Co-op Job Benefits

More than 60 years ago, electric cooperatives developed their own co-op-tailored benefits programs through the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA). We’re committed to help provide a better quality of life for you and your family though exciting career opportunities, a competitive salary and great benefits such as:

  • Medical, dental and vision.

  • Retirement, often consisting of both a 401(k) and a non-contributory defined benefit pension, as well as financial planning to make the most of your retirement.

  • Protective insurance including life, AD&D (Accidental Death & Dismemberment) and others.

  • Vacations, holidays, paid leave and sick leave.

  • Additional benefits such as 125 Plan flexible spending accounts, service awards, wellness programs and more, depending upon each co-op.

These benefits exist at every co-op, no matter the size of the co-op, and are transferable between all participating co-ops within the cooperative network. These benefits are comparable to, and sometimes more robust than, those of investor-owned utilities and other competitive companies throughout the United States.

Diversity Powers Every Co-op

Working in cooperation to create a better community is a key principle of America’s electric cooperatives. Every Touchstone Energy cooperative believes in treating all people with respect and dignity and is committed to achieving the goal of equal opportunity. Electric co-ops strive to create a work environment that fosters and supports fairness, equity and respect for social and cultural diversity, free from unlawful discrimination and harassment.

At Touchstone Energy® Cooperatives, we recognize our talented and diverse workforce as a key competitive advantage. Our business success is a reflection of the quality, passion and skill of our people. More than that, we value our diversity because it contributes to the richness and strength of our entire network. By including the ideas, opinions, perspectives and talents of all who comprise our workforce, we enrich our entire co-op network and the member-owners we serve.

It’s our goal to create a positive environment for learning, innovation, flexibility, inclusion, opportunity and growth. Touchstone Energy Cooperatives’ ability to serve more than 30 million people in 46 states across the country is enhanced by our positive work environment, a result of our investment in diversity.
