PROMOTING LOCAL EMPLOYMENT AND EQUALITY
LOOK remains true to its roots. Our products are not only designed, but also manufactured, in France.
More than 98% of our pedal production is carried out by our employees in our historic factory in Nevers, Burgundy.
This also allows us to develop the local economy and optimize transportation.
This subject is of the utmost importance within LOOK Cycle. For this reason, we measure the efforts made by the group every year using the Gender Equality Index. This index allows us to measure our commitment on the basis of official criteria issued by the Ministry of Labor, Employment and Integration in order to identify areas for improvement and to continue to take concrete action in favor of this equality.
With a score of 75 points out of 100, we continue to demonstrate our commitment to gender equality, which is an integral part of our corporate strategy and culture.
OPTIMAL WORKING CONDITIONS
Our teams have developed unrivalled carbon expertise over the years and are at the very core of what makes LOOK unique. The safety of these employees is also one of our main concerns. We constantly monitor the chemical risks on our production sites, particularly those related to the handling of carbon, and all substances used in production are certified non-hazardous and carefully regulated.
More generally, we pay particular attention to the safety of our employees, by regularly renovating buildings, appointing safety managers at each of our industrial sites and by maintaining a close relationship with the occupational health department to ensure their health and well-being.
We are proud of these commitments, which resulted in 2020 in a work-related accident rate of 1.40%, well below the industry average.
We support our employees in their professional development through training programs, in particular the Validation of Acquired Experience.
As an industrial company, we also encourage our employees to engage in sporting activities and provide loan bicycles for them to use whenever they wish.
