Schneider Electric in Universum Diversity & Inclusion Index

Schneider Electric in Universum Diversity & Inclusion Index

 December 09, 2019

Prime employer for women Schneider Electric is included in Universum's first Diversity & Inclusion Index.

With diversity and inclusion becoming one of the hottest topics on organisations’ agendas, the index is compiled through a survey conducted by Universum across a sample of over 247,000 students in the 12 largest global economies, revealing which companies are perceived as the most inclusive and diverse workplaces in the world.

Diverse recruiting is a global priority

“We see a lot of effort by employers in both promoting diversity and inclusion (D&I) and working actively within their organisations. Students are looking into companies that are really working with D&I in a deep and meaningful way, not just talking about the numbers but in developing the culture, and in walking the talk," says Claudia Tattanelli, Chair of the Strategic Advisory Board at Universum.

The growing importance of D&I for corporations is clear and has been confirmed by the results of the Employer Branding Now (EB Now) study. The study included a sample of over 2,000 global employers: 85 per cent of them claimed that hiring for diversity is considered a high priority and that the focus on communicating the topic has increased by 14 per cent in the past three years (percentage of companies including D&I as part of their Employer Value Proposition).

"We are honored to be listed among the world’s most diverse and inclusive employers in Universum’s D&I Index. Learn more about our careers and join us," said Schneider Electric.
