Now in its 15th year, the competition drew 207 project submissions. This year’s awards highlighted exceptional projects from all Global Operations teams across the Group based on nine categories: Customer Satisfaction, Service Improvement, Society, People Development, Safety & Working conditions, Eco Responsible, Cost Competitiveness, New Products & Services and Innovation. In addition to the 9 categories, there is the “Coup de Coeur” vote, which rewards the project that has garnered the most likes in an open vote for employees.
The Global Operations Awards aim to recognize team contribution to Essilor Group Global Operations priorities. The awards reflect our innovation DNA and shine a light on new ideas which can be implemented by local people from the ground, with the aim of inspiring replication around the Group.
