H³ – Head, Heart, Hand

Hermès staff’s initiatives for social solidarity and skills transmission

Heart - Head - Hand = H³, the equation behind a call for projects from the Fondation entreprise Hermès to all staff at the house of Hermès, aimed at bringing new solidarity initiatives around the world to the Foundation’s attention. Nineteen new projects were selected for support over a two-year period, until 2015.

H³ is an internal call for projects aimed at Hermès staff, reflecting the Foundation’s commitment to promote the value of artisan skills and know-how through professional training, and/or the preservation of biodiversity. Hermès staff who already volunteer with a public-interest organisation in the Foundation’s areas of interest are invited to submit a proposal for support.

The first round produced a list of nineteen projects selected for the Foundation’s support in 2014 and 2015, from a total of 64 proposals submitted, reflecting the strong commitment to not-for-profit initiatives shown by Hermès house staff around the world.

Covering every continent, H³ projects are individually managed by Hermès staff ‘ambassadors’, acting as the interface between their chosen not-for-profit organisation and the Foundation in Paris, and encouraging in-house teams to mobilise in support of the project.

The projects selected for H³ are steered by established, expert entities implementing innovative approaches, and reflecting the core values of the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès: the transmission of skills and know-how to underprivileged communities, help for young people from vulnerable backgrounds to discover new trades, professional training for participants with special needs, the preservation of artisan techniques adapted to local ecosystems. The Fondation d’entreprise Hermès is delighted to support these not-for-profit organisations, bringing their work to a wider, international public.
