Newark-based PSEG has launched the Power of One, a community engagement initiative that recognizes employees and citizens.
“Inspired by the tremendous spirit of volunteerism, we sought a way to increase recognition of exceptional efforts of service that take place every day,” PSEG Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer Ralph Izzo said in a news release. “At its core, service is about one person, one good deed at a time. Power of One honors and supports that service.”
Power of One comprises two initiatives. A Celebration of Citizenship is a company-wide program that recognizes employees for their volunteerism and acts of good will. The company will spotlight employees’ service and award surprise micro-grants to non-profits in their honor.
The second initiative, Bright Lights, is a program that recognizes citizens in New Jersey, Long Island and Bridgeport, Conn., who volunteer and perform good deeds in the community. This program catches people in the act of doing good and awards surprise micro-grants in their honor to nonprofit organizations.
“This is one of many programs that seeks to recognize and celebrate the good works of our employees, and we’re thrilled to extend this honor to the residents of the communities we serve the most,” PSEG Chief Diversity Officer and PSEG Foundation President Barb Short said.
