Good Energy is a British company driven by values and purpose. Over twenty years ago, its founder, Juliet Davenport, wanted to do something that would have real and lasting value to the planet. She believed everyone had the right to clean, green energy to power their homes and businesses and how all our futures depended on it. So, she did something revolutionary.
She built a company whose sole purpose was to power the choice of a cleaner, greener future for everyone. Today, Good Energy buys renewable electricity and green gas from a wide range of sources including a community of over 1,600 independent renewable generators. Good Energy is also committed to giving its people a job to believe in. That is why the company is a ‘Living Wage’ employer; provides multiple staff benefits and offers flexible working across many roles.
The company’s values are core to how the business is run with a commitment to being straightforward, fair, inclusive and determined. Good Energy embraces people’s differences and recognises the strength they provide when working together. People who join Good Energy, either as an employee, customer, or shareholder, are playing an essential part in making clean energy the natural choice.
“I am delighted that Good Energy has been accredited as an ‘Outstanding’ place to work with Best Companies. It reflects the resilience and optimism of our fantastic team, despite it being such a challenging year. We try to ensure our values flow through everything we do; from our determination to create a cleaner, greener future for our customers, to a culture built on trusting our people, valuing their differences, listening to their views and supporting them to be their best through investment in technology, training and benefits” - Fran Woodward, People & Customer Operations Director
Throughout the pandemic employee wellbeing at Good Energy has been a top priority. They have encouraged people to continue to use their annual leave allowance, particularly through the more restricted lockdown period, to support their mental health. An additional 5 days paid leave for each employee has helped alleviate pressure for those with dependents who require care or schooling. This provision also allowed those who wished to volunteer for the NHS in their local community to do so. These 5 days were given to all employees to use either this year or next, recognising that, regardless of living situation, many have struggled with the changes the pandemic has brought about. To further support their people, Good Energy have given the option to purchase additional holidays this year and to borrow from next year’s allowance.
