Life at Eaton

We make work exciting, engaging and meaningful for our employees through our dedication to tackling some of the toughest power management challenges on the planet and by never losing sight of what matters.

We are confident we can deliver on our promise to improve the quality of life and the environment because of the attributes that our employees embody.

We’re ethical. Our strong moral compass guides our relationships with our customers, our partners, our planet and each other.

We’re passionate, as a team and individuals. We set the bar high and our sights higher.

We’re accountable. We say what we do, do what we say and take ownership every step of the way.

We’re efficient. With time, with money and our focus. We streamline and simplify.

We’re transparent. We make it okay to disagree, to experiment and to say what you think – good or bad.

And we’re committed to learning, to teaching and to fostering curiosity within ourselves and one another.
