Schneider Electric Designated 2023 Military Friendly Employer

PB 20 Schneider 400

November 15, 2022

Schneider Electric recently announced that it has earned the 2023 Military Friendly Employer designation – the fifth time that the company has been recognized with this honor. In addition, Schneider Electric has been designated a Military Friendly Spouse Employer and has being been elevated to the organization’s Bronze distinction. These awards recognize the company’s continued efforts to build a culture that embraces and empowers Service Members and their families to succeed in their careers and support others.

Schneider Electric has placed a focus on the needs of current and former members of our Armed Forces and their families by providing unique benefits to support them:

  •    –   Programs to support current Military Reservists and National Guard members to continue serving their country without having to sacrifice their careers
  •    –   Benefits, including up to 20 days of full paid leave in addition to standard PTO and salary differential programs to support their military commitments for up to six months of activation
  •    –   Support groups, including our Schneider Electric Veterans Employee Resource Network (ERN), aimed to create a culture that embraces the uniqueness of the military community and facilitates the development and retention of veterans
  •    –   Volunteer opportunities where employees can share their time, talent and experience to support numerous causes, including mentoring transitioning military service members to prepare for a civilian career

Peter Shull, Military and Veterans Affairs Program Leader, Schneider Electric
 said, “We are proud to receive the Military Friendly Employers designation for the fifth year. We are also delighted to receive the Military Friendly Spouse Award for the first time. Schneider Electric recognizes the valuable contributions of both veterans and those who continue to serve our nation through a reserve or national guard commitment. We also recognize the challenges active-duty military spouses encounter seeking and sustaining employment. It is an honor to help this talented group of folks as they support their service members. While Schneider Electric is thrilled to accept these awards, we truly view these as a tribute to all those who served and continue service to our great nation.”

Institutions earning the Military Friendly Employer designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. Schneider Electric was one of more than a thousand companies to participate in the 2023 Military Friendly survey.

“Companies earning the Military Friendly Employers designation elevate the standard for military programs globally; they have invested in substantive programs that promote positive outcomes for service members, military spouses, and veterans within their organizations,” said Kayla Lopez, Director of Military Partnerships, Military Friendly. “For these employers, hiring military is more than just the right thing to do; it’s a standard that makes good business sense.”

Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by VIQTORY with input from the Military Friendly Advisory Council of independent leaders in the military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining an organization’s survey score with an assessment of the organization’s ability to meet thresholds for Applicant, New Hire Retention, Employee Turnover, and Promotion & Advancement of veterans and military employees.

Schneider Electric will be showcased in the 2023 Military Friendly Employers in the December issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and on
