Schneider Electric CEO and Chairman Jean-Pascal Tricoire has been named a Glassdoor Top CEO for his ongoing commitment to building an inclusive and empowering employee culture that drives innovation and sustainability.
Glassdoor, the worldwide leader in insights about jobs and companies, released its annual Employee Choice Award recognizing the top CEOs in countries throughout North America and parts of Europe.
Tricoire ranked second in France and eighth in Canada based on anonymous and voluntary employee feedback throughout the past year. Globally, he holds a 97% approval rating from employees, 24 points higher than the Glassdoor CEO average.
“Great People make Schneider Electric a Great company,” says Charise Le, Chief Human Resources Officerat Schneider Electric. “I am delighted that our employees recognize we collectively drive a meaningful purpose to enable progress and sustainability for all. At the same time, we are committed to providing equal opportunities to everyone, everywhere so that our employees are empowered to innovate and manage their unique life and work.”
Since being named CEO in 2006, Tricoire’s leadership has helped transform Schneider into a global group, extending the scope of the company’s activities from a vendor of electrical products to a supplier of digital systems. Tricoire’s commitment to sustainability, founded within the purpose of “empowering all to make the most of our energy and resources”, led to Schneider being recognized as the 2021 Most Sustainable Corporation in the World by Corporate Knights.
Earlier this year, Tricoire’s tenure on the United Nations Global Compact Board was extended for an additional three years as he wraps up his five-year stint as one of the 10 corporate U.N. #HeForShe IMPACT champions. Over the past six years he has led the company in achieving three commitments to advance gender equality, including bringing worldwide pay equity to 99.6% of the global workforce, above the initial goal of 95%.
