This year, Saint-Gobain was again awarded the “Top Employer Global” certification for the sixth consecutive year. Only 16 organizations in the world have received this distinction.
The examination by the Top Employers Institute is based on a questionnaire for each country, covering more than 400 practices relating to working conditions, which are audited and then validated.
These HR practices are grouped into 6 separate categories: Steer and Shape (these two domains explore the overarching strategies from the employer’s perspective), Attract, Develop and Engage (these three domains cover the employee journey), and finally, Unite (captures the topics that bring employees together and create a sense of belonging with the organisation).
The Top Employer label rewards the best global companies by examining aspects including the organization’s HR and career development processes in each of its countries. It is a label awarded locally by country, then by region and finally, by accumulation, at a global level.
Saint-Gobain designs, manufactures and distributes materials and solutions for the construction, mobility, healthcare and other industrial application markets. Developed through a continuous innovation process, they can be found everywhere in our living places and daily life, providing wellbeing, performance and safety, while addressing the challenges of sustainable construction, resource efficiency and the fight against climate change. This strategy of responsible growth is guided by the Saint-Gobain purpose, “MAKING THE WORLD A BETTER HOME”, which responds to the shared ambition of all the women and men in the Group to act every day to make the world a more beautiful and sustainable place to live in.
