Possibilities in People

At TransAlta, we offer meaningful challenges that foster teamwork and reward innovation and creativity.

We pride ourselves on our high performance culture. Recognizing exceptional employee ideas and efforts is a valued tradition. Our annual Presidents Awards program has been a long standing vehicle for promoting the outstanding achievements and hard work of our employees.

Recognition for your hard work starts with a competitive base pay. Our employee benefit program has been designed to recognize your unique contribution to our company's success and it allows those who perform above and beyond to earn even greater compensation through our incentive programs and recognition pay for special contributions. We also support your needs outside of the office with flexible benefit plans, a competitive vacation and flex time plan, and time off for volunteer activities.

Our employees' development is important to TransAlta; we invest in development programs and personalized plans to enable your potential. We offer a working environment where employees trust and respect each other, and feel empowered to achieve their goals. Strategic thinking, leadership, a drive for results, professional excellence, continuous development and accelerating the organization are the qualities we encourage and develop in our employees.
