Whether you are a young graduate or experienced in your field, looking for an internship or an apprenticeship or an international business program contract, Saint-Gobain provides you with the opportunity for a dynamic professional experience with multiple challenges in a multicultural environment.
A forward-thinking strategy: sustainable habitat
Saint-Gobain aims to be the reference for sustainable habitat. The Group is positioned as a leading player to deliver solutions that make buildings energy-efficient and answer the challenges of environmental protection. Innovation is at the heart of this strategy: to invent today the materials for the house of the future.
To join Saint-Gobain is to become part of an international company with strong values shared by all its employees: our Principles of Conduct and Action.
Positive and respectful management
Because dialog and understanding are essential in the day-to-day workplace, four “managerial attitudes” guide the conduct of our employees in manager and supervisor positions: always be consistent with the Group’s values, no leadership without close focus on people, walk the talk, and no complacency allowed.
Our management teams convey our values and our culture, and ensure the sustainable development of our activities in all countries where we operate.
The respect for diversity and the rejection of all forms of discrimination are incorporated into the Principles of Conduct and Action that guide human resources management at every step in our employees’ careers.
The Group’s salary policy reflects:
- equitable, motivating and plainly understood principles
- personal responsibility and expertise
To encourage team spirit and involve all employees in Saint-Gobain’s success, the Group is committed to signing collective employee-profit sharing agreements whenever possible.
Internal mobility for a dynamic career
Mobility in all its forms, whether geographic, or between positions or activities, is a mainstay of Saint-Gobain’s human resources policy. Diversifying our employees’ experience is an underlying factor in the Group’s strength, and encourages innovation and exchange among teams.
