was awarded the Grand Prix at the 13th edition of the French Grand Prix FAS (French Federation of Associations of Employee and Former Employee Shareholders). The FAS recognized Essilor for its exemplary approach to promoting employee shareholding across its organization. The move follows Essilor’s recent announcement that employee shareholding worldwide surpassed 50 percent, exceeding the company’s goal of 35 percent that had initially been set for 2020. “I would like to dedicate this prize to the more than 35,000 Essilor employees who own shares in the company. Active employee shareholding plays a central role in our governance model.
It reinforces our employees’ sense of commitment to the Group’s mission, which guides our strategy, and aligns their long-term interests with those of the company through a shared ambition for a successful business. Active employee ownership also widens our responsibility to keep pursuing our fight against poor vision around the world. Looking ahead, Essilor’s aim is to continue strengthening the Group’s shareholding culture among all its employees across the world,” commented Hubert Sagnieres, chairman and CEO of Essilor International.
