EDUCATION: Empowering potential

It is crucial for our expansion and long-term success that we find and develop young talent to take us forward and develop the luxury online industry.

We recognise the key role that our people play in our success and we defined developing talent as one of our priorities in our Five Year Plan. It is important that we continue to attract and retain the best talent in the industry and build an ecosystem of innovation.

We have made a significant contribution to developing talent in our industry and we will continue to invest the wider talent pool.

We are committed in investing in education for young people. We will continue to invest in digital education, developing the skills necessary for a thriving digital economy, creating a large and diverse talent pool from which our industry and wider communities will prosper.

YNAP is a member of the European Commission’s Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition, set up to provide training for digital jobs to 1 million young people by 2020.

EMPOWERING WOMEN: UNLOCKING AMBITIONS

YNAP supports and promotes equality for women. We are proud of our ability to build a global workforce that empowers women leaders. We believe that empowering women and closing the gender pay gap is not only the right thing to do, but it’s a key business priority.

We are at the forefront of developments and contribute to the global dialogue on gender parity led by the UN Women Global Equal Pay coalition and the Equal Pay Pledge White House led initiative in the US under the Obama administration.

We believe that women are key to forging a better world and we celebrate inspiring women through our world-leading editorial content, partnerships and business initiatives.
