oday’s workforce is multigenerational. With Generation Y, Generation X and baby boomers working side-by-side, the workplace is increasingly diverse. This month, we take a look at how Dominion is keeping up with a changing employee population and appreciating the unique skills of each generation.

 

Olivia Brescia, an intern with Employee Communications, interviewed students across the company for her story, “From field to fundamentals.” Hear from the interns themselves in a video vignette shot by interns and produced by Dominion’s video production team.

 

A summer at Dominion can be the start of something great, as intern Audrey Cannon discovered when she interviewed Wendy Wellener, vice president-Human Resources, and Cristie Neller, vice president-System Engineering, who both began with the company’s co-op program in college. And two articles in this month’s Story from the past show just how far women in the workplace have come.

 

For most employees, learning doesn’t stop at graduation. Each year, many decide to go back to school for a degree or certification in their industry. Kim Fields, communication specialist, is in the midst of an Executive MBA program at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond. This spring, she took a once-in-a-lifetime trip with her classmates to Greece during one of the most tumultuous times in the country’s economic history.
