Xcel Energy recognized among world’s best employers by Forbes magazine

Company earns the distinction for the second consecutive year

Minneapolis, Minnesota (Oct. 24, 2018)— Xcel Energy has been recognized on Forbes Global 2000 list of World’s Best Employers for the second year in a row. Among the thousands of companies considered, 500 earned a place on the list, and Xcel Energy ranked 74th in the world.

“We are pleased to receive this honor and believe it recognizes our longstanding commitment to an inclusive and engaging culture,” said Ben Fowke, chairman, president and CEO, Xcel Energy. “We continually strive to make Xcel Energy a great place to work to attract and retain the best people, who are passionate about serving customers and delivering clean, safe and affordable energy.”

The Forbes ranking is based on survey responses from employees who rate their employer by describing how likely they would be to recommend them and identifying other companies they admired. Xcel Energy is the highest-ranking U.S. electric utility on the Forbes list in 2018.

Energy Saving Tip

Turn off your lights when you leave the room—even if you'll only be gone for a moment. Contemporary light bulbs require very little energy to turn "on."

Look Up. Look Out. Stay Safe.

Be very aware of overhead power lines coming into your home. Always keep yourself, your ladders and tools at least 10 feet away.
