In 2017, each “Learning Week” day was devoted to promoting one of Saint-Gobain’s five Attitudes, which define employees’ expertise: “Cultivate customer intimacy,” “Act as an entrepreneur,” “Innovate,” “Be agile” and “Build an open and engaging culture.” More than 30 webcasts were hosted live. The subjects addressed ranged from big data to research and development at Saint-Gobain, as well as trust management and using Twitter and LinkedIn for learning. In all, more than 3,000 employees watched these presentations on their PC, tablet, or even their smartphone.
Many Saint-Gobain sites also organized activities, such as virtual reality workshops, courses in video production on a smartphone, and even site tours.
A video challenge based on the model of the “Ice Bucket Challenge” was taken up by some 30 employees. The aim was for each to create a video explaining a subject in which he or she has particular expertise and/or interest and to name three other colleagues to do likewise. The videos were published on the Saint-Gobain corporate social network and on external social networks.
Preparation for the 2018 Learning Week is already underway, with the added innovation of a mobile app to make it easier to register for all the events, either on-site or remotely. This is an opportunity to involve a maximum number of employees in order to encourage innovation and a learning culture at Saint-Gobain.
