We make what matters

At Eaton, we believe
that power, whether it’s electrical, hydraulic or mechanical power -- is a
fundamental part of people’s lives. Technology, transportation, energy and
infrastructure—these are things the world relies on every day. That’s why
we are dedicated to helping our customers across the world find new ways to
manage power more efficiently, safely and sustainably. And we’re committed to
improving people’s lives, the communities where we live and work, and the planet
our future generations will depend on. Because that’s what really
matters–and we’re here to make sure it works.

While our vision is to
improve the quality of life and the environment through the use of power
management technologies and services, our culture and what we value can be
represented in six essential leadership attributes expected of all Eaton

  • We’re ethical -- we play by the
    rules and act with integrity.

    deeply about what we do. We set high expectations and we perform.

  • We’re accountable -- we seek
    responsibility and take ownership. We do what we say.

  • We’re efficient -- we value
    speed and simplicity.
