Employee Ownership

The phrase “Dependable People-Dependable Performance” is more than a tagline at DP Electric. We believe that your word and following through on your commitments are essential to establishing a solid reputation and repeat work. We believe that investing in our team and the culture of the organization first is imperative to giving our clients an exceptional experience, which in turn creates more opportunities for our team. Every person on our team, from the apprentice getting started in the trade to a vice president, has an impact on the organization’s success. 

With becoming an employee-owned company in 2021, this belief is now stronger than ever. Our team of employee-owners gets to share in the company’s financial success through the long-term benefit of the Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP).

DP University

DP Electric’s internal employee development program, DP University is designed to address actual development opportunities across Safety, Quality, Production and Leadership Development. All DPU courses are developed by using data generated from performance reviews. This data is then aggregated and analyzed by Education, Safety and Talent Development Leadership to develop courses that overcome these employee developmental needs.
