THE WHAT? L’Oréal USA has announced that it will be opening a second company headquarters in California in early 2022.
THE DETAILS The Group’s largest subsidiary’s new location will bring together the teams from its California-based brands, NYX Professional Makeup, Urban Decay and Pulp Riot, which are currently based across three different sites.
The second headquarters will also house L’Oréal’s first west coast-based Professional Products Academy and be designed to the highest sustainability standards on a 25-acre park-like campus transformed from a former aerospace manufacturing site.
Built to house L’Oréal USA’s new hybrid working model, the office space will enable employees to move seamlessly between in-office and remote work and developed with employee health and wellness in mind, featuring dedicated networking and collaboration spaces, an indoor-outdoor work concept with expansive patios and a wellness and exercise studio.
THE WHY? Stéphane Rinderknech, President & CEO of L’Oréal USA explains, “We are fortunate to be in a position to invest in the expansion and future of our business. California has become a global stage for creativity, innovation, trends, diversity and talent in the beauty industry – and, as a result, it has become a driving force of our business. We are excited at the prospect of our brand teams coming together to build the future of beauty in the Los Angeles area.”
