L’Oréal USA has revealed its plans to open a second company headquartered in El Segundo, California, in early 2022.
“We are fortunate to be in a position to invest in the expansion and future of our business,” said Stéphane Rinderknech, President & CEO of L’Oréal USA.
The move to open a second headquarters comes as the company seeks to bring together the teams from its California-based brands – NYX Professional Makeup, Urban Decay and Pulp Riot, currently based in three different locations. The second headquarters will also house L’Oréal’s first-ever west coast-based Professional Products Academy, which aims to grow, inspire and develop salon partners and beauty artists.
“California has become a global stage for creativity, innovation, trends, diversity and talent in the beauty industry – and, as a result, it has become a driving force of our business. We are excited at the prospect of our brand teams coming together to build the future of beauty in the Los Angeles area,” said Rinderknecht.
The new space features over 100,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor workspaces and it has been developed by Los Angeles landlord Hackman Capital Partners and interior design studio Blitz.
At the new headquarter location, L’Oréal employees can expect amenities such as dedicated networking and collaboration spaces, an indoor-outdoor work concept with expansive outdoor patios, a wellness and exercise studio, a company store featuring products across its portfolio of brands and an abundance of natural light coming in from the building’s 45-foot ceilings.
All spaces through the workspace have been developed with employee health and wellness at top of mind. The company also plans to implement its new hybrid working model at the new location, allowing eligible employees to work from home two days per week, enabling them to move seamlessly between working from the office and remotely.
