Saint-Gobain Group Learning & Development accredited by CLIP


We are proud to announce that the Saint-Gobain Group Learning & Development (SGLD) was accredited by the EFMD Corporate Learning Improvement Process (CLIP).

CLIP is a unique accreditation run by EFMD that focuses on identifying the key factors that determine quality in the design and functioning of corporate universities and learning organisations.

Martin Moehrle, Director of Corporate Services at EFMD, who leads the CLIP process, commented: “EFMD is glad that Saint-Gobain Group learning & development has recently undergone the rigorous process of earning CLIP accreditation and we hope SGLD will leverage that status for greater international recognition, their employees, potential partners, and broad societal impact.”

SGLD encourages constant talent management and talent mobility, which makes the learning environment a vibrant space open to cross-enterprise mobility.

Saint-Gobain is equally aware that coaches and managers have a vital role for building successful learning cultures and offers coaching across the broad spectrum of its activities, including leadership development programmes.

Martin Moehrle concluded: “We were impressed by the top management’s involvement in learning, by the coaching practice and the way SGLD implements blended learning and explores digital learning practices.”

Anne Silberstein, Group L&D Deputy Director at Saint-Gobain, said: “We at Saint-Gobain Learning & Development are striving to make Saint-Gobain the best place to learn. We are extremely proud that our efforts and the work of our team is being recognized. CLIP accreditation process has allowed us to take a step back and reflect on our practices. Suggestions received will be extremely valuable to us in order to work even more efficiently. It will definitely be a strong asset that we will leverage to attract and retain the talents needed by our Group. We look forward to being an active partner within the EFMD CLIP network.”

About CLIP:

The CLIP assessment process covers all the essential dimensions of a corporate learning function’s deployment within the company: the alignment of its mission and operational objectives with corporate strategy, the effectiveness of its governance and internal management systems. Furthermore, its ability to address key issues of concern to the business units, the programme design process and the overall coherence of the programme portfolio. The quality of delivery and the impact of the corporate university’s activities upon individual and organisational learning are similarly taken into account.

Internal self-assessment against a set of rigorous standards drawn up by leading members of the corporate learning community is combined with external review by experienced peers.
