They offer their young employees the chance to achieve their Gold DofE Award to enhance both personal and professional skills, empowering them to unlock their own potential and experience exciting, meaningful careers.

Programme activities complement existing development plans and focus on developing valuable business-relevant skills such as team work, commitment, determination, communication and a positive approach to work. These skills will ultimately support the individuals and organisation to be bold and innovative and pursue the corporate mission to provide energy, efficiency and sustainability for all.

Mike Hughes, Zone President UK & Ireland at Schneider Electric, said:
“We believe the skills that our young employees learn and develop through The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award will be of great benefit to both them, Schneider Electric and throughout their careers.

In addition, The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a well-recognised gold standard of youth achievement, that every Schneider Electric colleague who takes part will carry on their CVs – and in their memories – for the rest of their careers. Supporting our young employees in this way will benefit our overall business and help them fulfil their potential.”
