Clichy, 27 April 2016
 - Two years after it was launched, the "L’Oréal Share & Care" programme provides employees in the 67 countries with a universal set of social benefits. Over 100 initiatives have also been set up by subsidiaries, making L'Oréal, in each of the countries, one of the leading employers in terms of social policy.

This set of social protections addresses the essential needs of employees in four areas: health, welfare, parenthood and quality of life at work. Some of the main measures include:
- At least twenty-four months paid in the event of death or permanent incapacity 
- An access to major treatments with a reimbursement of at least 75% of related costs
- A minimum paternity leave of 3 days paid at 100% of the salary
- A minimum maternity leave of 14 weeks paid at 100% of the salary

Over a hundred local initiatives 

The programme goes even further, with the implementation of local initiatives at each subsidiary, such as:
- Medical insurance for parents of employees in Pakistan 
- Ten days fully-paid paternity leave in the United States
- Medical visits for children of employees in Peru 
- Financial contributions towards the education of children of employees in Spain 
- Spaces dedicated to mothers in Malaysia or Dubai.

"Our objective is to position L’Oréal as one of the most responsible employers in each country, with the same minimum social protection for all our employees, but also a very localized set of measures, responding to local legislation, culture, and the needs of employees," specified Jérôme Tixier, Executive Vice-President Human Resources and Advisor to the Chairman of L’Oréal. 

The L’Oréal Share & Care programme has attracted the attention of the International Labour Organization, within the framework of its study into the contribution of large businesses in the development of social protection throughout the world. L’Oréal is a founding member of the "Global Business Network for Social Protection Floors", a network of companies set up by the ILO.
