Roughly 14% of our employee population has self-identified as a veteran

Since our beginning, Great River Energy has actively supported our nation’s service men and women and their families.  We recognize the many sacrifices made by these individuals and their families, and we’re proud and honored to be able to do our part to give back to active duty service men and woman and veterans.

Beyond the Yellow Ribbon

In 2017, we were honored to receive official designation as a Yellow Ribbon Company.

For our veterans

  • We recognize and support the obligations employees may have to military service.
  • Our Veteran Resource Group is a diverse group of employees from all divisions of the organization. The group works to recruit, retain, and support current and former members of the Armed Forces and their families.
  • We offer a generous military leave policy that far exceeds what the law requires.
  • We partner with many local universities and technical colleges that are military friendly, veteran employment representatives throughout Minnesota and North Dakota and yellow-ribbon designated cities.
