Atlanta Business Chronicle Best Places to Work

Georgia Transmission employees work every day to ensure a bright future for the state’s electric grid. At the same time, each of them is building a bright future for his or her career. The opportunity for a rewarding career is just one of the qualities that led the Atlanta Business Chronicle to select Georgia Transmission for the 2013 Honor Roll of the Best Places to Work in Georgia. Employees from around the state nominate employers for the distinction, and Georgia Transmission was honored to be among the ten organizations selected.

“Our employees are essential to accomplishing the mission we carry out every day of providing reliable power to our member EMCs,” said Jerry Donovan, president and CEO of Georgia Transmission. “This distinction is one that makes us especially proud. To know that our employees feel valued and that we maintain a professional environment that reinforces our commitment to them is a real honor.” 

Reviewing nearly 200 nominations, the publication editors chose companies that fostered a culture of valuing employees, allowing them to utilize their skills and recognizing and rewarding them for good work. At Georgia Transmission, employees cited leadership development programs, job rotation and cross-training as ways the company drives professional development.  Beyond a rewarding career, employees noted benefits that supported them personally such as work-life balance initiatives, flex time options, and an extensive wellness program. 

“We have a unique relationship with our owners – the EMCs – in that we work closely with them every day,” said Jerry Donovan, GTC president and CEO. “I think that’s a motivating force – that we don’t have to please faceless investors or a board of directors we never see.”
