We strive to create an environment empowered by unique perspectives and a spirit of curiosity, where each individual takes ownership to learn and thrive.
Our overarching ambition is to offer a caring, safe and inclusive work environment where our people never stop learning, and feel empowered to act and innovate. In order to achieve this as well as our overall business objectives, we are creating a more people-centric culture and focusing our efforts on the following three key areas:
- Providing lifelong learning to preserve craftsmanship and enhance the employability of our people
- Contributing to the overall well-being of our employees
- Promoting diversity and inclusion within our workforce
We have set three levels of commitments and targets to help us achieve our ambition. These range from short term commitments, which focus on maintaining a strong foundation, through to longer term commitments, which are more aspirational and seek to deliver transformational change. For more detail on these commitments, see our Sustainability Report 2020 (page 43).
Women's empowerment principles
In 2019, Cartier signed the Women's Empowerment Principles (WEPs), a set of guiding principles established by United Nations (UN) Global Compact and UN Women to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment in the workplace, marketplace and community. The WEPs are grounded in the recognition that businesses have a stake in, and a responsibility for gender equality and women’s empowerment.
Empowering women and helping them achieve their full potential has long been a Maison Cartier commitment, notably with the development of the worldwide Cartier Women’s Initiative Programme and Cartier Philanthropy.
By joining the WEPs community of over 3 000 companies, Maison Cartier signals its strong willingness to foster responsible business practices that empower women.
