Our customers see our company through our people. We strive to have the best knowledge of our business and technology and the ability to deliver our collective know-how. To achieve this, we create the right environment for our employees: an accessible leadership, shared accountability, and superior teamwork fueled by our common culture and purpose.
Engaging great people
Great people make Schneider Electric a great company. We motivate employees, support employee engagement, and promote involvement by:
Encouraging them to live Schneider Electric’s company values and to “Step Up” as high performers
Supporting inclusion and diversity through awareness and mobilization campaigns and formal programs
Enabling professional development through leadership coaching, recognition, and ongoing learning opportunities
Ensuring safe, healthy working conditions through formal safety and well-being programs
Our ultimate ambition is to generate higher performance and employee engagement to ensure that our customers encounter only the best professionals in their industry.
Our employees are directly involved in Schneider Electric’s strategy through the Schneider is On company program. Launched in January 2015, this five-year program gives employees an action guide for advancing customer-centric priorities.
Stepping up for customers
One of the five Schneider is On company program pillars, Step Up is our people strategy. It gives us a common roadmap to transform our leadership and culture in the coming years. Specifically, Step Up focuses on developing skills, managing talent, and building unparalleled teams to help Schneider Electric deliver a superior customer experience through:
A high-performance culture
Schneider Electric’s high-performance philosophy encourages employees to deliver strong, sustained performance. A culture of ongoing feedback supports, empowers, and motivates employees, creating a positive environment characterized by on-the-spot recognition and ongoing opportunities for development.
Recognizing strong talent
We know that acknowledging talent goes a long way. Launched in October 2016, Schneider Electric’s new Global Recognition Program highlights exemplary employee behaviors and performance. Both individual employees and managers can nominate colleagues for recognition and appreciation of a job well done.
The highest recognition an employee can receive is a Schneider is On trophy. These annual awards celebrate teams that do great things and deliver on the promise of our company program: to put customers first. For example, Mohammad Aurangzeb and his team received the best strategic accounts executive Gold Winner trophy for always listening and responding to the Chevron account’s business needs.
Taking charge of careers
As part of Schneider Electric’s Talent Transformation, within the Step Up initiative, we launched the CareerConnect app to facilitate knowledge sharing across Schneider. Employees can use CareerConnect to:
Look for career advice
Share skill sets
Network with colleagues worldwide
Mentors can build leadership and management skills, while mentees enjoy guidance, career support, and higher performance. This platform empowers everyone to take charge of their careers.
Being a Schneider is On trophy winner generates a lot of positivity, which definitely turns into drive and makes me optimistic about future successes.
