BOSTON, Sept. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Schneider Electric, the leader of digital transformation in energy management and automation, was honored today by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE in being named one of the 2019 Best Workplaces in Manufacturing & Production. This award reflects Schneider Electric's focus on our workforce and culture that positively impacts its employees, shareholders, and the community, while enhancing employee engagement and pride within our team.
The importance of this recognition is based on its grounding in the feedback from our own employees. In fact, 85 percent of the evaluation is based on what employees say about their experiences of trust and reaching their full human potential as part of our organization, no matter who they are or what they do. The remaining 15 percent of the rank is based on an assessment of all employees' daily experiences of innovation, our Company's values, and the effectiveness of our leaders.
"We are proud to receive this honor because it represents the feedback of our team in the US. We believe in building an inclusive culture, and it's great to see our team recognize that in their experience here," said Aamir Paul, US President, Schneider Electric. "We have made great progress in important areas, including diversity, pay equity, and sustainability, and are seeing the benefits in recruiting and retaining the best and brightest to work with us over the long term."
