Culture and Values

We are Prestige Beauty. It’s in our DNA.

The Estée Lauder Companies is led by the legacy of Mrs. Estee Lauder, the iconic and original influencer. Through personal strength and perseverance, Estée became a true catalyst of change by following her dream. We continue to build and expand within our house of beauty. Surrounded by a collaborative and compassionate environment, we challenge ourselves to push the boundaries, inventing the unexpected and delivering trust and innovation in everything we create.

“The company operates like a family with strong values," says Fabrizio Freda, President and CEO, "And a family is, in fact, the most caring and demanding of environments for both personal and professional growth. Our culture is respectful of our roots; it continues to inspire and is full of aspirations for the opportunities of tomorrow.”

We continuously express our gratitude for the past and are creating a new energy for the future.

  • Nurturing and developing world-class talent. Continuous learning happens throughout the organization, to identify and harness the strengths of our talented employees, while encouraging leadership.

Embracing diversity helps sharpen our focus on cultural relevance and respect — ensuring that our products, messaging and in-store and online experiences reflect the aspirations and desires of new and loyal consumers.
  • Caring for the communities we serve through sustainable sourcing practices, efficient operations, green chemistry and bringing attention and resources to global causes that focus on health, the environment, education and social awareness.
