Annette Clayton is the CEO and President of North America Operations for Schneider Electric.

In an interview with HRD, Annette discusses how Schneider Electric approaches HR and how her personal values are connected to Schneider Electric’s company values.

“We are determined to foster a culture of trust, empowerment, and action that makes Schneider a great place to work. Much like the benefit I received when I was young and my parents encouraged me to get involved and experiment with different projects at home, I believe having strong, visionary leaders attracts great people and makes them want to stay and contribute their best,” says Annette.

“We’ve been recognized by the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index and the Forbes Best Employers for Diversity list in 2019. We’ve also been selected as a finalist in the prestigious Canadian HR Awards and are the only company in our industry to be nominated for Best Talent Management Strategy and HR Leader of the Year awards,” she adds.

“The collective body of work that has been done to enhance our people strategy ensures we can attract, motivate, develop, and retain best-in-class talent. I’m pleased to see how far we’ve come since I’ve been in my position and our journey will continue.”
