L'Oréal India received the prestigious EDGE (Economic Dividends for Gender Equality) certification for the third time in 2019. It is the only FMCG company and one of only five organisations in India to be accredited with the advanced MOVE level of certification.
The EDGE assessment is the leading business certification for gender equality in the workplace that is universally applicable across industries and countries. EDGE MOVE is the second level certification awarded to the company that has already implemented a framework for change, achieved significant milestones and further commits to sharpen its action plan on gender equality policies and practices.
This certification recognises L'Oréal India's leadership and commitment to create, benchmark, and support gender equity throughout the workplace and in particular its policies for 'equal pay for equal work', building a flexible work culture and parity in recruitment, promotions and leadership trainings. The company maintains a high gender equality standard, passing regularly through audit certifications and gender pay gap assessments.
L'Oréal India was awarded the EDGE Certification after a rigorous audit by EDGE, which included a comprehensive review of the company's gender policies and practices, detailed analysis of company statistics from the entire workforce, and evaluation of the employee experience in terms of career development opportunities at the company.
