Since 2007, Mission Handicap has been promoting LVMH s
ambition in terms of social and professional inclusion of
people with disabilities throughout the Group. Harnessing a
network of 40 disability champions in the various Maisons, Mission Handicap steers the Group s approach to raising
awareness among teams, encouraging recruitment and
maintaining employment of people with disabilities. The
subject is covered in mandatory anti-discrimination training
and discrimination test campaigns.
RECRUITMENT AND MAINTAINING EMPLOYMENT
LVMH encourages its Maisons to hire talented people,
whether disabled or non-disabled.
Between 2010 and 2019, the number of employees with disabilities increased as a proportion of the total workforce in
France, from 3.6% to 4.5%* (up 25%) calculated in accordance
with official independent standards (AGEFIPH) that combine the rates of direct and indirect employment. Internationally,
the Group has set itself a target of 2%.
The Group and its Maisons guarantee that workers who
declare their disability will receive the support they need to
enable them to continue doing their job. This could include
adapting their workstation or orienting toward a different
profession within the Group.
A number of initiatives were promoted by the Maisons
during the European Disability Employment Week held from
November 18th-24th, 2019, including facilitating part time work
for disabled employees (Berluti), encouraging remote work-
ing or adapting duties (Parfums Christian Dior) and raising
awareness among managers in recruitment (Chaumet).
SUPPORTING THE SHELTERED EMPLOYMENT SECTOR
The Maisons develop relations with the sheltered employ-
ment sector, an area of the economy that enables people
living with severe disabilities, whether permanently or
temporarily, to continue working in a suitably adapted envi-
ronment. As a result, the volume of services purchased from
this area of the economy grew 6% last year.
DRIVEN BY THE GROUP S MISSION HANDICAP, THE COMMITMENTS MADE
TO SUPPORT EMPLOYEES WITH DISABILITIES TRANSLATE INTO CONCRETE
ACTION IN RECRUITMENT, MAINTAINING EMPLOYMENT AND WORK WITH
THE SHELTERED EMPLOYMENT SECTOR.

100% of people working at MHEA live with a disability. MHEA is the sheltered workshop created by Moët & Chandon in 2011 that employs people with disabilities and maintains their wage conditions.
8.8 m of services purchased from the sheltered employment sector (up 6% from 2018). The volume of purchases represents 440 full-time equivalent employees (FTE).
4.5*% corresponds to the employment rate of people with disabilities in France, according to official statistics (combining the rates of direct and indirect employment). Globally, it is 1.0%.
