On June 20th, L’Oréal USA employees supported volunteer projects across 11 states as part of L’Oréal USA’s annual Volunteer Day. More than 3500 employees worked with 190 local charitable organizations and contributed over 17,000 service hours to non-profit and regional organizations that align with L’Oréal’s corporate social missions of promoting sustainability, advancing science and providing beauty for all.
L’Oréal USA recognizes the important role that charitable organizations play in our communities, and has implemented multiple programs to encourage charitable actions across the organization throughout the year. “As one of the largest beauty companies in the world, L’Oréal has a responsibility to use our scale for good and make a positive impact on our communities, environment and society,” said Frédéric Rozé, President & Chief Executive Officer of L’Oréal USA. “I’m proud to be able to encourage and empower our colleagues to give back to the communities in which we live and work.”
Through its “L’Oréal Gives Back” program, employees are given the opportunity to donate to their preferred charities, organize peer-to-peer fundraising initiatives within the employee community and apply for a dollar-for-dollar company match. In addition to L’Oréal USA’s Annual Volunteer Day, every employee is provided eight hours of company time to volunteer throughout the year with an organization of their choice.
Volunteer Day is an extension of L’Oréal’s Annual Global Citizen Day initiative, which is the company’s ongoing effort to support communities worldwide. Created in 2010, the annual Citizen Day has enabled employees from nearly 65 countries to offer more than one million cumulative volunteer hours to hundreds of non-profit organizations and their beneficiaries.
Every year for the past 10 years, nearly 30,000 L’Oréal employees participate in volunteer activities tied to Citizen Day. The yearly initiative embodies the Group’s commitment to contribute positively to the ecosystems and communities in which it operates.
