Our culture

Together we work as one AEMO to be an adaptive, commercial and consumer-focused organisation. Our approach is to collaborate with and listen to our stakeholders and adapt to changing industry needs. We deliver and take accountability for our core obligations as we manage our way through the energy transition.

Character. Connection. Commitment. Our values are our ethical compass when we face the uncertainties of the future. Our values articulate the core set of beliefs and behaviours that guide how we work. These values are central to delivering on our purpose, vision, and strategic priorities.

Diversity, equity and inclusion

Equal by 30 banner

AEMO is committed to supporting all Australians and to grow AEMO to be more reflective of the wider community we serve. We aim to empower all of our people by actively addressing the barriers to equality and creating a level playing field. Our aspiration is to be most inclusive workplace in the energy sector.

AEMO’s current Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Strategy has a focus on the areas of gender diversity, inclusion, flexibility, disability, reconciliation and Indigenous employment.

We are proud to offer hybrid working arrangements to support our people’s desire for flexibility in where they work. We know that having choice is empowering and supports the wellbeing of our people.

Safety, health and wellbeing

Safety, health and wellbeing is important in everything we do at AEMO. It means we take care of ourselves and each other and speak up if we don’t feel things are okay.

We support our people through a wide range of initiatives that proactively increase awareness and reduce injury and illness.

Volunteering and community programs

Giving back to the community means a lot to us, and we’ve devised a volunteering initiative that goes above and beyond most organisations. AEMO offers up to four days’ leave per year for employees to spend time at an agreed charitable organisation.

What our employees say about AEMO

Empowering our employees

“It’s definitely empowering when your manager and your organisation respects and trusts you to get your work done and your job done. It enables you to manage your own work load in a way that suits your own lifestyle. It leads to a lot of positive benefits for yourself and for the organisation. You want to do what’s best by AEMO because you know they are doing what’s best by you.”

Katelyn Rigden, Analyst, Reserve Capacity

Just go for it!

“I feel very proud, not just because of being a woman, but being an engineer who has been able to pick up a new challenge and deliver a service to this business. My message to all women in energy is that our gender has nothing to do with our capability in the technical world. If you enjoy the work, then just go for it!”
