At Georgia Power, we attract and retain a diverse, highly skilled, fully engaged workforce that helps us provide the best level of service to our evolving customer base.
We Work As a Team
To be our best, Georgia Power maintains a culture that makes the most of our employees' different perspectives, talents, skills and backgrounds.
We all should have a workplace where we have a voice, feel valued and respected, and have opportunities to grow, advance and make a difference. At Georgia Power, our people are our most valuable resource.
We Invest in Our People
Georgia Power is dedicated to giving employees opportunities to learn, grow and advance in their careers. Our employees are continually learning and sharing knowledge to help them better understand the business and use that knowledge to make valuable contributions.
We offer resources to support and encourage professional development. In addition, all Georgia Power employees have personalized development plans.
Some highlights of our approach to employee career development:
- Training and development is an integral part of our commitment to our people and a fundamental driver of our business success.
- Employees have access to a variety of online and instructor-led learning activities via LearningSOurce, our corporate learning management system.
- Many formal and informal avenues for learning and growth are available for technical and leadership development, such as mentoring, job shadowing, and temporary and permanent developmental assignments.
- Job openings are posted on JobSOurce, our corporate job posting board, allowing all employees to view and compete for positions.
- Female and minority representation is a key strategic consideration in our company's recruitment efforts and in assigning employees to our development programs.
- Employee councils and employee resource groups also provide excellent opportunities for developing leadership skills and gaining exposure to various parts of the business and to senior leadership.
The Future of Georgia Power's Workforce
More than 70 percent of our current employee population will have the opportunity to retire over the next 10 years—which means we need to prepare to fill vacancies.
With such significant changes, our relationships with customers and other stakeholders depends on our ability to recruit and retain qualified candidates from every available labor stream.
In recent years, we have made significant strides in adding women and minorities to the overall workforce, measuring and sustaining this progress along the way and expanding our search for talent to schools and institutions where we have not traditionally recruited.
