A COMPANY THAT GENUINELY CARES

Improving daily lives isn’t just our tagline – it’s a promise. Our commitment to this goes far beyond just selling products. Instead we take action to have a positive impact on the communities we work within.

What could this mean for you, as a future employee of Saint-Gobain? Find out more about our employees efforts, the projects they get involved with and how they feel about our work in the following areas:

 

BEING A RESPONSIBLE NEIGHBOUR:

Everyone loves a good neighbour and with more than 1,100 sites across the UK and Ireland, including 45+ manufacturing facilities, we’ve got lots of neighbours.

Many of our colleagues (and potential future candidates!) live in nearby communities so we want to be welcomed and trusted as a neighbour. We like to be an active member of the community in which we work in and to be an organisation that is a benefit to the community.

PROTECTING LOCAL COMMUNITIES.

We actively take steps to reduce our impact on local communities – altering the routes of our lorries, ensuring dust is kept under control through water suppression and installing noise dampening measures – to name but a few.

We like to do the right thing and we think it’s the right thing to do to ensure our sites are well-kept and local biodiversity is improved so nature can also thrive.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR OUR EMPLOYEES?

Many of our businesses have partnerships with local schools where colleagues apply their professional skills by acting as mentors and giving their time to give career and interview advice. Colleagues can hold mock interviews with each student, provide feedback to them and discuss their goals as well as sharing expertise around career paths and skills.

ANGELA'S EXPERIENCE

ANGELA'S EXPERIENCE

Angela Currell, a Senior Buyer from Saint-Gobain Delegation joined colleagues to visit a local school in Rugby. 

 

Angela said, ‘When you’re at school, it’s so hard to know what jobs are out there when you haven’t yet been exposed to a professional work environment. I loved being able to get to know the students, share my knowledge with them and give a little back by sharing practical tips which I hope will help their career prospects. It’s great that Saint-Gobain has these partnerships and actively encourages employees to get involved, so that we can play a part in helping young people with their professional skills.”

GETTING INVOLVED WITH LOCAL ENVIRONMENTAL AND CHARITY GROUPS

GETTING INVOLVED WITH LOCAL ENVIRONMENTAL AND CHARITY GROUPS

In addition to creating jobs in local communities, and taking part in community activities, many of our businesses are active supporters of local charities and voluntary organisations.

Volunteers of our British Gypsum site at Fauld got involved with Staffordshire Wildlife Trust recently to cut down Oak and Silver Birch saplings which if left to grow would transform the rare heathland into forest!

Pictured here, colleagues from across the business took over the running of a Barnardos Charity Store for the day to try to increase their sales and raise even more funds to help young care leavers.

JEWSON - BUILDS BETTER COMMUNITIES

Our brand Jewson goes one step further and even has an annual awards ceremony 'Building Better Communities' to reward local projects with funds and support.

The programme began in 2015 and, since then Jewson Building Better Communities has helped over 100 people and projects, and awarded over £800,000 in building materials to good causes.

 

You can read all about the projects Jewson Building Better Communities has helped here, or watch a video about the programme below.
