For the first time, Printemps is included in Les Echos and Statista's Leaders in Innovation ranking. This ranking highlights innovation made in France through 200 French companies - start-ups, unicorns or well-established ETIs - that have transformation in their DNA.

The digital/high-tech sector naturally represents 25% of the companies, but the specificity of the ranking is also to value organizational innovations, the encouragement of creativity and risk-taking in-house, and the implementation of new processes. These points are evaluated by questionnaires sent both to employees and to in-house innovation experts.

The award recognizes the culture of innovation that has been part of Printemps' heritage since the company was founded, and which continues to this day. With significant risk-taking from the outset and numerous “firsts” throughout its history, such as the first public buildings to be equipped with electricity or the first elevators, which have helped the company evolve. Even today, thanks to the many initiatives launched by the Group in recent years - Live shopping, the first virtual department store, the digital fashion collection, NFT offered to customers - Printemps continues to stand out from the crowd by continuing to integrate innovation into all our actions and reconfirming our identity.
