NextEra Energy, Inc. announced that, for the second consecutive year, Forbes has named it one of America's Best Employers.
"At NextEra Energy, our team of 14,700 talented employees is our greatest competitive advantage," said Jim Robo, chairman and chief executive officer of NextEra Energy. "Our three core values – commitment to excellence, doing the right thing and treating people with respect – drive everything we do. We're particularly focused on pursuing innovative ways to recruit, engage, retain and reward our talented team as we continue to meaningfully invest in our nation's energy infrastructure. The fact that our own employees were surveyed as part of Forbes' evaluation process makes this honor all the more gratifying, and I couldn't be more proud of the NextEra Energy team and all they continue to accomplish on behalf of our customers and shareholders."
Working with research firm Statista, Forbes asked thousands of U.S. workers employed by large companies to determine on a numerical scale how likely they were to recommend their employer to friends or family, then asked employees to recommend other companies outside of their own.
Highlights of NextEra Energy's efforts to maintain a great place to work include:
The Forbes 2017 America's Best Employers recognition is the latest honor for NextEra Energy, which has long been committed to building a top-notch workforce and challenging its team to help solve America's energy challenges sustainably and responsibly.

In 2017, NextEra Energy for the 10th time was named A World's Most Ethical Company® by the Ethisphere Institute.
