LEAVING IT BETTER THAN WE FOUND IT
For 130 years, Consumers Energy has served the state of Michigan—and our commitment to getting the job done right for our friends, family and neighbors has not changed.
From border to bridge, our workforce is focused on safely delivering affordable, reliable energy and valuable services to enable our customers’ quality of life while caring for the communities we serve.
This commitment is reflected in one of our guiding principles—We leave it better than we found it. We’re proud to work with Catalyst University to deliver on that commitment by growing leaders and workers for tomorrow.
By working with Catalyst to nurture strong leaders, we are setting a solid foundation for success and making connections to Michigan communities that go well beyond delivering energy.
- We understand long-term success depends on the leadership of hardworking and well-trained individuals.
- We measure our performance against peers to drive consistent, best-in-class results.
With customer satisfaction at the forefront of our business strategy, we look for opportunities to expand the breadth and depth of our talents and leverage existing skills. As a company, we work hard to run a strong business and prepare for the future. Like other great companies, this includes recognizing young talent, maintaining a commitment to well-rounded leaders and maintaining a solid plan for executive succession.
At Consumers Energy, we’re committed to powering success through volunteerism, charitable giving and education. We’re inspiring the next generation of leaders and innovators by supporting the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
We’re also committed to hiring talented co-workers with diverse backgrounds and a passion for STEM; because an inclusive workforce ensures we have the ideas, experiences and knowledge needed to meet the unique needs of our customers today and in the future.

How many people can say the work they do impacts millions of people every day?”
