L’Oréal exec who stays motivated after working at the company for 30 years


Vismay Sharma, president of L’Oreal SAPMENA, loves his job even after 30 years in the same company. Here’s how he stays motivated.

Vismay Sharma, president of L’Oreal‘s South Asia Pacific, Middle East and North Africa market — dubbed SAPMENA — has worked at the same company for more than 30 years and still enjoys his work.

How does he stay motivated? Sharma says that finding purpose is key.

“I love working in the beauty industry. It’s an industry that brings joy, self-confidence and wellbeing into people’s lives on a daily basis,” he told CNBC’s My Biggest Lessons.

Sharma added that while turnover, profitability and market share are important concerns for any organization, the “real long-term motivator” for him is seeing the value in his day-to-day work.

One of the most rewarding aspects of his work is the potential to positively impact communities and the environment, such as creating employment opportunities and reducing water consumption in salons that are in water-scarce regions.
