How do inclusion and care by design create a positive impact on our people, our company, and our society and contribute to sustainable development?
Schneider Electric aims for inclusion and care by design to ensure safe and inclusive work environments and business decisions that make sustainability a global and local reality. As one of the world’s most diverse, inclusive, and equitable companies, Schneider Electric believes in fostering diversity, equity, inclusion, and well-being for its workforce internally and providing energy access to all externally to tackle climate change. We believe in DEI (diversity, equity, inclusion) commitments and focus on gender balance with initiatives like HeForShe Campaign for women to hire and train them for leadership and frontline management roles. We lead the way by combatting the gender compensation gap and unconscious bias and by boosting inclusive and flexible-working policies, making life and career development for our people easier. We forge partnerships with organisations that prioritise inclusion and care to help drive change in the work standards for all stakeholders. Ours is a people company that embraces differences and builds an inclusive culture of respect where everyone is equal, unique, and safe to be at their best. We are committed to disability inclusion and making our workplaces and premises accessible to all by applying universal design principles when designing new sites and taking adaptation measures where possible in our existing ones. Schneider Electric intends to improve the lives of people everywhere in the world by developing sustainable energy solutions and extending its support to an inclusive culture and equal opportunities at work. We believe that all forms of diversity bring real value to the company, as diverse genders, ethnicities, and experiences can bring creative and innovative outcomes.
