Our philosophy

A place for everyone

Essilor believes in the value of diverse cultures and profiles.

The group has a strong internal culture based on trust and respect, two values that are deeply embedded in the company’s DNA.
Involved in your development

We believe in internal mobility as a source of advancement, recognition and professional fulfillment. It allows everyone to enhance their skills and experience. It also encourages the dissemination of a strong corporate culture: essential for our future development.

We reject the notion of standardized careers and encourage all employees to play a proactive role in their development. Management is based on responsibility and trust. Trusting our employees gives them confidence in themselves and encourages their commitment.

We value initiative, the ability to promote your ideas, working as part of a team and developing your own interpersonal network.
Long-term skills management

Attracting and retaining the best talents to implement its long-term strategy is a key issue for an international group like Essilor.

At Essilor, we emphasize the skills, talents and qualities of our employees. This is essential in order to offer our employees fulfilling, interesting and varied careers, as well as to establish and develop our leadership all around the world.

In practical terms, this means support and an effective and exciting employee training policy.
Respect for individuals and diversity

Essilor believes in the value of diverse cultures and profiles.

We want everyone to find their role and feel comfortable within the company. Our employees’ commitment encourages teamwork and stimulating professional relationships.

Respecting diversity means allowing everyone to find their own place. Our diversity and the value we place on differences are strengths which enrich our human experience. They accompany our geographic expansion and our adaptation to local cultures. Essilor is therefore particularly attentive to promoting diversity, respect and has policies in place in some countries for example for the employment of disabled people and seniors.

Essilor also considers interns and VIE (Volunteers for International Experience) to be essential resources, as well as future employees who should receive real training within the company.
Employee shareholding, the cement binding the group

Since Essilor was founded over 160 years ago as a craftsmen’s cooperative,, employee shareholding has been anchored in our culture. Colleagues have always been encouraged to own shares in the group’s capital and today, nearly one in four employee is an Essilor shareholder.
