Employee Well-Being & Culture

Employee Well-Being & Culture

Committed to a safe and inclusive workplace where employees can show up as their authentic self

Cultivating a positive employee experience and promoting a diverse and inclusive environment where our employees feel engaged, recognized and empowered is foundational to our ambition of being an employer of choice.


A thriving business requires an engaged, diverse, and innovative workforce. We set ourselves apart by creating a differentiated experience for our employees. Our commitment to delivering excellence for our employees means they say we are the ‘employer of choice’ and value our safe, respectful, collaborative and inclusive work culture. More specifically, our approach to employee well-being and culture includes:

Employee Engagement 

Listening to our employees enables an inclusive and engaging work environment. We strive to create opportunities for our employees to provide critical feedback. We rely on that feedback to adapt our processes in a manner that helps our people to succeed.

Employee Experience

To attract and retain an engaged workforce, we strive to provide employees with positive experiences throughout the employment lifecycle, including supporting employee well-being through our benefits and wellness programs, providing competitive compensation and supporting personal development and career progression through training, tuition reimbursement and mentorship.

Employee Recognition

Recognizing employee contributions and achievements is vital to fostering a positive work environment and that is why we offer various forms of recognition, including a peer-to-peer online recognition program, long-service awards, awards that recognize community involvement and individual performance bonuses. To recognize exemplary employees who live our values, we have also implemented the RISE (Recognize Individuals who Show Excellence) awards.

Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI)

We are committed to diversity, equal opportunity and ensuring that our employees have the ability to thrive in an inclusive environment.

At Pembina, we embrace equity, diversity and inclusion in our workforce, and recognize the value that different perspectives bring to our business. The role of Pembina's Inclusion and Diversity Advisory group is to help guide the business on steps to improve employment equity and identify barriers that may be hindering our ability to hire and retain individuals from designated groups.

Committed to diversity, equal opportunity and ensuring a safe and inclusive workplace, Pembina has established the following employee equity, diversity and inclusion targets. These targets support the work being done across the organization to advance ESG priorities, including to increase the representation of women and other underrepresented groups at all levels of the organization. Pembina is committed to achieving the following targets: 

  • 35 percent women in the overall workforce by 2025. 
  • 30 percent women in executive leadership by 2025. 
  • 45 percent overall diversity in the workforce by 2025. 
  • 40 percent overall diversity in executive leadership by 2025. 

Pembina’s EDI Definitions 

Equity is everyone having access to opportunities and resources to contribute and thrive. ​​​​​​​ 

Diversity is what makes us unique, recognizing that we are individuals with a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, abilities and identities.  

Inclusion is having a sense of belonging and feeling inspired to be our authentic selves in sharing our differences. Inclusion requires recognizing, respecting, and valuing all the ways we differ and leveraging those differences.  

Justice is identifying and eradicating inequitable barriers. 
Skills for the future

Talent development plays a critical role in the overall success of the organization, enabling and inspiring employees to excel in their roles and achieve their career aspirations. We accomplish this by providing a flexible, evolving and measurable suite of high-quality training and development opportunities and services. These are based on best practices and delivered to Pembina team members in a way that is supportive and aligns with the goals of the business. Pembina's training programs are focused on safety and policy compliance, leadership development, business acumen, and technical skills development.

Leadership development is emphasized at all levels in our organization and we pride ourselves in creating a work environment where accountabilities are clear, strong performance is expected, and results are recognized. Whenever possible, we look for ways to internally fill job postings to provide our employees with career advancement and development opportunities.
