We're passionate about sharing leading-edge knowledge to drive value for our customers and other stakeholders. At NextEra Energy, there's no shortage of learning opportunities. Whether it's taking classes through NextEra University, attending seminars, receiving informal mentoring, participating in Six Sigma training, hackathons, idea generation and innovation competitions and workshops, the quest for knowledge is evident across our company, and there's something for everyone.
For more than 30 years, NextEra Energy's Education Assistance program has helped employees pursue formal education in areas that align with the needs of our business by covering a portion of their tuition expenses and enrollment fees. Employees are eligible for assistance benefits immediately after they're hired, and may pursue undergraduate or graduate degrees, or individual college courses.
At NextEra Energy, we encourage and reward continuous improvement and high-performance. Our performance development program helps employees formally define goals, assess progress and collect constructive feedback to propel success. Employees at NextEra Energy are required to determine goals to be achieved and assessed at formal and informal points throughout the year.
