Our Culture

Our Culture

When you join our team, you’re immediately offered a wide range of opportunities that help give back to our communities and that will help you grow in your career and plan for the future.

Safety Culture

We are committed to providing a healthy and safe work environment for all employees. Our employees value safety first in everything they do and recognize that a safe workplace comes only with hard work and dedication. When you come to work with us you join a workplace that strives on the motto that there is no job that cannot be done safely and “everybody goes home safe everyday”.

Employee Benefits

We provide a comprehensive range of benefits for eligible employees, which can include health insurance, life insurance, disability insurance, parental leave, pension plans and stock ownership.

Health & Wellness

We are committed to providing a healthy workplace and offering a range of services, programs and incentives that will help employees take charge of their well-being. Our team members have access to regular health screenings and immunization clinics. We organize quarterly health challenges - friendly competitions that encourage positive, healthy habits. We have a fitness center for employees in the Emera building near our headquarters, and other locations have their own gyms on premise.

Celebrating Diversity

We see the inclusion of diversity of our team as one of our strengths – and something we continue to focus on and strengthen. Join our Diversity and Inclusion network and participate in one of many celebrations and education sessions.

Developing our Team and Leaders

Leadership isn’t just for senior team members – it’s for all employees. Our employees assisted in creating Leadership Competencies which provide clarity on the kinds of skills, behaviors and actions that are expected of every team member in order to advance our business and deliver results. To build on this even further, Nova Scotia Power employees participate in an e-learning platform for our entire business, offering team members self-directed learning on a wide range of topics.


Charitable Opportunities

Our employees are strong supporters of the communities where we live and work. Through our Good Neighbour Charitable Fund we make significant contributions to charitable organizations across the province. When you come to work with us, you’ll also find that Nova Scotia Power employees regularly organize fundraising events and initiatives to support the communities where we live and work.
