Open Hiring Fair Hiring Policies for Diversity at The Body Shop


A hiring practice that's fair and inclusive to all*


*The Body Shop uses a hiring practice that’s fair and inclusive to all candidates, regardless of their membership in a class protected by federal, provincial or local law. Open Hiring means that the first candidate to apply gets the next available opportunity across entry-level positions, at our stores and distribution center. When a hiring manager is recruiting, they select the first candidate on the list (in order of application date) for an in-person chat. During the chat, candidates are informed of open positions, company history, and roles and responsibilities. From there, interested candidates are asked three simple questions to confirm they are eligible and physically able to fulfil the requirements of the role. Starting in 2021, The Body Shop has taken purposeful action to attract and accommodate candidates that may face barriers to employment.

"A highlight was hiring someone who was visually impaired and getting to learn from them."
