"To realize our mission of delivering a safer, greener and more connected future of mobility, we must empower every Aptiv employee to exemplify behaviors that foster a culture of inclusion.
Diversity is a fact, but inclusion is a choice that unlocks innovation to fuel growth for our customers, business and people.
At Aptiv, we are passionate about building teams representative of the markets in which we operate that celebrate plurality of thought. We still have work to do on this journey, but we are motivated by continuous progress and our guiding principle:
Always do the right thing, the right way.
To build the highest-performing organization, inclusion must be infused into everything we do,
including how we select, develop and engage our talent."
When we held our annual Aptiv Innovation Awards, we hosted the event live from China, Germany and the United States simultaneously for the first time, ensuring that our entire global community was represented. The event recognizes accomplished innovators, rising stars and dynamic teams - rewarding our people for thinking and acting like owners.
We recognized one individual - from among our 22,000 engineers and scientists with the Innovator of the Year award. Don Bizon, global product line manager for Vehicle Electrification Systems, did groundbreaking work developing high-voltage, high-performance connectors and charging solutions representing eight patents and more than $700 million in revenue - truly exemplifying what it means to think and act like an owner.
Respecting our employees means thinking beyond the four walls of their workplaces and recognizing the unique circumstances of the communities in which they live. Immediately following the outbreak of war in Ukraine, Aptiv organized a committee to provide support for Ukrainian employees and contractors working for Aptiv, refugees exiting war-torn regions and those still in Ukraine who are suffering from the war. More than 7,600 Aptiv employees donated their time to help provide food, housing and medical care to those in need. In total, Aptiv helped nearly 10,000 people impacted by the war in Ukraine in 2022.
Aptiv is a founding sponsor of FIRST Robotics and continues to support competitions through the Aptiv Foundation. In 2022, Aptiv employees supported 53 robotics teams as mentors, event coordinators, judges, field reset staff and more. We sponsored eight teams of girls in Morocco, as well as a team that was among the finalists at the Arab Robotics Championship in Egypt.
Our passion for results makes us a leader in
workplace safety, as reflected in our low 2022 lost
time injury frequency rate of 0.143 cases per million
We had a 100 percent engagement rate on
preventive actions through our “safety look-across”
process, which leverages our diverse global team to
proactively identify safety practices that can be
applied to multiple locations. Every week, each
site’s Environmental, Health & Safety director
verifies whether any identified safety improvements
could be used at their site.
We focus on ensuring a culture of safety based on prevention, training, verification and risk mitigation in our manufacturing plants, technical centers and offices. Standard training includes topics such as emergency preparedness and response, chemical material management and ergonomics. Specific training on topics such as working in confined spaces, fall protection, hand protection and energy control are provided for employees as appropriate to reduce risk and protect our team members.
SAFETY IN ACTION
We are building the career architecture to continue to attract, advance, develop and retain the best people. Our workforce of 200,000 people is able to rapidly increase their technology skills by leveraging Aptiv’s partnerships with content providers and universities. More than half of our openings for management roles were filled through internal promotions in 2022.
Creating a dynamic, high-performing team means ensuring that we include a wide range of perspectives. We work hard to build a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace that is united by a common purpose and represents the communities in which we operate.
Aptiv’s employee-led women’s networks provide support, inspiration and empowerment through an inclusive forum focused on personal and professional development in every major technical center worldwide. Our goal is to achieve equal career opportunities for all genders and make Aptiv a premier destination for female talent.
Our employees completed approximately 421,000 individual training hours via in-person, remote and virtual reality learning opportunities enabled by Aptiv’s learning management system.
Aptiv’s leadership development program hosted its fifth cohort in 2022. Using cross-segment training to foster collaborative working relationships, we provided a diverse group of talented employees with multiple immersive training sessions held in different countries throughout the year to help develop the next generation of leaders.
