We have hundreds of different jobs at Consumers Energy, but we’re all working toward the same goal. We want to make Michigan an even better place to live, work and play. For us, that means creating a sustainable energy future by employing renewable energy resources, empowering communities and protecting the environment. It’s an ambitious agenda, but we’re already making meaningful progress. Consumers Energy is ranked among the most sustainable combination utility companies in the world. Together, we’re making it happen.
Great Minds Don’t Always Think Alike
We believe in teamwork, not group think. We encourage diverse opinions and debate. We want people to challenge the status quo. Stir things up. It’s critical in today’s ever changing energy industry. We promote and hire staff who think differently, value inclusion and are passionate about their ideas. We’re working hard to build a workforce that’s more diverse and inclusive, not only in gender and ethnicity, but in experiences, ideas and talents. Our Employee Resource Groups creates an environment that fosters and values the contribution of all by supporting employees who identify as minority, woman, LGBTQ, veteran or having a disability. As an Equal Employment Opportunity company, we’re committed to the value of all. We work hard to attract, place and retain the right person for every job.
Go Ahead. Judge Us by the Company We Keep.
Moving Michigan towards a greater sustainable future is bigger than any one company. Still, we’re using whatever leverage we have to rally corporate and community partners to join us. So, we hold our suppliers to the same standards to which we hold ourselves—notably social and ethical matters, safety and corporate responsibility. We routinely scrutinize suppliers by reviewing information they provide through an online registration process.
We Cross the Finish Line Together
A team can't win without trust and respect. And we're a team.
Ethics is just good business. Our success and achievements are no accident. They’re the result of building a company upon a strong ethical foundation over more than 125 years.
We comply with the laws, rule and regulations that govern our industry. And we’ve established an open, values-based culture that encourages employees to make the right ethical choices.
We each have a role to play in creating a strong ethical culture. Executives set the proper ethical tone. Supervisors, managers and directors must model ethical behavior in the workplace, ensure employees understand and follow the rules, and create a supportive environment. Employees are responsible to know, understand and follow the rules that apply to their daily work. They also must report concerns about potential misconduct.
We have a zero tolerance policy for retaliation against those who speak up in good faith. Strong whistleblower protection laws and company policies also shield employees who report potential misconduct. There are a variety of reporting methods, including an anonymous helpline that is available 24/7 for employees and third parties.
