Clichy, 13 May 2020 - Since day one of the Covid-19 crisis, L'Oréal has been mobilised to ensure the health and safety of its employees worldwide. While the situation is currently evolving in many countries entering
a phase of de-confinement, the Group has taken new measures focused on prevention, social distancing and the application of protective measures to manage and secure the return of its employees to its various
sites as safely as possible.
In order to ensure that all Group employees are aware of these new measures before they return to their workplace, L'Oréal has developed a dedicated e-learning programme, #safetogether, created in-house and
in record time. The objective? To help all employees understand and adopt the new measures that will protect them and their colleagues on a daily basis.
The result of the collaboration of various teams in France and abroad, and available in 14 languages*, this module consists of short, highly educational video tutorials based on the Group's most demanding health
and safety standards, the recommendations of its doctors and those of the WHO. The 15-minute #safetogether e-learning course provides employees with all the useful information and protective measures that everyone must now adopt: how to check their health status before coming to work, how to wash their hands properly, how to put on and take off a mask, what precautions to take in the workplace, etc. Several quizzes are available to validate the assimilation of these new protective measures and the rules to are be respected in the workplace.
All L'Oréal employees are required to complete this module, available on MyLearning, the platform that brings together all internal online training courses, before returning to the workplace. Since its launch, more
than 14,000 employees have already taken the #safetogether online training and the feedback has been very positive, highlighting the ease of use and usefulness of the information. This e-learning is also mandatory for employees in the field as well as for all service providers present on the Group's various sites.
In order to enable as many people as possible to benefit from this e-learning, L'Oréal has made a version of this module available for the general public via CrossKnowledge, one of the world leaders in digital
learning (https://together.na.crossknowledge.com/). CrossKnowledge's 500 client companies will also benefit from this content. Pascal El Grably, co-founder and CEO of CrossKnowledge said, “We are proud to join forces with L'Oréal to support companies and their employees in this critical period of coming out of confinement; and to make our contribution to society by providing access to these training programmes for all. Acting alongside L'Oréal in this global initiative means bringing the values of CrossKnowledge and the Wiley Group to life in a world where education and research are more essential than ever.” Cécile Beliot, Deputy Managing Director of the Bel group commented, “At this key time for all companies, we would like to thank L'Oréal for allowing us to benefit from this very comprehensive and well-designed elearning that will enable us to provide the best possible support for our employees returning to their workplace.”
Béatrice Lazat, Director of Human Resources at KERING added, “We are delighted to have the opportunity to use this content which will help employees understand and implement all the essential
measures required for a safe return to the workplace. This open source approach reflects the new reality of cooperation between companies in the face of the Covid-19 crisis. I would like to personally thank L'Oréal.”
