  1. Multinational enterprises and social protection: A case study of the L’Oréal Share & Care Program​

    31 January 2019

    Recognizing the possible beneficial effects for workers and enterprises, many MNEs have undertaken or are currently planning to undertake programs to offer social protection to their employees, going beyond legal obligations. This is a voluntary effort by enterprises that falls under the CSR framework. In this regard, this paper analyses improvement in coverage due to the implementation of such a program, L’Oréal’s Share & Care, and explores the possible effects of the change in a large number of benefits on performance-related indicators. It is also the first attempt to examine the impact of a social program by a company participating in the Global Business Network.
