Richard Batley, Director of CSR and HR at Saint-Gobain UK & Ireland, took part in a discussion with Business Studies students in Birmingham as part of Business in the Community’s (BITC) Responsible Business Week (18-22 April).

The ‘Question Time’ style event, held at Shenley Academy, Birmingham, saw students quizzing a number of companies about their approach to responsible business practice and the importance of better workplaces and thriving communities. The event was also designed to inspire the students to become responsible business people in the future, as well as help with wider learning.

Organised as part of BITC’s Business Class, a programme designed to connect businesses with local schools to help prepare young people for the world of work, Saint-Gobain will be one of many businesses based in the local area taking part in the Q&A session.

Richard Batley commented: “It is important for businesses to connect with the next generation, to provide young people with the skills and knowledge they need early in their careers. This is especially true in the construction sector, and by acting as a responsible business and giving the next generation a helping hand, young talent can keep the industry moving forward.”
