  • Eaton named one of America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity in Newsweek for the second year in a row, earning five out of five stars

DUBLIN, January 22, 2024 /3BL/ - Intelligent power management company Eaton (NYSE:ETN) announced it was recently recognized by two prestigious organizations for its deep commitment to delivering an inclusive employee experience. First, Eaton achieved a 100% on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2023-2024 Corporate Equality Index (CEI). Second, Newsweek once again named Eaton one of America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity. Eaton believes inclusive behaviors drive innovation and growth, enable high-performing teams and deliver confidence to stakeholders that they are engaging with a sustainable, socially responsible company.

The CEI, an annual benchmark for workplace equality, reflects how U.S.-based companies promote LGBTQ+-friendly workplace policies in the U.S. and abroad. It measures areas such as non-discrimination policies, equitable benefits, culture and corporate social responsibility. By satisfying all of the CEI’s criteria this year, Eaton earned the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Equality 100 Award: Leader in LGBTQ+ Workplace Inclusion.   

Scoring for America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity is based on publicly available data, interviews with Human Resources professionals, press and anonymous online employee surveys at companies with more than 1,000 employees. Researchers also considered more than 21 Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) such as diversity ratio, diversity reviews and information from social media platforms.

“These latest recognitions reflect our commitment to being a model for inclusion and diversity in our industry,” said Cindy Fisher, vice president, Global Inclusion and Diversity, Eaton. “We are passionate about this important work because we know that it makes us stronger as individuals and as a company. We also know there is more work to do.”

The recognitions mark the latest in Eaton’s inclusion and diversity journey. For the past three years, Eaton was named a Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion, earning 100 out of 100 on the 2023 Disability Equality Index (DEI). In Mexico, Eaton was certified as a Best LGBTQ+ Place to Work and Age-Friendly Employer™ for 2024.
