GE works on things that matter. The best people and the best
technologies taking on the toughest challenges. Finding solutions
in energy, health and home, transportation and finance. Building,
powering, moving and curing the world. Not just imagining. Doing.
With more than 300,000 employees and operations in over 140
countries, GE employees reflect both the local communities we serve
and the people with whom we do business. We see diversity and
inclusiveness as an essential part of our productivity, creativity,
innovation and competitive advantage.
In 2012, GE delivered solid results despite the tough economic
climate with earnings of $16.1 billion. Industrial cash flow from
operating activities for the year remained strong at over $17.8
billion. GE traces its beginnings to Thomas A. Edison, who
established Edison Electric Light Company in 1878. In 1892, a
merger of Edison General Electric Company and Thomson-Houston
Electric Company created General Electric Company. GE is the only
company listed in the Dow Jones Industrial Index today that was
also included in the original index in 1896. GE has locations in
more than 160 countries.
How we deliver results is as important as the results themselves.
GE seeks to lead in workplace and marketplace integrity by
respecting the human rights of everyone touched by our business,
and by enforcing legal and financial compliance. These commitments
are detailed in our integrity policy, The Spirit & The Letter,
which every employee supports with a signed pledge. Naturally, the
passion that our people bring to their work extends to their own
private worlds, and GE is committed to enabling a healthy balance
between the two. GE encourages our people to meet their work
commitments while balancing their own life responsibilities.
GE is committed to taking on the world's toughest challenges. In
order to fulfill that promise around big issues like clean energy
and affordable healthcare, we rely on a culture of leadership and
diversity to drive innovation and productivity. The success of
diversity at GE is a reflection of the integrity of our leadership
and builds a strong foundation for future leaders to continue our
tradition of inclusiveness. By bringing individuals, cultures and
ideas together we create a stronger company and a better
