How Employees Embody the Brand

This study investigates how a brand becomes embodied through its employees. A two-year ethnography is used to show how Hollister employees relate to their bodies in different spaces. Findings shed light on how employees’ bodies are unconsciously driven by (un)obtrusive forms of control by the brand.
