Military-Friendly Employer

Our business is only as good as our people, and at Entergy, we are fortunate to work with some of the best in the business. This includes employing thousands of veterans and those currently serving in the U.S. Armed Forces across our business. These dedicated, disciplined and skilled employees provide a diverse perspective that is a strategic advantage for our business, and we implement programs and initiatives to promote an inclusive culture for them.

Entergy's executive leadership team and representatives of our Veterans Employee Resource Group recently accepted the 2016 Pro Patria Award from the U.S. Department of Defense's Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve.

In 2015 Entergy organized a Veterans Employee Resource Group, an employee-led group coordinated across the company, to help achieve our mission to create sustainable value for our stakeholders -- owners, customers, employees and the communities in which we operate -- by capturing veteran-employee input on programs such as recruiting, onboarding, retention, work/life balance and leadership development.

Compensation and Reemployment
Serving your country should never come at the expense of job security. Entergy's military leave and pay policies comply with all federal and state laws regarding the rights of uniformed service members, and our uniformed service members are also eligible for differential payments under Entergy's Military Leave Policy. This pay supplements an employee's military pay so that he/she does not suffer a loss in pay while engaged in military service. And those called away for duty can rest assured regarding their reemployment with Entergy following military leave. For service that does not exceed five years, these employees are eligible to be reemployed in either the position they were in prior to service, or a position they would have attained of like seniority, status and pay.  

In 2016, Entergy won the 2016 Pro Patria Award from the U.S. Department of Defense’s Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve for promoting supportive work environments for members of the National Guard and Reserve. And among 2,400 nominees, Entergy was also named one of the 30 finalists for the 2016 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award, the highest recognition given by the Department of Defense’s Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve.
