Supporting Our People
Training and Development
Avon offers opportunity for training and development to help Team Members build a strong foundation for individual and company success, and to ensure our Team Members are meeting the demands of the changing labor market.
At the individual level, Team Members participate in mid-year and annual performance reviews that focus on sharing career aspirations, outlining performance and development goals, providing relevant feedback, and establishing action plans.
We offer training initiatives to Team Members that focus on necessary skills that affect the business. Trainings such as an “Immersion” series of workshops and webinars on the fundamentals of the Avon business educate Team Members on direct selling, commercial marketing, supply chain and finance basics. We also provide tuition reimbursement to Team Members who are pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in a job-related field or in a field that has been approved by the Team Member’s manager and human resources.
Team Member Engagement and Events
We host events that connect senior management with Team Members for the purposes of delivering updates on business strategy and initiatives, eliciting Team Member feedback and facilitating cross-functional dialogue.
Avon has an Intranet site that is available to all Team Members, as well as market Intranet sites with information relevant to local Team Members, including written and video messages from senior leaders.
Avon hosts fun events throughout the year including Take Our Children to Work Day, pizza parties and wellness activities.
Health & Safety
Avon is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for Associates, contract employees and visitors.
As a North American company, we work to ensure all of our sites meet regulatory safety standards. We have established stringent internal safety requirements to ensure consistency in safety processes across our North American operations.
The foundation of our health and safety programs at individual sites is ensured through compliance with local regulations, and by conducting risk assessments of tasks performed; developing safe operating procedures; and providing new hire safety orientations, job training, and training for specific topics, such as ergonomics, electrical and chemical safety, among others.
To recruit and retain a competitive talent pool, Avon provides comprehensive benefits and compensation packages for our Associates around North America.
When the very first Avon Representatives began selling their products 130 years ago, the term “working mother” had not yet entered the national lexicon. At that time, the opportunities available for a woman who wanted to work outside the home were limited, even more so if that woman was a mother. But decades before the rest of the world caught up, Avon’s business model was defining what it meant to be a working mother and paving the way for generations to come. This legacy remains at the heart of the company’s mission, and one that was recognized by Forbes magazine, as Avon earned a spot on its 2018 “100 Best Employers for Women” list.
