IEA Americas works closely with its production and logistics partners to reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible. In this vein, we also encourage our Design Team to offer our clients sustainable options in fabrication and construction. Numerous options in fabrication including rPet, fabrics constructed of seashells, recycled coffee grounds and other elements can make a difference in your uniform program.

IEA Americas’ leadership team pioneered recycling programs for uniform/apparel programs and now takes this one step further with upcycling opportunities, such as transforming old uniforms into a variety of products including backpacks, waist packs, handbags, phone cases or zip portfolios. Clients have used these upcycled products for a variety of purposes including backpacks for new hires, and direct sale to employees as fundraisers. Your IEA representative will be pleased to discuss innumerable options for employing sustainability in your program.

Program Management

The key to success in any relationship is fluid and crisp communication. The IEA Americas Program Management team is well-versed in the intricacies of major uniform and corporate apparel programs. On award, an experienced Program Manager will be assigned as your liaison. Our Program Manager will serve as the single point of contact for all program information prior to launch. Guided by a launch calendar that is shared cross-functionally between our organizations, our Program Manager will ensure that critical milestones are met to ensure an on-time launch.

Typically, as the roll-up to launch commences, our Program Manager will convene weekly in-person or videoconferences with all appropriate stakeholders within our company and yours. The timeline is reviewed, and deliverables are discussed. Once your program launches successfully and on time, the Program Manager transitions to a less-frequent cross-functional meeting schedule but is always accessible to the key program managers within your organization. Quarterly Business Review (QBR) meetings will include key senior leadership members of the IEA Americas team, and will include a review of key program performance metrics and options for any cost-savings, either process or cost-driven.

Our Program Manager, working closely with our digital development team, will create a portal to enable your access to key program metrics information on demand. This enables your management team to access the same information we see in real-time, offering the added convenience of on-demand customized reporting across any manner of program information. Essentially, if we collect the information in our ERP system, we can report it back to you.

IEA Americas will also provide you with a 24/7 escalation point of contact in senior management.

As one of the most critical functions in terms of the success of our relationship, IEA Americas takes great pride in selecting and mentoring only the most qualified individuals who will undertake this important relationship role.
