Careers at Saint-Gobain

Do you know what it's like to work at the Saint-Gobain Group?

Here, it is possible to find an inclusive, diverse environment that encourages open dialogue, the sharing of ideas, intrapreneurship, collaboration, mobility and responsibility towards society and its communities. 

Inclusion and diversity

In order to build a corporate culture that is even richer, more open and in tune with the world around us, we at Saint-Gobain recognize and respect the uniqueness of each individual. We want to integrate and mobilize these differences by creating an inclusive environment that enables everyone's professional growth.   

We are therefore committed to promoting diversity in all its forms, and we adopt a zero-tolerance stance towards discrimination. 

Our performance in terms of inclusion and diversity allows us to be included in the Bloomberg Gender Equality Index 2021 for the third consecutive year. Find out about our recognitions and commitments .

Career development and mobility

Here at Saint-Gobain, we encourage open listening and seek to encourage the professional development of our employees. We open possibilities for everyone to trace a path rich in experiences and exchanges, moving towards their goals.

We constantly carry out the promotion of dialogues about career, professional objectives, exchange of experiences and opportunities within the Group. We believe in the mobility of our employees, whether between areas, between companies and between countries. Know more:

Intrapreneurship

In addition to encouraging mobility within the Group for the development of our talents and professional achievement, we also believe in sharing ideas and experiences. The day-to-day of our employees and contact with market needs offer a broad and practical view of the trends in the segments where we operate. Therefore, we understand that promoting a platform for sharing ideas for new products and solutions is a lever for innovation, as well as for developing the entrepreneurship and autonomy of our teams.

With that in mind, we created InPulse, a program to encourage intrapreneurship, where employees have the chance to present ideas for new solutions, products and services, with the possibility of having their projects accelerated by Saint-Gobain, incorporated into the Group's portfolio and even developing new skills. Learn more about our innovation initiatives here .

corporate responsibility

We are a company committed to ensuring that our activities, our employees and our partners are collectively involved in building a more sustainable world. Learn more about our initiatives at:

Health and wellness

At Saint-Gobain, we are committed to protecting the health and promoting the well-being of our employees, customers, suppliers, users of our products and solutions, and communities neighboring the markets where we operate.

For this, we developed a Health Policy that aims to promote a work environment that protects the physical and mental health of our employees through initiatives and programs that reinforce the Group's purpose. In addition to protecting our employees, we are also concerned with offering tools to promote health – in this way, they become protagonists of their own well-being. We encourage actions that can transform the routine and daily life of employees, such as physical exercise and healthy eating. 
 
In addition, we work to preserve the health and well-being of our customers by developing products and solutions that offer:

  • Visual comfort and access to natural light;
  • Acoustic comfort;
  • Thermal comfort;
  • Indoor air quality;
  • Aesthetic quality.

We have also created an Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) booklet whose main objective is to promote:

  • ZERO accidents at work;
  • ZERO occupational diseases;
  • ZERO environmental accidents and minimal impact on our activities.

These concerns reinforce our goals and also direct our employees' attention to a more careful and attentive routine to day-to-day needs and the challenges of the world.
