The Top Employers Institute globally certifies excellence in the conditions that employers create for their people. Optimal employee conditions ensure that people develop themselves personally and professionally. This in turn enables companies to grow and to develop, always.
Headquartered in the Netherlands, the company, previously known as the CRF Institute, has recognised Top Employers around the world since 1991.
Recognition as a Top Employer enables companies to stand out as employers of choice. This is beneficial for all stakeholders, and in particular their current and prospective employees. Being certified provides companies with the opportunity to celebrate their achievements and to reinforce the role of the HR environment in the business.
David Plink, CEO: “Over the years, we have assessed and certified companies the world over using our proprietary methodology. We strongly value our objectivity, independence and selectivity. As a result, current and prospective employees can trust upon the certified organisations to have excellent conditions in place for their people to develop. Always.”
Paying attention to its employees is a deeply-rooted tradition in the history and the values of the Saint-Gobain Group. Employer-employee discussion, in-house promotion, group-work and training are the very fundamentals of our corporate culture. Ideally suited to our multi-site organization, the Top Employers quality label, first awarded at national level and then at regional level, has allowed us to make progress in each sector of our HR policies: Mobility, Diversity, Commitment and Talents. The comparison it entails with other Groups is highly stimulating and acts to reinforce both our ambition and our ability to respond to the changing expectations of our workforce.
