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.
