Nurturing talent

These Maisons draw their energy from their exceptional heritage, innovative mindset and receptive outlook. The Group supports their development in a spirit of entrepre- neurship, long-term vision and respect for the source of their strength and stature. As ambassadors of an authentic art de vivre, it is our responsibility to set the right example in every aspect of our business, from product design to the experience that customers have throughout their relationships with our brands; from investment choices to social and environ- mental initiatives. Because what we do requires a diverse range of talent, we are committed to training teams that embody excellence. Because passing on skills is an inte- gral part of our culture, we want to use that opportunity to promote social inclusion and employment. Because our crafts make the most of nature at its purest and most beautiful, we see preserving the environment as a strategic imperative. The values and actions encompassed by our sustainable development attitude emerge from a tradition that dates back to the origins of our Maisons and forms an integral part of our heritage. Our long-term success depends not only on the Group’s solid business model and profitable growth strategy, but also on our unwavering commitment to creativity, excellence, and our environmental impact and corporate citizenship.
