Health and Wellness

NS Power recognizes that there is more to life than work and that the key to a healthy lifestyle is striking a balance between work and leisure. Our employee health and wellness programs optimize employees’ physical and mental health through a series of initiatives and services. Complimentary health assessment clinics are in place that support and encourage a healthy balance in the lives of our employees. Employee health and wellness programs also include an on-staff physician, a disability income protection program, an employee assistance program, a wellness incentive program and various wellness clinics throughout the year.

Safety Initiatives

NS Power represents a culture of safety and is committed to providing a healthy and safe work environment for all employees. NS Power 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. Case in point: Our customer operations group recently celebrated a million hours worked without a lost-time accident.

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 NS Power employees commonly organize fundraising events and initiatives for a variety of causes.

The Employee Council

The employee council is a team of employees from different sectors of the company whose mandate is to guide initiatives and build a future where all employees work toward the same goals. All new and current employees are given the opportunities to join the employee council for a period of two years.
