L’ORÉAL CELEBRATES 10 YEARS OF ITS ‘SHARE & CARE’ SOCIAL INNOVATION AND EMPLOYEE BENEFITS PROGRAM
Introduces new benefits to support employees with cancer and promote mental health
Clichy, 16 November 2023 – L’Oréal today recognized the ten-year anniversary of Share & Care, the social innovation and employee benefits program launched in 2013 that today serves the Groupe’s employees around the world. Since its launch, Share & Care has ensured that all L’Oréal employees enjoy social protections of the highest standard, alongside best-in-class benefits in each market in which L’Oréal operates. Share & Care continues to evolve, incorporating new social initiatives – in areas such as cancer, domestic violence and mental wellbeing – to protect and support employees amidst a changing social landscape.
Share & Care provides a global framework for a vast range of employee benefits spanning health, financial support, wellbeing and the workplace, with provisions that often surpass the local requirements. Already, Share & Care has enshrined a minimum of 24 months' salary in case of disability, natural or accidental death; at least 14 weeks fully paid maternity or primary parental leave; six weeks fully paid paternity or secondary parental leave; 75% minimum reimbursement for major health expenses; and a decent wage as the ‘gold standard’ available to every L'Oréal employee in every country.
“We conceived Share & Care as a long-term commitment to our employees so that each L'Oréalian feels supported and cared for, wherever they are and whatever may be happening in their lives. We believe Share & Care is one of the most comprehensive and ambitious employee benefits programs that an international company can offer,” said Jean-Claude Le Grand, Chief Human Relations Officer, L’Oréal Groupe. “Social innovation has always been part of the L'Oréal mindset and current times compel us, more than ever, to help and support our people in order to help them face ongoing global uncertainties.”
In 2023, Share & Care expanded its scope by introducing new measures, both reactive and proactive, to further support employees facing unexpected life events.
Supporting Employee Health and Personal Safety
Recognizing the growing toll of cancer on society, in 2023, Share & Care introduces new benefits for those who have been diagnosed with cancer such as financial, psychological and practical support during treatment and upon returning to work. Alongside pre-existing cancer awareness and prevention campaigns, the new benefits underscore L’Oréal’s commitment to the Working with Cancer charter, which it signed as a co-founding member in 2022. Share & Care has also expanded support for victims of domestic violence, offering resources and support at the moment of need, and by committing to a safe working environment.
Encouraging Wellbeing in the Workplace and Beyond
During the Covid-19 global health crisis, Share & Care offered on-demand psychological support to employees and introduced a hybrid working policy, with the option to work remotely up to two days per week for eligible jobs. In 2023, Share & Care encourages employees to commit to their continued wellbeing, through worldwide mental health awareness actions, including specialized training on topics such as psychological safety. Furthermore, the Groupe continues to create workplace environments that support everyday life at L’Oréal, through spaces that encourage creativity, collaboration and connection, as well as spaces for reflection and concentration.
