DIVERSITY - RECRUITMENT AND INTEGRATION
"In 2013, L’Oreal Hong Kong started its journey by developing a new model based on four pillars, namely, Recruitment, Integration, Staff Training and Communications, with an aim to reinvent the workplace with inclusiveness and diversity.
Externally, L’Oreal Hong Kong has established a network of over 100 NGOs, Universities and individuals to promote and engage equal employment opportunities. In 2014, the Company has signed the Govt-led Talent-Wise Employment Charter and was granted the Inclusive Organisation Label while later in the same year, it was granted the Supreme Inclusive Organisation Award by HK Government, in recognition of its efforts in promoting the employment of PwD.
In the same year, L’Oreal Hong Kong was awarded the Group’s "Disability Initiative Trophies” in the Global finals following its Asia Pacific Award recognition, and has become one of the most distinguishing subsidiaries, out of 65 in total around the world, in promoting inclusion of disability at workplace.
GET INVOLVED – SALON PLACEMENT PROGRAM BY PROFESSIONAL PRODUCTS DIVISION
In 2014, the Professional Products Division (“PPD”) of L’Oreal Hong Kong has launched a professional training scheme with an aim to provide one-stop and diversified pre-employment and on-the-job training to unemployed teenagers and school leavers. This is a sustainable program targeting to recruit 50 participants each year, providing them with comprehensive training on professional knowledge and skills; and arranging placement at the salon partners. Participants with outstanding performance will be fully sponsored to attend a complimentary professional training overseas.
"BEAUTIFUL MIND", A BEAUTY TRAINING PROGRAM
L’Oréal Hong Kong established a beauty-hairdressing training program for the Hong Chi Association’s students who are intellectually challenged. In this program, L’Oreal HK provides its expertise and advice on the course content, and trains the trainers. It has also helped to fund renovations to transform classrooms into hairdressing salons and has provided hair care products.
Since 2009, 179 people with intellectual disabilities and parents were trained while nearly 900 people in the community received services such as hand massage and hair wash service for senior citizens.
In recognition of “Beauty for a Better Life”, L’Oréal Hong Kong was awarded the “Outstanding Partnership Project Award” in the Caring Company Scheme 2009/10 and was awarded the “Partnership Prize” by the L’Oréal Group in 2012.
MY CORNER – AN EXTRAORDINARY STAFF CAFÉ
In 2011, L’Oréal Hong Kong extended its 15-year partnership with the Hong Chi Association by providing job opportunities at L’Oréal for the graduates from the Hong Chi Pinehill Integrated Vocational Training Centre (“IVTC”) – a centre that provides all arounded vocational training for people with intellectual disabilities. Since then, L’Oréal’s staff lounge-cum-café, My Corner, has become a unique place where two Hong Chi graduates look after its daily operations under the supervision of a Hong Chi trainer.
Offering stable business orders to the social enterprises is another sustainable way that L’Oréal supports people with disabilities.
