San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) and its parent company, Sempra, have been named on the San Diego Union-Tribune’s Top Workplaces list for the second consecutive year. The ranking, which recognizes stand-out employers in San Diego County, is based on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey. This year, SDG&E and Sempra received special acknowledgment for the companies’ holistic wellness and benefits programs.

“When thinking about what makes SDG&E a great place to work, it comes down to our employees and our culture,” said Kendall Helm, Vice President of People and Culture at SDG&E. “We are privileged to have a talented workforce that brings innovative ideas to the table, consistently displays their commitment to our community and works to make our company stronger every day.”

SDG&E’s team members are committed to building a better future for the region through their efforts in safety, sustainability, and investing in the community. The company is consistently recognized for those efforts, particularly in the areas of reliability, innovation, and community impact. For example, SDG&E recently received the prestigious Public Utilities Fortnightly Innovator Award for its Wildfire Next Generation System (WiNGS), which advances wildfire prevention and safety in the region.

About the Top Workplaces Recognition

It is based solely on employee feedback from a survey administered by employee engagement technology company Energage, LLC. This is the second year that Sempra/SDG&E have participated in the Top Workplaces survey and were listed under the Large Companies category.

“Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “That’s something to be proud of. In today’s market, leaders must ensure they’re allowing employees to have a voice and be heard. That’s paramount. Top workplaces do this, and it pays dividends.”

The survey measures 15 culture drivers that Energage recognizes as critical to the success of any organization, including: alignment, execution, and connection, among others.
