L’Oréal has developed a global policy to promote the inclusion of people with disabilities since the 90's, in close collaboration with local and international experts including associations and NGOs. A network of Diversity coordinators active across the Group’s 65 entities conducts initiatives in line with this policy, adapting them to the local circumstances of each country. Since 2015, the Group has also been an active member of the ILO Global Business and Disability Network, the branch of the International Labour Organization dedicated to disability issues, and shares its good practices.
In 2018, L’Oréal had 1,177 disabled employees.
In autumn 2018, the Group was recognised by Thomson Reuters as one of the ten best-performing companies on Diversity and Inclusion, among more than 7,000 businesses assessed.
The Group also celebrated the tenth edition of the DisAbility Awards, which recognised internal initiatives focused not only on employees, but also on consumers, as well as the most vulnerable communities.
