct. Ironically, this commitment has not come at the expense of price. We discovered that a more stable and committed workforce actually drives our quality and ensures a sustainable product and production. Our code includes the ten following key elements to improve workers environments, as audited and certified through the Business Social Compliance Initiative BSCI.
