Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back
Saint-Cobain is dedicated to the environment and has several different schemes in place to help. A tree planting scheme is in place, where for every 10 tonnes of expected waste not produced, a new tree is planted on site. This project was started with the aim of creating a wildlife area to recognise and remind every person on site each day, the need for duty or care and the positive effects this will give towards the environment. To support their local community they try to fill available vacancies with local people and also do a lot of work with the local schools. They work closely with North Yorkshire Business and Education Partnership and sponsor and become involved in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths Fair that they organise. As part of their commitment they also support local schools in career management and interview practise.

The company have a number of schemes in place to ensure employees feel valued and are rewarded for their efforts. They offer an individual performance related bonus and a site wide bonus for manufacturing performance. Employees can also nominate one another for work they have done above and beyond expectations. Points are then awarded which can be redeemed for vouchers and their achievement is acknowledged by all of the senior management team. To provide employees with a more instant form of recognition line managers issue on the spot vouchers for the staff canteen.
