The Colbert Committee mobilizes against the lack of manpower

From December 10 to 12, the Colbert Committee, supported by some twenty luxury companies, is organizing an event called LES DE(UX) MAINS DU LUXE at Station F. During the three-day event, the public will be able to discover a wide range of skills and training. The aim is to highlight these professions and encourage people to take up these professions.


The Colbert Committee is an association that brings together 115 members, 92 luxury companies such as Baccarat, Chanel, Lenôtre and many others and 17 cultural institutions. Frequently presented as the French lobby of the luxury sector, it wishes to set up an event to show the know-how and excellence of the luxury professions.


This prestigious industry, like many others, is indeed facing a real shortage of manpower in the art and production trades. Demand is growing, but the workforce is not keeping up. This unfortunately puts many unique and precious skills at risk.  According to a survey by the Colbert Committee, 85% of its companies are currently experiencing recruitment difficulties for production jobs. In France, more than 20,000 positions need to be filled: a colossal figure!
