The Saint-Gobain Group has been certified as a Top Employer for India, Asia Pacific and Global 2022 by the Top Employers Institute, Netherlands.
Among the 20 criteria analyzed by the Top Employers Institute*, Saint-Gobain made significant progress this year on 17 of them, with 12 criteria showing an increase of 2% or more.
Certified as a Top Employer
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 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 organization).
It means understanding, anticipating and meeting the fundamental needs of both internal and external customers at all times and at all levels of the organization. With this attitude, Saint-Gobain people show a strong focus to meet customers’ needs while also being able to proactively provide creative solutions when necessary.
To do so, Saint-Gobain people need to develop their empathy, i.e. their ability to put themselves in the shoes of the customer and change their perspective to understand the fundamental needs of others.
Serving customers and markets by creating great living places and improving daily life demands the whole innovative potential of Saint-Gobain, and is one of the key objectives of the Group’s strategy. It is essential to ensure Saint-Gobain’s unique position in the market while perfectly understanding the evolving needs of the customers in a constantly changing environment.
Acting as an entrepreneur means being results-driven as if it was one’s own company. Acting as an entrepreneur means showing strong commitment and having a sense of ownership: all the projects on which you are working are yours. You make them successful through your personal initiative and drive. It also means having an impact and leaving your personal footprint on the results, performance and sustainability of Saint-Gobain. To do so, you need to have the courage to take risks and make decisions to advance the results and performance of the Group.
Finally acting as an entrepreneur relates to being an active part of change and showing enthusiasm for it.
Saint-Gobain is more than ever evolving in a changing business environment. While it is essential to stay true to our Principles of Conduct and Action, we also need to change our perspective on risk-taking and initiative. Acting as an internal entrepreneur within the Saint-Gobain Group is having the right mindset to align our strong values with the necessity to go forward in today’s world. «Intrapreneurship » is now needed to foster our dynamic growth, change and innovation. As such, it gives to each and everyone the opportunity to develop one’s leadership skills while inspiring change.
Innovate refers to the ability to be open and think differently. It means thinking out of the box, being original and experimenting with new solutions. It implies being future-oriented and anticipating changes in markets, customers and technologies. Finally It is the ability to promote a safe space where failure is accepted as being part of the game and where every one can learn from it.
Saint-Gobain is already in a rapidly changing world. This requires the Group to constantly innovate to meet its challenges (i.e., integrating a diverse workforce and making it evolve, enabling coopetition with competitors when the market requires it, questioning the past procedures to propose new ones, thinking of new ways to lead R&D through co-development…
This is the ability to be quick in action and mind. It means embracing change and being an active part of it. This requires Saint-Gobain people to develop their self-awareness, the awareness of their team and of their environment (both inside and outside the organization), knowing the strengths and ways of improvement of the people around them. It also requires a lot of energy while ensuring two demands, to know the capabilities of ones team and always to adhere to a perspective of sustainable development.
More than ever, Saint-Gobain is today facing new challenges: getting products to market quickly, adapting to new methods of communication, finding new ways to manage new generations, equip all BU’s with an adequate digital strategy… New challenges will occur overtime. This uncertainty requires from Saint-Gobain people, at all levels, to develop their agility while enhancing their ability to be dynamic, energetic, quick and flexible.
The first requirement, at all levels, is to be open-minded. This means accepting differences, being open to take both positive or negative feedback, being open to try new ways of working and collaborating (internally and externally), to create a safe space where each and every one can express themselves to boost team spirit. This means developing a transversal approach whilst being collaborative, taking a global view and learning continuously. Being true to our General Principles of Conduct and Action, it means also exemplarity, integrity, respect and trust. Demonstrate inclusive leadership which involves and develops people based on an open and meaningful dialogue.
Today’s world is volatile, uncertain and complex bringing daily risks. It challenges us and pushes us out of our comfort zone. What was true yesterday or what is true today, will not be true tomorrow. In the face of such a challenging environment, individualism or a battle of egos cannot be a sustainable solution. The answer comes from an ability to work collaboratively in an inclusive environment that enables innovation and agility. The ability to establish a supportive environment where each and everyone feels at ease, and is prepared to contribute and develop continuously becomes a key success factor. In this stressful environment it is necessary to combine emotion, fun and rationality.
means mobilizing to the best of one’s ability the knowledge and know-how of the individual and also calls for training to keep both up to date. It requires personal commitment and a willingness to take on the tasks assigned and to acquire knowledge necessary to do the job. It implies the effective contribution of each person in caring particularly for the environment and for worker health and safety.

It implies an acceptance of pluralism and other cultures and of people of all origins. It is expressed in a readiness to listen to others, to inform, to explain, and to engage in dialogue.
requires a rigorous adherence to probity in all professional activities. It means that no individual may compromise the interests of the Group entrusted to that individual in favour of his or her own private interests – whether in dealing within the Group or in dealing on behalf of the Group with third parties,whatever local practices might be. Detailed rules of conduct may be adopted for certain categories of Group personnel where the nature of their responsibilities so requires.

In particular, it is incompatible with the pursuit of self-interest where the latter conflicts with the goals of the individual company or the Group as a whole. It implies the adherence to the guidelines and internal rules of individual companies and of the Group.
is based on a sense of individual responsibility at work, which prevails over self-centered thinking.
