Business World

India has emerged as a talent hub for L’Oreal. In fact, the country has the potential to be ranked among the top three talent markets for the global beauty giant. 

Speaking to a media outlet L’Oreal global VP talent acquisition, Michael Kienle, said, “We have very talented Indians already in the organization. India is likely to be among the top three talent hubs for the L’Oreal Group in the years to come. We will potentialize and leverage India as a talent hub for the group even more in the years to come.” 

The elevation of Vismay Sharma as president – South Asia-Pacific, Middle East & North Africa (SAPMENA) and Asmita Dubey as chief digital & marketing officer in recent years is said to have set the ball rolling. The promotions come as L’Oreal looks to prioritize development of Indian talent. About 180 (3%) of L’Oreal’s key positions (including strategic, global, and local key positions) are held by Indians. 

While the US and China are big purely in terms of recruitment numbers and the size of the business, L’Oreal India plans to bring new product divisions here, in addition to the existing consumer products division, professional products division and luxury. This is expected to increase its requirements in terms of recruitments reports The Times of India.
