Other Employee Information


Workforce Information
  • The vast majority of Dominion Energy's employees are full time.
  • Dominion Energy used subcontracted workers throughout 2018 to assist during outages and to provide supplemental staffing support.
  • The company employs a variety of people with education up to the Ph.D. level.
Dominion Energy's compensation and benefits philosophy
  • Dominion Energy's compensation philosophy is designed to reward employees for their contributions toward achieving the company's objectives. The foundation of the compensation program is to provide fair and equitable pay that is externally competitive, internally aligned, compliant and supports the achievement of our business strategy by attracting, retaining and engaging employees.
  • Dominion Energy's benefits philosophy is to provide a fair, equitable and market competitive total benefits package. Our benefit programs are designed to offer choice in acknowledgement of our diverse demographic workforce as well as to support our employees' physical and financial well-being. We review our benefits strategy annually to ensure we evolve in response to marketplace changes and employee preferences.
Alignment of CEO pay
  • Consistent with our objective to reward strong performance based on achievement of short-term and long-term goals, a significant portion of compensation for our CEO and other executives is tied to the achievement of performance goals or is stock based. Approximately 90% of Mr. Farrell's targeted 2018 total direct compensation was performance-based. This compares to a significantly lower percentage of total variable pay for our non-officer employees. The exact percentage of variable pay under the company's annual incentive plan (AIP) for non-officer employees varies by job title, and payout under AIP is contingent on achieving certain diversity, environmental and sustainability, operational and safety goals.
