A Saint-Gobain initiative encouraging its employees to focus on the topic of careers - experiences, training and development. What are the keys to success and how to apply them?

Multiple learning webcast sessions were attended by our employees, wherein knowledge was shared by other Saint-Gobain employees around the world. Nishi Shetty, Head of Human Resources conducted Face to Face workshops, Saint-Gobain Attitudes training with role plays and acts. Our employees were also encouraged to take up the various e-Learning modules offered by the group.

A video contest was kicked off a few weeks before the learning week. The contest required employees to send in their career stories.

Time to Act!

Set up in 2008, the Saint-Gobain Foundation carries out solidarity initiatives worldwide, in areas that relate to the Group's strategy. It relies on the commitment of Saint-Gobain's employees, with each project to be sponsored by one or more current or retired employees.

This year marked the 10th anniversary of the foundation and we celebrated alongside Saint-Gobain sites all over the world with the ‘Foundation Week’. More than a celebration, the Foundation Week was a week of action, challenges and campaigns for direct donations to associations, fund-raisers, materials donation, sharing of expertise, solidarity hackathons, and so forth. 

The ‘Time to Act’ campaign was launched in our UAE offices, plants and social media. Know more about the campaign at the foundation's website.

Just a week prior to the ‘Foundation Week’, there were two charity initiatives by our employees

  • Iftar Bucket Challenge’ – Dry food items donated by our employees were given to outsourced workers at our plants.
  • Ramadan Sharing Fridges’ -  Our employees joined this initiative with generous donations of food and drink that were distributed to less fortunate community workers and laborers. Know more about this initiative - Visit their Facebook page
