Skill Building Initiative

The Indian gypsum industry is developing fast, and this fast pace of growth is leading to an increased demand for skilled manpower in the industry. Gyproc India has identified this as an important concern and is working towards bridging the gap between in this need and the current availability of skilled human resources, by conducting a basic training course in Drywall & False Ceiling for fresh labour coming into the industry.

Gyproc India, in close collaboration with Dr. K.L Garg Vocational Training Institute, has commenced this initiative through a learning centre in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, which is the hub for most of the current tradesmen in Indian gypsum industry. The aim of the training program is to provide skill training to fresh candidates and to help the attendees take up employment in the fast-growing gypsum-based construction industry.

The program comprises of 21 days of detailed training sessions for Gypsum False Ceiling and Drywall installation, with a mix of theory and practical sessions. Each batch has 30 students.

The program curriculum covers:

  • False Ceiling
  • Drywall Installation
  • Safety Parameters
  • Modern Tool Knowledge

The centre has conducted 3 batches till date and has been instrumental in the successful course completion and placement of more than 60 tradesmen, who are now working with leading contracting firms. The course is delivered by instructors with training experience from CIDC (Construction Industry Development Council) and ITI (Training Institute Industrial).

Recognition of our Trade by the Government of India

We are pleased to inform you that our trade has finally been recognized by the Government of India. The course module on “Drywall and False Ceiling” has been approved by the DGET (Director General of Employment and Training), which is under Ministry of Labour and Employment. It is a course under MES (Modular Employable Skills) as part of the Construction Sector.

A parallel initiative has also been implemented for on-site training. On-ground training is imparted to manpower working on project sites to train them during project implementation. This ensures that best

practices are learnt on the site itself. The learning and development of such individuals shall lead to empowered tradesmen in days to come.

Course Name: Assistant Technician Drywall and False Ceiling – Sr. No 272 – MES Code - CON 702 was uploaded on 11th Sep 2014.

The benefits of this approval are as below:

  • This has been categorized under A grade, looking at the training cost and type of job
  • This can now be run by all the VTP’s (Vocational Training Providers)
  • The Institute can charge Rs.27.50 per hour / student
  • This course is devised for 500 hours and hence the institute will get Rs.13,500/- per student
  • This can be run across India

This recognition is a great boost to our industry and will help us generate skilled manpower. This recognition is also a great example of teamwork between Gyproc and you (our High Rise Club members), whose representation and support made this recognition possible.


Over the years, the Saint-Gobain Group has evolved a number of shared principles, which have guided its activities across the world. These shared principles have been given written expression to strengthen their application within the group. The Saint-Gobain Group's General Principles of Conduct and Action include:

Principles of Conduct

Professional Commitment

Professional commitment means mobilising an individual's knowledge and know-how, as well as training to keep them up-to-date. It means personal commitment and a willingness to take on assigned tasks and to acquire the knowledge necessary to do the job. It also calls for each person to care for the environment and worker health and safety.

Respect for Others

Respect for others is absolutely essential to ensure each person's professional and personal development. It involves accepting other cultures and of people of different origins, and a readiness to listen to others, to inform, to explain, and to engage in dialogue.


Saint-Gobain requires rigorous adherence to probity in all professional activities. No individual may put his or her own interests ahead of the group – whether in dealing within the group or on its behalf with third parties.


All individuals must practice honesty and fairness in dealing with superiors, colleagues, subordinates and third parties. Individuals should not pursue their self-interest when it comes into conflict with the goals of the company or the group as a whole. There should be strict adherence to guidelines and internal rules of individual companies and of the group.


Solidarity is based on a sense of individual responsibility at work, working as a team and bringing out the best in each person, to achieve the objectives of the company and the group. It means rejecting management or operational methods geared more to the satisfaction of certain individuals rather than the interests of the individual company or the group.

Principles of Action

Respect for the Law

All group companies must follow the laws and regulations of the countries in which they do business. In particular, they must not indulge in actions that might breach competition law. They must refrain from any form of political activity or financing, even if it is allowed under local laws. They must also reject all forms of active or passive corruption, whether in domestic or international transactions. Furthermore, they must avoid loopholes or inadequacies in any laws or regulations if that means non-compliance with the norms of the Saint-Gobain Group in the areas described below.

Caring for the Environment

Group companies should actively promote the protection of the environment. All company sites should set clear environmental targets and regularly monitor them, measuring them against these targets. They must strive to raise environmental performance standards to match the best in the group – even if that means going beyond the requirements of local legislation.

Worker Health and Safety

Group companies should take particular care to ensure the best possible protection against health and safety risks in the workplace. They must adopt risk reduction policies check actual results against applicable standards. Such policies must apply not just to their own employees but also to the employees of subcontractors, when the latter are working on a group site. They must strive to raise the health and safety performance standards of their own sites to the best found in the group – even if that means going beyond the requirements of local legislation.

Employee Rights

Group companies must scrupulously respect employees' rights, and must promote active dialogue. They must not use forced, compulsory, or child labour – whether directly or indirectly or through sub-contractors. They must also refrain from any form of discrimination against their employees, whether in the recruitment process, in hiring, or during or at the end of the employment relationship.
