For the fourth year running, L’Oréal has been ranked among the 380 companies of the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index 2021 (GEI).
The index evaluates and highlights companies that have distinguished themselves by their proactive approach to gender equality in the workplace, including in terms of female leadership, talent flows, salary parity, inclusion culture and gender assault policies.
The Bloomberg recognition reinforces the group’s attractiveness to both candidates and investors, at a time where transparency in corporate governance plays a key role.
Jean-Claude Le Grand, executive vice president of human resources for L’Oréal, said L’Oréal has a long-standing commitment to gender equality and a firm conviction that it is a strategic lever to increase wellbeing at work, fuel creativity and innovation, and boost performance and growth.
In 2019, women represented 54 percent of the board of directors, 30 percent of the executive committee and 54 percent of the company’s key positions.
Le Grand said that the company is committed to maintain a high gender equality standard subject to regular audit certifications.
Since 2011, L’Oréal has worked with two independent organizations, EDGE (Economic Dividends for Gender Equality) and GEEIS (Gender Equality European and International Standard), to conduct in-depth, rigorous audits of current staff and hiring policies for many of its subsidiaries.
Here in Mexico, where L’Oréal has been present for more than 58 years, the company includes 25 brands in four divisions, and their sales represent the third-largest market for the company in the Americas, after the United States and Brazil.
