Diversity & Inclusion White Paper
Manage Your Unique Life and Work“We are proud to be the first in our industry to make such a global commitment.” Jean-Pascal Tricoire, CEO
Our Global Family Leave Policy includes key life stages for welcoming a new baby, taking care of sick or elderly family members, and mourning the loss of a family member. Recognizing that definition of family, life and work are changing every day, we have defined “leave” and “family” in an inclusive way.
Employees Share Their Experiences“I’m grateful for the new family leave policy that helps keep our Schneider Electric motto “Life is On” true for new parents. I hope we inspire other companies to make diversity and inclusion an integral part of their business.”
How Schneider Electric’s Family Leave Policy Supported My Non-Traditional Family“Our family story was far from traditional but that didn’t make it any less special or in need of the same benefits as traditional parents.”
- Annette Clayton, President and CEO, North America Operations, Schneider Electric
