Why we want to BOOST the employability of young people
We know that access to education can open doors for the future and it all starts with youth.
Which is why, within our global L’Oréal for Youth and L’Oréal For the Future Programs, we know it is our responsibility to increase the employability of young people who lack equitable access to job opportunities and who demonstrate potential to succeed.
- Today, the OECD estimates that a new skill has a lifespan of no more than 1.5 years.
- Covid-19’s profound and lasting impact, including working from home, has left youth unattended and alone in a complex job market.
- 46% of Gen Z are waiting for companies to provide formal education to improve the skills they need in the future
- Only 39% of students feel prepared for their future, and even less for younger students
How will we make it happen?
The responsibility of L’Oréal BOOST has been given to our talent acquisition teams around the world who meet thousands of bright young people every year. They have the freedom to reward deserving young people with an opportunity to boost their employability by offering them access to L’Oréal BOOST.
Each quarter, 5,000 young people will have three months to become certified in 33 on-demand online courses. 100,000 beneficiaries will also have access to hundreds of guided projects aimed at building job-relevant skills in under 2 hours with hands-on tutorials.
