||Schneider Electric’s people are critical to its success. The Group motivates its employees and promotes involvement by making the most of diversity, supporting professional development, and ensuring safe, healthy working conditions.
Diversity underpins our history, culture and identity. That's why the first commitment in Our Principles of Responsibility states that: "Schneider Electric employees can all express their cultural diversity and are managed without discrimination.
"We know that employees who feel respected are more motivated and effective. For this reason, we've taken measures to promote gender equality in the workplace, age diversity, jobs for the disabled and minority hiring. We take action at three levels: recruitment, job opportunities and career development.
Our goal is to make diversity a strength, an advantage and a lever for developing creativity and competitiveness.
In designing its policies in 2006, Schneider Electric adopted the World Health Organization's definition of health: "Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity". For Schneider Electric, health is a challenge shared by all of its team members and partners.
The Group also considers that insurance coverage is a crucial lever for maintaining a high level of good health. It believes in deploying local approaches to achieve its goal of being the health benchmark in all host countries.
