As a socially responsible company that creates jobs, Hermès is deeply rooted in the regions, and committed to the communities, in which it operates. Hermès is committed to keeping most of its production in France at its own factories. The Group’s vertical integration model ensures the traceability of its entire supply chain, guaranteeing the quality of its creations.
Hermès opened 11 leather workshops, bringing to more than 4,700 the number of saddler-leatherworkers (sellier-maroquinier) within the group.
The Ecole Hermès des savoir-faire
Dedicated to the passing-on of know-how and the demand for quality, this new corporate CFA (apprentice training center) is designed to train a wide range of people in leather trades, and to enhance their skills by obtaining a diploma recognized by the French Ministry of Education.
Hermès, a responsible corporate citizen, is thus pursuing the long-term development of its sustainable and responsible growth model.
A creator, artisan, and seller of high-quality objects since 1837, Hermès is an independent, family-owned French house.
Driven by a spirit of continuous entrepreneurship and high standards, Hermès cultivates its employees’ freedom and independence with responsible management.
The company perpetuates the passing-on of exceptional know-how through a strong regional presence that respects people and nature. Sixteen artisanal trades feed the creativity of the company, whose collections are presented in over 300 stores around the world.
At Hermès, more than 19,700 people around the world, including nearly 12,400 in France, work to create “beautiful objects in beautiful spaces” in a harmonious, environmentally friendly setting. The company is open to a wide range of profiles. Hermès seeks out women and men with a spirit of curiosity, a sense of teamwork, and a commitment to quality. Our management style is based on trust, which fosters team spirit and lifelong learning.
A digital pioneer in its industry with the launch of its first e-commerce site in the United States as early as 2001, Hermès is constantly seeking to innovate for this digital flagship, which is now positioned among the Group’s leading stores. In a spirit of creativity, authenticity, and diversity, it brings together distance selling, services, and original content around the history and news of the house.
