Building an Inclusive Company in a Diverse World
Supporting our SE Great People through inclusive practices
Our aspiration is to improve the lives of people everywhere in the world by developing sustainable energy solutions. This belief also extends to the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion philosophy in Schneider Electric.
Through inclusive policies, we create equal opportunities for all our employees. No matter who you are, where in the world you live, or how you manage your unique life and work, you can always be at your best at Schneider Electric.
New ways of workingWe have refreshed our Flexibility at Work policy, by introducing a new global standard: a hybrid work model (a mix of working from home and working from the office) across the company.
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.

The Forum will launch a series of concrete, ambitious and transformative actions to achieve immediate and irreversible progress towards gender equality.
Our continued commitment for gender equality
Over the last six years, a unique group of world leaders from government, business, and academia including Schneider Electric’s Chairman and CEO, Jean-Pascal Tricoire, have worked to address some of today's most pressing social issues. Known as HeForShe Champions, they came together at the HeForShe Summit to share their journey.
In the Eliminating the Gender Pay Gap panel session, Jean-Pascal and Sébastien Bazin, Chairman and CEO, shared tangible actions that everyone can take to make the world a more equal place.
