Saint-Gobain one of eight companies worldwide named Top Employer Global 2016
Saint-Gobain was recently awarded “Top Employer Global 2016” certification by the Top Employers Institute, an independent body that studies corporate human resources practices.
Saint-Gobain scored very well in talent management and skills development and its corporate culture, rooted in strong values forming the foundation of its Corporate Social Responsibility policy, contributed to their success.
“Top Employer certification is part of our open and continuous improvement approach. The audit enables us to identify innovative human resources practices outside the company and to discuss our short- and long-term challenges. The label also strengthens our employer brand,” says Claire Pedini, Senior Vice President in charge of Human Resources, Saint-Gobain.
Six hundred practices and indicators regarding working conditions were approved and audited for each of the 21 countries which were certified and where Saint-Gobain is present.
This illustrates the strength and cohesion of the Group’s human resources policy at an international level, a policy that has four key priorities: professional mobility, team diversity, employee commitment and the development of talent.
