As a company, we are focused on building a workforce of people who bring their best to work every day. A significant part of our engagement effort involves empowering employees to create change within the company. By engaging our employees effectively, we can increase productivity, work more efficiently and collaborate across business units to share best practices and solve problems. To increase employee engagement, we help employees understand and take advantage of the benefits available to them. For instance, we rolled out a postcard campaign in 2011 with quick, simple messages providing employees with benefits-related resources we make available to them. In 2011, we significantly boosted our investment in employee recognition, and we restructured our Council on Diversity and Inclusion so we are able to draw on the diversity of our employees to address key business challenges at Xcel Energy.

We published our first corporate responsibility report (formerly known as the Triple Bottom Line report) in April 2005, with the contents covering the 2004 calendar year, and we have published a similar report in each following year. Our report is based on Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G3 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines, the most widely used sustainability reporting framework in the world. Additionally, we incorporate the GRI's Electric Utilities Sector Supplement indicators wherever possible.
