Sustainability: Social


Social: Our Commitment to Our Stakeholders

We can communicate about our purpose and values, but it is our people that bring them to life. Investment in the engagement, development and safety of our workforce is paramount to our success as a business, while our social imperatives also expand the ways we give back to our communities through volunteerism and the Harvey Hubbell Foundation.

Across the enterprise and within our businesses and teams, there are a variety of ways we encourage our employees and leaders to learn – on the job, in the classroom, through self-directed learning, or through different leadership programs. We recognize and emphasize the value of continued education and training for our employees.

Employee Experience and Human Capital Matters

Our Efforts:

Hubbell is a global company committed to fostering an environment that respects and encourages individual differences, diversity of thought, and talent. We strive to create a workplace where employees feel their contributions are welcomed and valued, leading to better business outcomes and allowing employees to bring their whole selves to work every day. In 2019, Hubbell created a multi-year, enterprise-wide strategy dedicated to evolving our inclusive culture while addressing underrepresentation across our company.
In addition to Hubbell's Women Advancing Their Careers at Hubbell (WATCH) organization, in 2019 we joined Paradigm for Parity® committing alongside more than 100 other companies to achieve gender parity by 2030. We acknowledge that equality is just the first step in closing the gender gap and will be focused on creating more equitable avenues regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, LGBTQ status, parental status, and/or work status in the future.
We appreciate the values, leadership, and unique skills service members bring to the workforce, and we encourage opportunities to hire Guardsmen, Reservists, and Veterans. In 2019, we partnered with Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), pledging to fully recognize, honor, and comply with the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act. We provide our managers and supervisors with the tools they need to effectively manage employees who serve in the Guard and Reserve, and we recognize and support our country’s service members and their families, in peace, in crises, and in war.

Our Efforts:

Our company's learning platform (Hubbell University) helps build the skills and knowledge needed for our employees to succeed today and in their future. Curriculums support education and development across key areas, such as business acumen, leadership, functional skills and compliance courses. We offer access to online and instructor-led training, book summaries, videos and ever evolving content to support every learner’s style.
Hubbell provides various leadership development programs across the company for its employees, tailored to different areas of focus and improvement.
Hubbell provides market competitive compensation, health and well-being, and retirement benefits based on the countries and markets in which we operate. Our Total Rewards benefit programs are designed to attract and retain high-caliber employees and motivate market-leading performance.
In the midst of the global COVID-19 pandemic, Hubbell took numerous actions to support our employees. Hubbell invested in enhanced cleaning protocols, provision of PPE, remote work environments and introduced staggered shifts and social distancing in its locations. Hubbell issued an Emergency Paid Leave Policy for its employees as well.
