LVMH is a decentralized organisation, growing, evolving and constantly acquiring new businesses. The core values of the company are "being creative and innovative", "aiming for product excellence", "promoting our brands with passion", and "acting as entrepreneurship and striving to be the best in all we do" As LVMH is French company with all its main offices and headquarter in France but yet the management of company is multi-culture.

What are the strengths and weaknesses of their system and provide recommendations to LVMH board of Directors on how to improve its strategy towards T&D of its staff management. Training and Development Training is the process of "altering employee behaviour and attitudes in a way that increase the probability of goal attainment" [1] or we can define training as "the formal and systematic modification of behaviour through learning which occurs as a result of education, instruction, development and planned experience" [2]. Development is "any learning activity which is directed toward future needs rather than present needs, and which is concerned more with growth than immediate performance" [2]. How LVMH ensure their employees T & D To ensure their employees skill development and equipped them with latest skills and knowledge of management LVMH has a variety of training and development programs. The main focus of all these activities is on to prepare their employees to meet the high market challenges and to ensure the achievement of their organisational goals and objectives through proper utilization of human resources. Following are the key approaches which LVMH use for their employees training and development. * International Mobility * Career Management (Organisational Management Review OMR) * Inter Cultural training International Mobility At LVMH international mobility is an activity for gaining high career mile stones, and develop manager to take the global management positions and enable them to work at a multi cultural and out of their home countries. International mobility is likely to entail a radical functional move. Through international mobility the managers are put into new situations to help them develop new skills and prove their courage.

As LVMH is a global giant doing operation in different countries with a group of 50 companies and 450 subsidiaries, they have very good approach to manage their employees all over the world, and ensure the personal and professional growth throw different activities arranged by the HR department of LVMH. After studying the case study there are some HR activities and operations which can be make much more influential in achieving the organizational goals and objectives. * The HR department may start management courses for their middle level and primary level management team, to ensure their growth to take over the future top level management positions * Employees ready for international mobility should be given proper training before they go on assignment, though LVMH provide some pre departure and post arrival training but it is needed to have a very structured training program which provide complete knowledge and information on how to work as expatriate. * The process of inter-cultural training has much more potential, so the training should be extended to subsidiaries level to make a pool of employees aware of the different cultural values and available for any cross cultural assignments. * LVMH needs extend their recruitment and selection process not just to those countries where the company is in operation, to global recruitment and selection in order to get a big pool of potential candidates from all over the world and then select the appropriate individuals on the basis of merit which best suit the organizational goals and strategy. ...read more.
