Service Awards

PG&E's success is based on the engagement and retention of talented PG&E employees. The Service Award Program recognizes and celebrates employee service milestones every five years and at retirement. Full- or part-time employees with at least five years of service are eligible to participate. If an employee leaves PG&E and returns at a later date, the most recent hire date is used to determine eligibility for service awards.

Employees that are eligible for a service award and have a company email address will receive an email congratulating them on their service milestone and instructions to select a gift. Between April and October, employees may select a gift or choose the option to make a company-determined donation to one of three preselected nonprofit organizations: Salvation Army REACH Program, California State Parks Foundation or the American Red Cross Bay Area Chapter. If a donation is elected in lieu of selecting a gift, the donated value cannot be claimed as an individual tax-deductible donation.

Service awards are an opportunity for you to publicly recognize your employee's efforts in helping PG&E provide safe, affordable and reliable service every day. As a supervisor, you will receive a personalized service anniversary award certificate for your employee. Please recognize and thank your employee for their service and present the certificate to him or her.
