Culture & Values

Eaton is more than the products we invent and produce – the way we do business is just as important. At Eaton, our vision and aspirational goals define who we are – both individually and as an organization – and direct our activities every day.

Eaton's Vision

Our vision is to improve the quality of life and the environment through the use of power management technologies and services.

We develop our employees by helping them succeed not just at work but in life, as well.
We delight our customers by understanding their challenges and delivering real solutions, proactively. We deliver for our shareholders by doing what's right; investors will want to own more of our company. We support our communities by providing products and solutions that improve the quality of life  and the environment; and by offering our time, talent and treasure to meet social and economic needs in the communities where we work and live.
