Saint-Gobain: Top Employer France for the fifth consecutive year

February 08 2017

The Top Employer Institute has awarded the Saint-Gobain group “Top Employer France” certification for the quality of its human resources policy, for the fifth year in a row. 

The Top Employer Institute awards the certification to a panel of leading businesses following an independent evaluation of HR practices based on the following criteria: talent management strategy, workforce planning, on-boarding, learning & development, performance management, leadership development, career and succession management, compensation & benefits and corporate culture. Overall, more than 600 practices and indicators of working conditions are examined and audited. 

This year, Saint-Gobain scored particularly well for: 

The consistency of its Human Resources strategy and the Group’s overall strategy;

The diverse range of training and development tools made available to employees, and the variety of career paths;

The working conditions the Group offers its employees in terms of working environment, equipment, prevention, safety and well-being at work. 

81%* of Group employees are proud to work for Saint-Gobain.  

*result from a satisfaction survey carried out at the end of 2015. This is 12 points higher than the Ipsos benchmark in France.
