Diversity takes many forms. When it comes to this topic, we may think in terms of age, race, gender, ethnicity, religion, physical ability and sexual orientation. We also value differing styles of working and thinking. And we look for diversity in the structure of our teams, which can span different levels at Eaton, involving multiple functions, businesses and even geographies.
Our customers are located in virtually every country in the world. We build skilled, high-performing teams who represent the diversity of our customers. Our reputation for innovative solutions and products depends on it.
We believe this outlook helps us attract, retain and engage top talent around the world.
We believe that inclusive behaviours drive innovation and growth and:
Our inclusion employee resource groups (iERGs) provide a space where various demographic groups and their allies work together towards common organisational goals. Our employees are encouraged to participate in iERGs and contribute unique ideas to evolve our culture toward a model of inclusion and diversity.
The iERGs create open forums where ideas are exchanged, acting as a catalyst for learning, collaboration and professional growth. Some activities include webinars, speakers, networking events, mentoring and roundtables with executives. And new employees learn about our culture, helping build and maintain employee engagement, satisfaction and retention.
We are proud of the impact that iERGs continue to have at Eaton. Their activities are engaging and empowering thousands around the world.
