Supporting changes in consumption
The Administration and Finance teams work with the brands and countries to effectively respond to changes in consumer habits. Consumers expect more personalised services and a more seamless shopping experience, particularly in our brands’ own stores and on e-commerce sites. Our businesses are putting in place the technologies required to roll out personalised diagnostic and recommendation tools for customers, as well as to make transactions smoother, in strict compliance with the law and best practices.
Listening to shareholders' views
Financial Communications is constantly attuned to the views of all its stakeholders. Regular surveys, suggestions by the Shareholder Consultation Committee, regular user testing to develop the best digital tools to enhance communications, and presentations on specific topics of interest are some of the actions taken by our teams to foster a close relationship of trust between L’Oréal and its shareholders. To make financial information even more accessible, this Annual Report is now translated into Mandarin Chinese. In addition, the digital version of the report incorporates the latest technology, including a navigation assistant which makes it easier to explore the varied audiovisual content illustrating the Group's performance and outlook.
