Growth & personal development

At L’Oréal learning is part of our culture and part of our everyday life. The world of beauty, with its dynamic and challenging markets, calls for intuition, creativity, flexibility and passion – and so the primary objective of our training programme is to develop talents: your talents! Right from your first steps at L’Oréal and at every stage of your career, your success and the Group’s success depend on your personal growth and development. Wherever you are, whatever your field of activity (marketing, production, finance, research, etc.), whatever your role, you will be constantly supported by our teams, who will provide you with the professional knowledge you require.

Develop your professional expertise

On the one hand your professional development will be taking place day by day, on an informal basis – yet this kind of development doesn’t happen of its own accord, which is why the Group is committed to providing you with an appropriate working environment and to training talented managers, trainers and coaches.

On the other hand we will provide you with training programmes, field visits and distance learning opportunities, constantly adapting the content of these programmes to your everyday professional needs. Your personal commitment to putting what you have learned in training into practice in your work is the key to making this a success.

And because everyone has different needs you’ll be provided with a training catalogue which outlines the courses we recommend at each stage of your career. These guidelines will help you select – in conjunction with your manager – the training that’s best for you. You’ll also have two formal appraisals with your manager every year when you can identify and discuss your strengths and your development needs.

Communicate with passion

Outstanding communication skills are vital at L’Oréal. Yes, it’s important to have good ideas – but it’s even more important to be able to defend them with passion and conviction. To help you do this we make sure that we offer the communications training you need: basic presentation techniques and personal effectiveness training, negotiating techniques, managing delicate and strategic situations with the media.

Your managerial qualities and your personal development

Fast-track career progression is eminently achievable at L’Oréal – and this means that you need to have access to the learning opportunities you need exactly when you need them: after all, our success depends on developing our leaders of the future. Our “Transition To” training programme will prepare you for the challenges of your next career step – supplemented with invaluable support from your manager.
