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 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.
The 2021 Top Employer Global label was awarded to Saint-Gobain thanks to the company’s 36 countries that have currently been certified:
Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and United States.
Chile entered the ranking this year, meaning it could be included in the calculation for the award of the Top Employer certification in the Latin America region, in addition to the four other regions awarded: North America, Asia-Pacific, Europe and the Middle East.
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).
