Métiers d Excellence, an annual vocational training fair allowing students to learn about apprenticeships in these professions, offered more than 400 work-linked training positions with 39 Group Maisons and 21 partner schools and universities. LVMH s Institut des Métiers d Excellence (IME) confirmed its extraordinary growth trajectory, wel- coming its largest class of students since it was estab- lished, with 339 new apprentices in six countries (France, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Japan and Germany). Since 2014, more than 1,400 apprentices have been trained in 27 pro- fessions by the IME.
Supporting younger generations and people undergoing retraining alike
Crafting the future means lending support to younger generations as they face challenging economic conditions. LVMH has boosted its initiatives and programs aimed at this group, announcing in particular that it would be hiring 25,000 people under 30 around the world by the end of 2022. In parallel, the Group has continued to provide practical guidance to young people as they build their career plans. One prominent example of this commitment is INSIDE LVMH, which offers students from all over the world a platform aimed at expanding their knowledge of the luxury industry and providing additional training to help them prepare for their careers. It features 50 hours of original content presented by luxury industry experts, along with a 30-hour certification program with exclusive content. More than 43,000 young people have already registered on the platform, half of whom took part in the certification program. LVMH continues to have a very strong appeal among young people. For the 16th consecutive year, the Group topped the Universum ranking of preferred employers among business school students in France. The Group is also very highly rated and on the rise in international rankings. LVMH is also taking action to improve access to employ- ment for adults over the age of 25 through the LIVE (L Institut des Vocations pour l Emploi) training program.
Launched in September 2019 by Brigitte Macron and LVMH, LIVE now has three locations: Clichy-sous-Bois, Valence (in the southeast of France) and Roubaix, on the Jean Arnault Campus, which was inaugurated in 2021. More than 200 people have already taken advantage of the support offered by this program to develop their career plans, and over 75% of them have successfully found a job, begun training or started a business following their experience at LIVE. The start of the 2021 academic year in September saw the arrival of 180 new learners at the three LIVE campuses for a six-month program.
Building our future together
The success of our Maisons is built on our longstanding belief that our people make all the difference. Recent graduates, employees, managers and senior executives: they are all our greatest assets our lifeblood. In a world in constant flux, where many jobs have drasti- cally transformed from how they were several years ago, with some new roles not even existing before, being able to identify, attract and retain top talent within LVMH is key. The Group s new Craft the Future employer brand reflects this ambition, with thousands of in-house ambas- sadors trained and a new social media campaign unveiled this past December. As a rapidly growing group, we also see being able to share information in real time and strengthening LVMH s corporate culture as key priorities. That s why the LVMH Group has launched a new global intranet called Voices, aimed at all 175,000 of our employees around the world. It serves as a single platform for all the Group s com- munication needs, and also allows information to be reported and fed back by its different Maisons, regions and professions. Together we will craft the future of LVMH: a future that is inextricably linked to the world in which we live and operate; a world that is more respectful of nature and of those who live in it. This is our roadmap for the year ahead and beyond.
