As well as being part of a large international group, we have long established companies in Ireland, and this award should help increase our profile further and encourage diverse and talented people to want to join us”.
This award recognises that Saint-Gobain in Ireland provides exceptional employee conditions, nurtures and develops talent throughout all levels of the organisation, has demonstrated its leadership status in the HR environment, and is always striving to optimise its employment practices and to develop its employees.
