Schneider Electric named one of the 2019 Best Workplaces
Award underscores the Company's focus on creating an inclusive culture worldwide where employees feel uniquely valued and safe to contribute their best.
Boston, December 20, 2019 – Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, has been honoured by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE as one of the 2019 Best Workplaces for Diversity. The Best Workplaces for Diversity are ones where under-represented and historically discriminated against people thrive and are represented at every level in the organisation, including the board.
To determine the list, Great Place to Work analysed the experiences of employees from diverse backgrounds within their working environment. These results were based on anonymous responses on more than 60 survey questions reflecting the day-to-day workplace treatment represented the work lives of more than 4.8 million employees. As a result, Schneider Electric has been awarded the #76 spot on this year's list.
"We are proud to be recognised with this award because it reflects the importance we place on diversity and inclusion as a core value within our corporate culture," said Santiago Perez, Chief Commercial Digital Officer and SVP US Solutions & Services. "We have proven that our teams are strengthened when we bring together difference perspectives – people with unique backgrounds, cultures and ideas – working together to solve the business challenges we face every day."
As part of our Core Values, Schneider Electric's mission is to create a culture of diversity and inclusivity worldwide. One where our employees feel uniquely valued and safe to contribute their best.
"Building great workplaces for all is not only the right thing to do – it's also a critical way leaders build business value," said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. "In our study of nearly 2,000 companies, we found that key metrics related to equity and inclusion not only drive stronger company innovation, but also predict whether companies will thrive or stumble during a recession."
The Best Workplaces for Diversity list is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE based on anonymous employee feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified™ organisations. Schneider Electric was also recognised as a Best Workplace in Manufacturing & Production by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE in September.
