Global Family Leave Policy
It is a truly inclusive policy that will be applied to all employees worldwide, no matter who they are or where in the world they may be.
It is also inclusive by addressing various leave needs-parental, care and bereavement.
"We are proud to be the first in our industry to make such a global commitment.” Jean-Pascal Tricoire, CEO
• 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.
• It also assumes an inclusive definition of family by extending an equal amount of parental leave to a parent by natural birth or adoption.
