Saint-Gobain UK & Ireland has launched the third edition of its Entrepreneurship Foundation, in partnership with the IOEE, CITB and Supply Chain Sustainability School.

The leader in the construction materials market Entrepreneurship Foundation aims to equip small companies with the business and management skills needed to develop and grow their enterprises.

It offers practical, hands-on training and an introduction to sustainable building systems, delivered by the Supply Chain Sustainability School and Saint-Gobain’s expert technical teams.

There will be core business skills training delivered through the IOEE and CITB, which will include guidance on a whole host of things, including marketing, leadership and management, innovation, finance and effective planning.

Mike Chaldecott, General Delegate for Saint-Gobain UK and Ireland, commented on the initiative: “The Entrepreneurship Foundation is the manifestation of our commitment to “support the industry”, expressed in our CSR strategy.

“We believe that it is our role to actively promote the development of businesses, so that they can attract talent and meet the demands of a developing, dynamic and innovative construction industry.

“It’s great to be working with some great organisations, such as CITB and IOEE to deliver the Foundation. We anticipate this will make a real difference to the companies signed up to the Foundation this year.” added Mike.

Having started in 2015, with the objective of helping over 200 growing businesses by 2020, the Entrepreneurship Foundation represents a long-term commitment from Saint-Gobain to support small business.

It builds on the work the company has done over many years in providing skills and advice to the trade in order to promote a sustainable built environment.
