"Tout dirigeant le sait : les femmes et les hommes d'une entreprise sont le bien le plus important et le plus exigeant. Leurs talents, leurs savoir-faire et leur capacité à travailler ensemble en font la réussite. Signe des temps, l'engagement des salariés est l'un des principaux indicateurs avancés de la performance de l'entreprise." Benoit Bazin, directeur général du Groupe Saint-Gobain.

From www.linkedin.com - 01 June 2021 | 10:06am
