PARIS — L’Oréal said its Share & Care universal social-benefits program has now been deployed to its employees in 67 countries.

Further, more than 100 related initiatives were started by company subsidiaries, making L’Oréal a leading employer in regards to social policy, it said.

Share & Care, launched in 2013, aims to guarantee for all of its employees best social practice in welfare, health, parenting and quality of life at work. Some specific measures include at least 24 months paid in the circumstance of death or permanent incapacity and access to major health treatments with a minimum reimbursement of 75 percent of related costs.

On the local levels, some of the program’s initiatives include medical insurance for parents of employees in Pakistan and 10 days of fully paid paternity leave in the United States.

“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,” stated Jérome Tixier, executive vice president of human resources and advisor to the chairman of L’Oréal, Jean-Paul Agon.
