We have worked hard to create a work environment in which everyone feels that they belong"
"We have worked hard to create a work environment in which everyone feels that they belong," said CEO of TE Connectivity, Terrence Curtin. He adds, "An inclusive environment allows everyone to feel more comfortable sharing their ideas and that collaboration only serves to foster innovation, which is key to the future growth of our company." This year, 686 of the largest businesses operating in America earned the highest ranking and designation as a Best Place to Work.
Protecting LFGBTQ employees and customers
"These companies know that protecting their LGBTQ employees and customers from discrimination is not just the right thing to do – it is also the best business decision," said Human Rights Campaign (HRC) President, Alphonso David. In December, TE also received a perfect score in the HRC Equality MX survey, earning the distinction as a ‘Best Place to Work for the LGBT Community’ in Mexico for the third year in a row.
TE is committed to engaging with its employees around the world and making TE a great place to work in by emphasising on the development and training aspects, creating a safe work environment, embracing diversity and inclusion, and supporting uncompromising values.
