Nothing is more important to Entergy than the safety of its customers and employees.

  • Strong operational safety and top-tier workforce safety practices are fundamental drivers of our business performance. An accident-free work environment is a longstanding goal at Entergy. Our employees had a great safety year in 2013. Yet our contractor safety performance in 2013 did not match our employee results.

    In their best safety performance ever, Entergy employees had 79 recordable accidents in 2013, down from 118 in 2012. Recordable accidents include fatalities, lost-time accidents, restricted duty accidents and medical attentions. However, Entergy contractors had 103 recordable accidents in 2013, up from 96 in 2012. Four Entergy contractors died due to work-related injuries. We remain focused on a strong safety culture in which every worker returns home safely at the end of each workday.

We lead the industry with integrity.

We don't do the right thing to stay out of trouble or get ahead. We do the right thing because it's the right thing. Our culture demands the highest ethical standards.

  • Entergy's sound ethical principles, along with its innovative initiatives in the community, have propelled the company to the forefront of the industry.
  • Our adherence to our values has earned us respect and a reputation as a company that improves its community.
  • In 2014, Entergy Corporation was recognized by CR Magazine, America's leading voice on corporate responsibility, to its 100 Best Corporate Citizens List.

This was Entergy's fifth appearance on the list.
  • More awards and recognition.

We never, ever coast.

Entergy is good, very good at keeping the lights on and getting them back on after storms.

  • We use targeted circuit maintenance and tree trimming as two of our tools to improve reliability. Our vegetation management programs are a key factor in our reliability performance. In addition, we are taking advantage of new and emerging technology to reduce outages and their duration.
  • Entergy is recognized as an industry leader in emergency preparedness and response, which we view as a key component of reliability. Entergy Arkansas quickly and effectively restored power to customers following significant winter weather events in 2013.
  • In 2014, the Edison Electric Institute (EEI) honored Entergy with the association's "Emergency Recovery Award" and "Emergency Assistance Award." These honors recognized Entergy's exceptional power restoration efforts after a widespread winter storm and tornadoes in December 2012 and its assistance to Alabama Power after severe storms in March 2013. It was the 16th consecutive year Entergy received an EEI national storm restoration award. Entergy has received 21 awards from EEI during the past 16 years for its restoration and mutual assistance work.

We improve the quality of life in our communities.

Entergy is committed to participating in the development and improvement of the communities in which we live.

This was the 12th consecutive year the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, which measures the sustainable value companies provide to stakeholders, included Entergy on either its World or North America index or both.
  • In 2013, Entergy was named one of the nation's Top 10 utilities in economic development by Site Selection magazine for its 2012 efforts to help attract more than $26 billion in projects that could create up to 10,000 jobs in its service region. It was the sixth straight year Entergy's utilities were named to the magazine's list.

We empower with trust and respect.

What's at the heart of a great place to work? At Entergy, we believe it is the trust and respect that we place in our employees. The company values and respects its employees and works hard to make sure they know it.
