Eaton: A Century on the NYSE with $20.8 Billion 2022 Revenues Serving 170+ Countries


Eaton, an intelligent power management company, recently received recognition from two esteemed organizations for its strong dedication to fostering an inclusive employee experience. Firstly, the company achieved a perfect score of 100% on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2023-2024 Corporate Equality Index (CEI). Additionally, Eaton was once again honored by Newsweek as one of America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity. The company firmly believes that embracing inclusive behaviors is instrumental in driving innovation, fostering growth, building high-performing teams, and instilling confidence in stakeholders that they are engaging with a sustainable and socially responsible entity.
The CEI, serving as an annual benchmark for workplace equality, gauges how U.S.-based companies advocate LGBTQ+-friendly workplace policies both domestically and internationally. It assesses various aspects such as non-discrimination policies, equitable benefits, corporate culture, and social responsibility. Eaton's fulfillment of all CEI criteria this year earned them the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Equality 100 Award, acknowledging them as leaders in LGBTQ+ workplace inclusion.
The evaluation for America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity relies on publicly available data, interviews with Human Resources professionals, press coverage, and anonymous online employee surveys, particularly in companies with over 1,000 employees. Researchers also considered over 21 Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), including diversity ratio, diversity reviews, and information gathered from social media platforms.
Cindy Fisher, Vice President of Global Inclusion and Diversity at Eaton, emphasized, "These recent accolades showcase our commitment to being a benchmark for inclusion and diversity within our industry. We are deeply invested in this important work, recognizing its power to strengthen us as individuals and as a company. However, we acknowledge that there is more work to be done."
These recognitions mark the latest milestones in Eaton’s ongoing journey towards inclusion and diversity. Over the past three years, Eaton has consistently been recognized as a Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion, achieving a perfect score on the 2023 Disability Equality Index (DEI). Furthermore, in Mexico, Eaton has been certified as a Best LGBTQ+ Place to Work and an Age-Friendly Employer™ for 2024.
