Purposeful passion, the common link in creating a positive culture and driving growth

After spending much of his first year as CEO visiting Saint-Gobain’s sites across the country, Tom aims to channel the purposeful passion he encountered across the entire business.

Strategic Vision

Innovation occurs at the intersection of a critical problem, diverse ideas, and people willing to listen to new perspectives. But before we can accomplish anything, we need to invest in people. Seeking out fresh talent, focusing on customer-centric innovation, and ensuring that we have a unified clarity of purpose, these three things amplify one another in a virtuous cycle of success.

The study details how a systems-based approach to design can positively impact thermal, visual and acoustical comfort, and indoor air quality to achieve overall multi-comfort, productivity, and well-being.

Our Living Laboratory

We've created a high-performance workplace that encourages employee productivity, collaboration, satisfaction and well-being. By installing more than 60 of our sustainable building materials, working together in a systems-based approach, we influenced occupant comfort and well-being.

  • COLLABORATE in an open office environment without disrupting others.
  • BREATHE easier in your workspace thanks to air that is actively cleaned as you inhale.
  • SURROUND yourself with 360-degree views in an all-glass lobby as quiet as it is beautiful.
  • ENJOY outdoor views without the need for blinds or shades.
  • TRANSFORM a bustling cafeteria into a meeting space where everyone can hear the presenter.
  • BOOST productivity by providing views of nature, fresh air and minimal disruption.
  • SPEAK to a large group without a microphone and without raising your voice.
  • ACHIEVE sustainability goals while pleasing occupants.
