THE WHAT? LVMH has accelerated a CSR program aimed at providing training and access to employment for younger generations. With its Craft the Future action plan, by 2022’s close, the luxury goods conglomerate aims to recruit 25,000 people under the age of 30, including 5,000 through internships or apprenticeships.
THE DETAILS To support this goal, the owner of Louis Vuitton is opening up access to its educational platform for all young people around the world, regardless of background or training to enable them to learn more about various roles and prepare for roles in the luxury industry. The platform also offers a training program with certification available to those who complete the free 30 hours of content.
THE WHY? Chantal Gaemperle, Director of Human Resources and Synergies, LVMH explains, “For the past 16 years, LVMH has stood as the most attractive company for business school students in the Universum France ranking. At a time when the COVID-19 crisis has particularly affected the younger generations and impacted their employability, LVMH intends to accompany and support them in a concrete way to build their careers. This is the purpose of our Craft the Future action plan. Beyond the recruitment figures, it is essential for the Group to commit to the employability of young people by improving the visibility and knowledge of our expert trades.”
