OGE VALUES & CULTURE

Why "Together" Is Our Guiding Principle

We Succeed, TOGETHER ...

when we grow together.

OGE's core values aren’t just platitudes. They’re principles deeply sewn in the fabric of our culture for over a century—you know it because you know us.

At OGE, we don’t just thrive in this place; this place thrives through us. And we carry our values and beliefs forward, from town to town. Because our company is only as strong as our communities. The only way we grow is by helping our communities grow stronger each day. TOGETHER.

Take a minute to watch a few heartening stories featuring some of our members and community partners.

Meet Rae Rice

OG&E was formed six years before Oklahoma statehood. Rae says it's an honor to represent our long-standing reputation for excellence.

Meet Rose Royal

Rose has a passion for OG&E and helps the company work for the greater good.

Value, and inclusion, and diversity are a big deal—but all of our values, all of the beliefs, are important.

-Rose Royal, Director, HR Compliance & Employee Relations, OG&E

A Culture Of Continuity

Ask an OGE Energy Corp. member about the company, and you’ll get a variety of responses. For some, it’s about supplying and delivering vital electricity that ensures safety, security and well-being. For some, it’s the responsibility to support and give back to the communities we serve. And for others, it’s innovation—delivering energy efficiently and giving each customer a variety of options to help them better manage household and business budgets.

But no matter which member you ask, one word is constant: Pride. We’re proud that the energy we deliver gives people comfort, safety and security. We’re proud that we live and work in Oklahoma and Arkansas, strengthening each community we serve. We’re proud of our record of low-cost, reliable power, at rates constantly below the national average. And we’re proud of our ability to respond safely and effectively when our communities—and communities from coast to coast—face emergency situations.

Our pride is alive in our vision, mission, values and beliefs.

We’re a healthy utility that's investing in our communities. We support them financially. We support them with more than 20,000 volunteer hours, and serve on boards for those non-profits. We’re ingrained in the communities we serve.

-Steve Merrill, Chief Financial Officer, OGE Energy Corp.

Our Members

Public Service In Action

The hours are long, and the work is challenging, but the System Construction Team at OG&E finds a way to give back, year after year – with 100 percent volunteer participation for three years running. See for yourself: Positive Energy in Public Service.

Teamwork In Action

Since the foundation of the Boathouse District, OG&E has supported rowing on the Oklahoma River. In 2015, the Head of the Oklahoma, four days of rowing events, kicked off with the OG&E-sponsored NightSprints. OG&E’s River Dogs came to win. See the results: Positive Energy in Teamwork.

Safety And Security In Action

The deadly tornadoes that swept through central Oklahoma in 2013 destroyed thousands of homes and businesses, leaving thousands without power. Our crews worked 16-hour days—every day—until power was restored. And for one resident of Moore, Okla., the work of our line crews not only provided her power, it saved her life. Share her story: Moore Positive Energy.

Our Code Of Ethics

Our values, and our commitment to integrity, are embodied in our Code of Ethics. This code contains specific guidelines to govern how we work, helping us respond appropriately in situations where the best course of action may be unclear. Our directors, officers and members maintain our reputation for integrity, always acting with the highest standards of ethical conduct.

We also require ethical conduct from those we do business with and expect our suppliers, vendors, and contractors to abide by our Code of Ethics as well. Read our Code: OG&E Code of Ethics PDF.
