ANDOVER, Mass., July 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management and automation, has been listed in LinkedIn Top Attractors, a global ranking of the 40 companies that attract most interest on LinkedIn; the business-oriented social networking service.
LinkedIn's Top Attractors list is the first ranking of its kind to be based entirely on actions of users on LinkedIn. The methodology for compiling the list leveraged actions such as job applications, engagement and new hire staying power. The insights and global editorial teams of the professional social network analyzed literally billions of actions taken by its 433+ million members to come up with a blended score that was used to rank the winners. Schneider Electric ranks 30th among the 40 most attractive companies globally, and is placed second in its industry as well as French companies.
Great people make Schneider Electric a great company
This result acknowledges the attractiveness of the Schneider Electric employer brand among professionals. Schneider Electric strongly believes that great people make a great company. The Group and its employees strive to be straightforward, to challenge themselves and be open, passionate, and effective in whatever they do. These values define Schneider Electric, its customer approach and its business methods. Schneider Electric employees understand this and welcome the challenge to live these values every day. This mission is what makes Schneider Electric and its employees unique. Commenting on Schneider Electric's ranking, LinkedIn said: "Schneider Electric insists on getting close to its users. The embedding culture extends to learning: Schneider Electric runs its own school where engineers are trained on the new systems it's inventing. The company prefers to promote its own rather than recruiting stars, though employees at acquired companies find the path to big responsibility happens quickly."
"To be considered an employer of choice by LinkedIn's members is an important part of being an attractive employer. It is great to see that our newly defined Schneider Electric Employer Value Proposition launched last year is resonating so well with talent all over the world," said Olivier Blum, Chief Human Resources Officer and Executive Vice President, Schneider Electric. "Schneider Electric is a company that offers a truly meaningful purpose to employees, as underlined by our strong commitment to sustainability."

- Develop accessible leaders who decide quickly and are exemplary in building teams, collaboration and business;
- Engage people who are moved by a common culture and purpose;
- Enable superior teamwork with the right balance of freedom, process and speed to move from innovation to execution.
The group is regularly recognized by third-party organizations for its corporate social responsibility and commitment to customers and employees.
