What Estee Lauder Companies Leadership has to Say
“We recognize that all employees are different, their needs are different, their work-life balance is different,” Latricia Parker, executive director of global benefits of The Estée Lauder Companies, told Employee Benefits News, “and we want to give our employees choices that allow them to pick the benefit that works best for them wherever they may be in life — whether they are starting or growing a family, taking care of a loved one or investing in their career growth and development.”
“Family is important to us,” added Estee Lauder Executive Vice President, Global Human Resources Michael O’Hare. “We believe providing an abundance of options to our employees will help them thrive inside and outside of work.”
