An anonymous review on Fairygodboss.

Due to their widespread efforts and their team’s dedication, for two years in a row, Eversource has held the No. 1 energy and utility spot on Newsweek’s list of America’s Most Responsible Companies. What else makes the company so impressive? Let’s take a look.

An award-winning company that prioritizes diversity.

"[Eversource is] a terrific place to grow your career. Everyone matters and women make a difference and drive and lead change."

"Great opportunities for women leaders to come in and make an impact.”

These are just some of the perspectives from the talented employees at Eversource. Nationally celebrated as one of America’s Most JUST Companies for 2020, according to Forbes and JUST Capital, the company also ranks as the number one utility on the annual top-100 list, which celebrates publicly-traded American corporations for their positive impact and leadership on top priorities identified by the American people. Those include fair pay, ethical leadership, good benefits and work-life balance, among others.

Eversource also frequently appears in the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI), which recognizes companies committed to advancing women’s equality in the workplace and transparency in gender reporting. In fact, Eversource seeks to foster an inclusive workplace in all respects, offering perks like flexibility and business resource groups (BRGs) like the Women’s Business Resource Group, along with New Hire, Veterans, Multicultural, Young Professionals and Pride+Allies.

Eversource is committed to a diverse workforce, advancing their diversity and inclusion goals by focusing on initiatives that provide opportunities for women and historically marginalized communities in leadership and hiring practices. In 2020, 47.6% of new hires and promotions into leadership were women or People of Color.

Meanwhile, the National Organization on Disability (NOD) honored Eversource as a 2020 Leading Disability Employer, and the company was recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor as a HIRE Vets Medallion Award recipient for its commitment to recruiting, employing and retaining veterans two years in a row. 

Benefiting the world around them: Community and sustainability goals at Eversource.

Eversource is a community-driven organization; they are committed to the health and economic well-being of the residents, businesses and institutions they serve across Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Hampshire. 

Toward this goal, Eversource provides grants to local nonprofits and has a robust volunteer program. In 2020, the company contributed more than $6 million and 27,000 hours of volunteerism to charitable organizations.

And, in regards to Sustainability, this is at the core of Eversource’s mission, policies and activities. Clean energy is embedded in their practices, with the company embracing clean infrastructure, including solar, battery storage and more than 4,000 megawatts from offshore wind.

Electric vehicles, too, are part of this structure — the company wants to adopt a cleaner mode of transportation. Eversource has also decreased their greenhouse gas emissions by 17% between 2018 and 2020, moving toward their objective of becoming carbon neutral by 2030.

Perhaps these are some of the reasons why Eversource is one of just four energy companies on Barron’s 100 Most Sustainable Companies list, based on an evaluation of more than 230 performance indicators that address environmental, social and corporate governance issues.

“The best work is teamwork,” Eversource says. Dedicated to their employees, communities, consumers and the environment, the company seeks diverse, talented team members who collaborate and support one another every day. Today, the team is 9,000+ people strong — people who are passionate about the work they do and the environment they support.
