Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management and automation, has announced a new Global Family Leave policy that is industry-leading in its global scope and strengthens the company’s commitment to Diversity and Inclusion. The policy will support Schneider Electric employees worldwide by providing paid personal time during moments when it matters the most, enabling them to better manage their unique life and work.

In formulating the policy, Schneider Electric has actively chosen to define “leave” and “family” in an inclusive way, recognizing that definition of family, life and work are changing every day. By design, the policy includes key life stages for welcoming a new baby, taking care of sick or elderly family members, and mourning the loss of a family member. It also assumes an inclusive definition of family by extending an equal amount of parental leave to a parent by natural birth or adoption.

“Diversity and inclusion is an integral part of who we are and what differentiates us. That is how we drive innovation, engagement and high performance.” said Olivier Blum, Chief Human Resources Officer and Executive Vice President at Schneider Electric.
