Perks and Programs

We asked Ameren Corporation to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Safety: Safety is the foundation of everything we do. Our co-worker to co-worker (c2c) program helps to support our focus on safety by encouraging co-workers to coach and provide feedback to each other as part of our culture of caring.
  • Spirit of Volunteerism: Co-workers spend thousands of hours volunteering every year serving on city councils, school boards, tutoring, and helping non-profit organizations that receive support through the Ameren Corporate Charitable Trust. Company contributions support causes associated with the environment, youth and education, civic and community issues, health and human services, and arts and culture.
  • Celebrating Ameren & Each Other: Co-workers come together and celebrate our efforts and successes during company-sponsored events. Food, entertainment and educational opportunities are offered through local and regional Safety fairs, Energy Center open houses, and Diversity and Inclusion festivals. We also recognize co-workers through formal award programs such as our annual President’s Awards and Diversity and Inclusion Awards.
  • Learning & Leadership Development: Ameren provides co-workers with multiple avenues of growth through instructor-led courses, on-the-job mentoring, and targeted leadership programs. We offer nearly 50 learning and leadership opportunities, a number of university partnerships for bachelor’s completion, Executive MBA, and executive development, in addition to a robust tuition reimbursement package.
  • Total Rewards, Health & Well-Being: We are committed to offering a total rewards package that supports both our co-workers and our company's mission. Co-workers enjoy a competitive base salary and an annual incentive plan. Ameren's Total Rewards package provides financial stability through meaningful programs and financial resources to build and plan for the future, including retirement. We provide a 401(k) with a generous company match, along with a cash balance pension plan. In addition, our health plans offer free preventative care to support the well-being of our co-workers and their families, and designs which provide and protect financial stability in the event of serious illness. A professional wellness team is also available, along with access to on-site fitness centers or fitness center discounts. We offer annual co-worker well-being challenges designed to focus on physical activity, stress reduction and nutrition.
  • Nationally-Recognized Diversity & Inclusion: Fostering an environment of inclusion where each of our co-worker’s perspectives is valued is critical to carrying out Ameren’s mission. We demonstrate this commitment through our focus on career pipeline development, our support of seven co-worker resource groups, and development of strong partnerships with diverse suppliers. Ameren has been named DiversityInc's Top U.S. 7 Utilities multiple times.
  • Fostering Innovation: Co-workers innovate and think critically about how they can help lead the way to a secure energy future. Innovation projects don’t come from one team; co-workers across the workforce are always looking for new ways to improve inefficiencies, eliminate frustrations, and better serve our customers. More than 150 ideas were received as part of a 2016 summer innovation challenge and co-workers are expected to speak up when they see a better way of working.
  • All In: All In means: We Care - We Serve with Passion - We Deliver - We Win Together. These four components are embedded throughout the co-worker experience and in everything we do. We look for co-workers who are willing to be All In and we work hard to shape our culture accordingly.
