Building materials company Saint-Gobain received the Top Employers Institute’s Top Employer North America Certification for the second consecutive year.

The institute is an independent organization that certifies employers around the world “for excellence in the work environments they create for their employees,” according to a release. It will honor Saint-Gobain at an award ceremony February 16 in Dallas.

“Creating an inclusive and optimal work environment for all employees is central to our company’s culture and values,” says Susan Nutson, senior vice president of human resources at Saint-Gobain Corporation. “At Saint-Gobain, we aim to foster an environment that promotes employee growth and well-being, and it’s exciting to see that our continued efforts are being recognized by such a high-caliber organization.”

The Top Employers Institute assessed Saint-Gobain’s employee offerings on the criteria of talent strategy, workforce planning, on-boarding, learning and development, performance management, leadership development, career and succession management, compensation and benefits, and company culture.

“Crucial to the Top Employer Certification is the completion of a stringent validation and audit process in which performance scores are rated against an international standard,” the release reads. “Only those employers that meet the required standards of excellence receive Certification. The Top Employers Institute is recognizing Saint-Gobain for the unique employee offerings it provides its employees including: personal health coaching, weight management and nutrition programs, company book clubs and athletic leagues, networking opportunities, a mentoring system and digital learning courses.”
