Providing an Ultimate Employee Experience
One of our greatest strengths is our employees and we are committed to creating a safe, diverse, and inclusive workplace.
We don't just fill jobs, we create careers and community. We hire men and women who represent the communities we serve and help them develop as people and professionals. We are retooling everything we do, in every part of the company, to operate more sustainably and deliver energy more reliably than ever before. We're shaping the future of energy in America – and we're doing it as a team.
A Winning Workplace

Military & Veterans
We're proud to consistently rank among the top companies in the nation at helping veterans and their families find and keep jobs in the civilian workforce.
Serving those who sacrificed so much to serve us is the right thing to do.
As a diversified energy company, we offer careers in everything from accounting and law to security and supply chain logistics.
Dominion Energy has a best-in-class paid internship program that employs more than 250 college students every year.

Employee Resource Groups
Our Employee Resource Groups enable people with shared interests and backgrounds to work together to create community, provide networking opportunities, and encourage professional development.
Training & Development
In an industry that is always changing, we need to always be learning. That's why we offer a variety of training and development opportunities for all of our employees.

Our Dominion Energy Workplace Plan is a company-wide effort to modernize our corporate work spaces that began in 2014. After all, most of us spend more waking hours at the office than we do at home. By the end of 2019, we will have upgrade workspace for thousands of our employees.Our new offices with smaller environmental footprints will qualify for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certifications.
We know that innovation can come from anywhere, so we provide opportunities for every employee to share ideas and insight. Our annual Innovation Expo recognizes the year's most creative ideas to emerge from employees as judged by the coworkers.
