LVMH named most attractive employer by French students

For the 12th consecutive year, LVMH has scooped first place in Universum’s ranking, while L’Oréal Group came in third

LVMH has been named the most attractive employer among French business and management students.

The fashion and cosmetics company – which owns Benefit and Guerlain among other well-known beauty brands – ranked in first place in Universum’s 2017 Most Attractive Employers list for the twelfth year in a row.

The ranking is based on the opinions of more than 40,000 students, who were asked to outline their career objectives, lifestyles and aspirations, and select the employer they believe presents them with the best match for their preferences.

LVMH increased its lead over the next companies in the ranking with 22.4% of the votes by future managers, compared with 21.69% in 2016.

Chantal Gaemperle, LVMH Group Executive Vice President, Human Resources and Synergies, said: “We are both delighted and proud to once again receive this mark of confidence from students.

“This recognition will continue to motivate us, as always, to strive for excellence and remain faithful to our promise of a stimulating work environment with international perspectives, anchored in the compelling values of innovation, creativity and entrepreneurial spirit.”

In second place was Google, while L’Oréal Group came in third, Chanel in fourth and Apple in fifth.

L’Oréal’s Employer Branding Director Carole Pasco-Domergue said: “If L’Oréal continues to stay ahead of the game, it’s because it combines solidity and innovation.

“The group is at the cutting edge of Beauty Tech, is a pioneer of ‘Social Beauty’ and empowers its employees to invent the future of beauty.”
