Flexibility in all its forms

Flexible working arrangements, which offer a breath of fresh air in view of the pace of modern life, are highly attractive for employees. At L’Oréal, they take different forms, enabling greater flexibility and a better work-life balance. The widespread introduction of this approach means that employees can do their job outside the workplace via flex-work. Similarly, flex-learning gives employees the possibility of choosing and setting up their own learning programme through e-learning platforms.

L’Oréal, the European gender equality leader

L’Oréal has been awarded First Prize in the European category of the Equileap ranking, which focuses on gender equality in the workplace as a new extra-financial investment criterion. The award recognises the Group’s commitment to encourage women all over the world, both in terms of equal access to promotion and training and reducing differences in pay levels.

L’Oréal has also been included in the Top 100 of the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index 2018, which ranks companies in terms of workplace equality for men and women.
