L’OCCITANE Commits to the Employment of People with Disabilities

With an employment rate of people with disabilities superior to the average in France, L'Occitane supports access to work for all.

In this National Week for the Employment of People with Disabilities (November 18 to 24), let’s remember that there are two ways to support these workers’ professional activity. On the one hand by recruiting directly, and secondly by calling on ESAT, a French disability employment service program. L’OCCITANE, whose employment rate of disabled people reached 7.46% last year, uses both methods.

Since 2010 and the signing of an agreement between the Provencal company and Agefiph, an association that supports companies wishing to work with disabled workers, L'OCCITANE does not hesitate to call on ESAT to subcontract certain tasks, especially during the Christmas period. Ten thousand L'OCCITANE gift sets and are prepared entirely by disabled workers attached to the ESAT Paris region. 


But since 2012, L’OCCITANE goes a step further in its commitment to work for all and welcomes within its logistics teams a group of disabled workers, also responsible for preparing the Christmas gift boxes and more generally for its packaging operations. A collaboration that has proven its worth, and that L’OCCITANE intends to see continue.
