Mission, Core Values and Behaviors

Our mission, core values and behaviors are foundational to who we are as a company. They guide our more than 12,000 employees, and they’re crucial to achieving any business objective or strategic goal that we set. As we move forward together, our highly capable leaders and talented, dedicated employees are committed to refocusing on our core values and behaviors and rebuilding trust and credibility with all our stakeholders.

An internal investigation related to an ongoing government investigation uncovered that certain senior executives violated FirstEnergy policies and its code of conduct. As a result, those executives were terminated. When we determine that employee conduct is inconsistent with our company’s policies and values, no matter how senior the individual, we have a duty to act, and that is what we have done.
