The accolade recognises employers who have implemented policies and practices that have had a positive impact on their employees and the business.
Saint-Gobain UK & Ireland has been certified as a Top Employer in the United Kingdom for the ninth consecutive year, and in Ireland for a sixth consecutive year.
The accolade, awarded annually by the Top Employers Institute, recognises employers who have implemented policies and practices that have had a positive impact on their employees and the business.
Learning and development opportunities, career and succession, working conditions and the overall culture of the organisation are all independently audited during the annual process.
Mike Chaldecott, Chief Executive, Saint-Gobain UK and Ireland, said: “We’re thrilled to be recognised as a Top Employer in not only the UK and Ireland, but also globally. This is great recognition of the hard work of many of our colleagues but it’s also recognition of the great culture we have in Saint-Gobain that every single colleague contributes to.”
Saint-Gobain has also been singled out as a Global Top Employer for the sixth consecutive year thanks to the company’s 36 countries that have currently been certified. This recognises the exceptional employee offering the organisation provides in its companies across the world. Saint-Gobain is one of only 16 companies to receive this badge worldwide.
Judges at the Top Employer Institute praised the company for openly encouraging colleagues to reach their full potential. Career mobility lies at the heart of Saint-Gobain’s culture and with over 30 brands in the UK and Ireland, there are a wealth of career opportunities available to colleagues, with many moving between Saint-Gobain businesses to expand and further their careers.
