Engaging and Developing our People
An engaged workforce results in productive teams that achieve results. Our hiring, performance management and training policies ensure we attract and develop the talent we need. They also allow us to support future growth for our employees.
AltaGas has taken many steps to invest in our people and create a positive environment where they feel informed, aligned and engaged.
Our rapid growth has brought many new people into our global workforce, including 1,600 employees through the acquisition of WGL in 2018. In the past we and our subsidiaries have operated separately, but in 2019 we began taking steps to become one aligned enterprise. These efforts included new enterprise-wide programs and policies that strive to unify and strengthen our culture.
For example, in 2019, we launched a new set of core values. We also issued our first enterprise-wide employee engagement survey where employees could share their candid feedback.
The survey had a 69 percent participation rate and provided valuable insights into key engagement drivers. Our leadership team is acting on these to improve performance going forward.
Investing in training and development enables our employees to perform their duties safely, pursue new challenges within the company, and learn new skills.
