The Benefits of Working for Idaho Power

Our employees are vital to the services we provide for our customers and in helping us achieve our goal of providing 100% clean energy by 2045. As a commitment to our employees, Idaho Power offers a balanced, competitive and sustainable total rewards package to attract, retain and reward a quality workforce.*

Core Values

We love where we live and what we do, and we are committed to our values of safety, integrity and respect for both our customers and our employees. We consider our employees family, and our commitment to safety means we work hard to make sure everyone returns home in the same condition as when they arrived at work.

We are also committed to an inclusive environment where we are all valued, respected and given equal consideration for our contributions.

Health Benefits

We offer extensive medical, dental and vision insurance beginning on the first day of the first full month of employment. We have health benefits to fit any lifestyle, including telehealth and an employee assistance program. Full-time employees also get basic life insurance at no additional cost, with the option to increase your coverage.

We want you to stay well, so we offer 100% preventative care coverage, convenient at-work flu shots and blood draws, and more. We’re also here for you when you’re not well, offering paid time off and company-paid short-term and long-term disability.

Work-Life Balance

As an employee, you’ll get eight paid holidays and three floating holidays each year to use as you choose. You’ll also get three weeks of paid time off each year for your first five years, and it only goes up from there. We offer paid parental and bereavement leave so you can be with your family when they need you most.

Do you want to continue your education? We offer ongoing professional development opportunities and tuition reimbursement. We’re passionate about learning and innovation and want to help you grow and advance your career with us.

We love our communities and are committed to giving back to the people and places we serve. Our employee-driven Employee Community Funds help local non-profits and families in need, from funding Coats for Kids clothing drives to financial assistance for families experiencing hardship.

Our employees volunteer together and serve on boards, commissions, councils and chambers. Some even serve as emergency medical technicians, volunteer firefighters and members of search and rescue units.


We appreciate the contributions and commitment of our employees and are proud that the average years of service of our retirees is nearly 30 years!  We consider retirees a part of the Idaho Power family, and our company-paid pension plan (retirement income for life) is just one of the ways our total rewards help employees build financial security for retirement.

The pension is in addition to the company match to your 401(k), and you’ll be fully vested in the pension after only five years of service. Plus, it grows with additional years of service! Consider it one of our ways of saying thank you for all you do for us.
