L’Oréal Ranked Among Top 20 Most Attractive Employers by U.S. Business Students Careers


New York, May 3, 2017 – U.S. business students named L’Oréal in the top 20 of the Universum "Most Attractive Employers” rankings. This annual talent attraction index compiles the results of a student survey taken between October 2016 and February of 2017 and represents the career and employer preferences from 81,102 U.S. students from 359 universities and 170 different areas of study. 

L’Oréal placed 17 out of 100 employers assessed by U.S. business students across criteria including work-life balance, creativity, stability and opportunities for leadership.

“We’re proud that business students in the U.S. recognize L’Oréal as an innovator across all areas of our business,” says Sumita Banerjee, SVP of Talent Acquisition for L’Oréal Americas.  “We have always been a place for exceptional talent to build their careers, be mentored by passionate leaders at the top of their game and take on leadership opportunities on an international stage.  We are always evolving and reinventing ourselves to offer a diversity of career paths for students entering the workplace, whether it be incubating consumer technology, leading the digital revolution or combining economic growth with sustainable development.”

This top ranking comes on the heels of the move of L’Oréal USA’s corporate headquarters to Hudson Yards in New York City. The connected workplace is designed to create an enhanced collaborative environment that reflects a culture focused on innovation, learning, growth and sustainability, signaling a new chapter for the world beauty leader and its portfolio of more than 30 iconic brands.
