NRG Power Value: Safety and Well-Being

Jun 30, 2020 12:00 PM ET

Safety and Well-being are part of the core values at NRG and have always been a priority. As many team members adjust to a new home workplace dynamic, this value has taken on strengthened meaning. Working behind the scenes is benefits analyst, Janelle C., who supports many of our employee programs, including those related to wellness.

Janelle collaborates with vendors and helps employees take advantage of programs that support their overall mental and physical well-being. One example is the Virgin Pulse Global Challenge, known to NRG employees as the GET MOVING Challenge, with teams currently competing across the company. Last year’s winning team was from the Limestone Generating Station in Texas.

Janelle says some of her personal go-to wellness activities include “taking my dog for long walks, staying connected with friends via Zoom, and stepping away from my desk for short meditation sessions.” 

A home fitness app is a new tool she’s embraced. “It creates a personalized fitness training program based on your goals and the equipment you have readily available.” Currently, all NRG employees have free access to the app.

Beyond helping our employees stay active and healthy, Janelle’s ideal summer day includes the sun, the beach, and a good read.
