We strive to create a workplace where similarities, differences, and complexities are valued. By harnessing the power of diversity and inclusion, we’re able to create a workplace where each employee can personally thrive while contributing to better business outcomes. When we engage employees and listen to unique perspectives, we all benefit.
We created VET, an employee resource group who is part of our strategic initiative to recruit, retain, and advocate for military personnel and veterans. We honor years of active military service towards our PTO awards. We also provide military leave differential pay and other support programs. We also created ASPIRE, our women’s leadership initiative, to recruit, retain, develop and promote qualified, high-potential women company-wide. We are a customer focused, growth-oriented utility company that is devoted to our communities. Each year, our team members donate thousands of dollars and hours to local organizations. We’re mentoring in schools, organizing fundraisers, coaching youth sports, and serving on nonprofit boards because we care about our neighbors.
