EnergyUnited was recently awarded a Top Workplaces 2023 honor by The Charlotte Observer.

The recipients are selected based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner, Energage LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

EnergyUnited officials credit the cooperative’s unique culture as the primary driver of employee satisfaction and its exemplary corporate performance. The culture is anchored by four principles that establish a clear standard for the way in which the cooperative chooses to do business.

“The EnergyUnited Way of doing business prioritizes four fundamental principles,” said Pam Britt, chief human resources officer at EnergyUnited. “We encourage our employees each day to be safe, to be secure, to be present and to be member-focused. Safety is always top of mind for our employees, while our members are at the heart of each of our policies, programs and initiatives.”
