OUR CULTURE

We keep our legacy in motion by living our core beliefs

"We act. We learn. We get better. We insist on being more than we are today. Some companies are retreating; we are moving forward to become the Digital Industrial."

Jeff Immelt

Customers determine our success

We develop deep relationships and deep empathy that fosters trust, true partnerships, and repeat businesses.

We stay lean to go fast

We keep focused on what matters most. We constantly ask ourselves: Is there a faster, simpler or better way?

We learn and adapt to win

We're not afraid to experiment or to fail. We are entrepreneurs at scale, learning, creating, and changing the game.

We empower and inspire each other

We're here to do the best work of our lives together. We speak up, challenge the status quo, and act with speed and integrity.

We deliver results in an uncertain world

We dream big, play to win, and make radically big bets that others won’t. While others wait for tomorrow, we take action.

 Crotonville is our global leadership institute, and serves at the forefront of thinking in leadership, strategy, culture, and innovation. Founded in 1956, it is the first corporate university in the United States, and the epicenter of GE culture.

Volunteerism

The ultimate measure of GE's business is found in the improvements to the lives touched by our work.

For more than a century, volunteerism has been a vibrant part of GE's culture, as both an individual employee activity as well as an organizational effort. We coordinate our resources — including products, matching gifts, grants and people — to create responses tailored to local and individual challenges.
