Our Strategic Pillars
Our vision is to create and sustain an inclusive environment that fosters business growth. We are building an industry-leading, diverse, global and multicultural organization. Our approach to integrating inclusion and diversity into all aspects of our business is defined by these pillars:
Employees: Our focus on people is key to how we do business—employees are central to our inclusive culture.
Customers: We are working to make the electrical industry more inclusive and diverse through our external relationships and partnerships.
Suppliers: We are focused on supplier diversity, which promotes engagement, innovation and growth through diverse business relationships.
Communities: Our programs align with our commitment to being a good community partner in the places where we live, work and do business.
I&D in Action
Employees at nVent help shape and execute on our strategy. Our Inclusion and Diversity Council, made up of nVent employees who apply for seats that come open on a rotating basis, act as champions and advocates for inclusion and diversity initiatives.
Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are formed by employees who share a common interest, background or experience. They are responsible for leading our employee-driven inclusion and diversity efforts.
ERGs play a critical role in giving employees a voice and providing leadership opportunities for those who seek them out. In 2022, ERG membership increased by 17% from 2021, growing to more than 1,000 unique members.
