SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) announced today that it has been designated a 2013 Top 100 Military Friendly Employer® by G.I. Jobs magazine. This is the second time the utility has been included in the annual rankings, which are based on the strength of company military recruiting efforts, the percentage of new hires with prior military service, retention programs and company policies on National Guard and Reserve service.
PG&E is committed to training veterans for today's energy industry jobs through its PowerPathway™ career and technical training program. While open to all qualified candidates, the program has completed six veterans-only courses and plans to add two more in 2013. Of the 150 graduates of the veterans-only courses, 72 percent have been hired by PG&E or other energy industry companies. Overall, veterans have made up about 7 percent of PG&E hires since 2010.
PG&E also established a Veterans Employee Resource Group last year, designed to educate, support and develop PG&E employees with military experience, as well as their supporters. More than 260 employees have joined the group, which is open to all employees regardless of veteran status.
"PG&E values the qualities that military service imparts on veterans, including their innovative spirit and team-first mentality, as well as the technical skills they developed while in uniform," said John Simon, senior vice president of human resources for PG&E. "We're proud to provide veterans a path to energy careers through our PowerPathway program. Then, once on board at PG&E, we offer lasting support and encouragement through our employee resource group. Veterans are invaluable members of the PG&E family—and will continue to be for many generations."
Now in its 10th year, the Top 100 Military Friendly Employers® list is the premier resource for transitioning service members and spouses seeking civilian employment. The list was compiled from a data-driven survey sample of 5,000 companies whose annual revenues exceeded $500 million. Ernst & Young LLP independently tested the survey results that determined the 2013 list based upon weightings and methodology established by G.I. Jobs magazine.
PG&E's company profile, including open positions that are a fit for military personnel, can be found on MilitaryFriendly.com.
Pacific Gas and Electric Company, a subsidiary of PG&E Corporation (NYSE:PCG), is one of the largest combined natural gas and electric utilities in the United States. Based in San Francisco, with 20,000 employees, the company delivers some of the nation's cleanest energy to 15 million people in Northern and Central California.
