Women make up 50% of our senior management team, and 43% of our Board of Directors. We believe achieving pay parity is a significant step toward gender equality in the workplace. Sunrun became the first national solar company to achieve this milestone after committing to The White House Equal Pay Pledge in 2016 under the Obama Administration. In 2018, Sunrun achieved 100% pay parity for its employees, regardless of gender, who perform similar work in similar locations across the United States.
Diversity and Inclusion
Sunrun’s mission to create a planet run by the sun relies on making solar inclusive. We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer and a welcoming place for everyone without consideration of race, color, religion, ethnicity, citizenship, political activity or affiliation, marital status, age, national origin, ancestry, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, sex or gender, or any other basis protected by law. We seek to attract, develop, advance and retain the best diverse talent through the use of job boards and paid campaigns.
Our employee resource groups foster a culture of inclusion and belonging. These groups include Sunrun Women’s Network, Blacks & Allies, Latinx & Allies, Asians & Allies, LGBTQ & Allies, and Veterans & Allies.
Employee Benefits & Satisfaction
Our competitive benefits program provides employees with the means to ensure the health and financial wellbeing for themselves and their families. Full-time employees are eligible for the Sunrun benefits package, which includes medical, dental, vision, life, and disability insurance. It also includes an employee stock-purchase plan (ESPP) and a 401(k) retirement plan, with a company match feature.
We believe it is important for our employees to spend time with their families and focus on personal well being. In addition to 11 paid holidays and traditional paid time off, Sunrun offers two paid volunteer days per year, one annual flexible holiday, and 10 days of paid leave for active military service. Additionally, Sunrun provides 10 weeks of paid parental leave for all employees who have been at the company for more than a year.
To measure employee engagement and satisfaction, we conduct a company-wide survey twice a year.
