Total Rewards

At Xcel Energy, we care about our employees’ physical, mental and financial well-being. To demonstrate our commitment, we provide a comprehensive, market-competitive total rewards package.

Performance Based Pay

We know our employees are critical to our success. That’s why we reward them with a competitive pay package based on performance, skills and experience for contributions aligned with our values and goals.


Employees in certain jobs are eligible to earn incentive pay as part of their total compensation package. Incentives reward employees and teams for delivering results that support achievement of company strategies, create an enhanced customer experience and bring innovative solutions to the way we work.


Great work happens when employees recognize each other and work together as a team, keep each other safe, act with integrity and deliver exceptional customer service. Our employees are empowered to acknowledge fellow employees' accomplishments using our customized recognition system.
