Thomson Reuters has listed L’Oréal as one of the 20 most inclusive employers in the world, after evaluating its track record of hiring people from diverse socio-demographic regions and backgrounds, people with disabilities, and women.
The cosmetics firm says that this is the result of ten years' effort in its ‘Diversity & Inclusion strategy’.
“Diversity & Inclusion supports the L’Oréal global mission of beauty for all. We have been adamant in our position to be transparent on our D&I indicators as a measure of accountability for our actions in the workplace and marketplace worldwide,” commented Jean-Claude Le Grand, senior vice-president for talent development and chief diversity officer at L’Oréal.
“To be ranked among the top 20 companies by Thomson Reuters’ Diversity and Inclusion Index is inspirational. It is an acknowledgement of the work that we have done, and a challenge to go further.”
Over 5,000 companies were assessed by Reuters for the index.
