"I'm constantly learning every day. It's a dynamic organization, there are always challenges and problems we are solving. I get to have a broad understanding of Alberta's electric system - you can't see that anywhere else - all the pieces and how they integrate together. It’s truly from mandate to meter, and I get to see the full spectrum."
-Morgan, then System Controller now Market Applications Specialist

Total Rewards

We strive to competitively reward our employees for the important work they do. We have a pay-for-performance program to recognize individual capabilities and achievements, and a comprehensive benefits program to support our employees and their families’ health and wellness. The AESO will also help build employees’ financial futures with a generous match to employee savings plans in a RRSP or TFSA.


We provide a comprehensive benefits program that is highly customizable to your needs and lifestyle. You can choose varying levels of health and dental coverage, health or personal spending accounts and protect yourself/gain peace of mind with life and critical insurance.

Employees enjoy generous paid time off and additional flex days, as well as programs that support their families' health and well-being. These include an Employee and Family Assistance Program, Best Doctors, and short-term and long-term disability programs.

In addition, our employees value AESO's Parental Leave and New Child Top-up programs for new parents, our student scholarship program for dependent youth furthering their post-secondary education, and our retirement transition program which offers employees approaching retirement the opportunity to gradually transition from life at the office to life at home.


We celebrate our successes! Our High Voltage recognition program allows employees to express gratitude to their peers, and celebrate and recognize each other for day-to-day achievements. Our EmPower Awards program is a peer-nominated program for individuals or groups who go above and beyond. We also recognize service milestones and retirements.
