NonProfit Times 2022 Best Nonprofits to Work For

Each year, the NonProfit Times honors the 50 best nonprofits and associations operating across the United States. Today, the NonProfit Times named the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) to its annual Best Nonprofits To Work For list, ranking SEIA 9th for its strong support of employees and its commitment to fostering a positive, supportive workplace culture during the pandemic and beyond.

The Times recognized SEIA for its generous parental leave program, bright office space, quarterly staff awards program, flexible work location options, progress on its diversity programming and cultural audit, as well as the expansion of paid holidays and a generous, ever-improving benefits package for its employees.

The Times conducted a thorough assessment and organization-wide survey to gather information about SEIA’s organizational policies, practices, work environment, and overall employee satisfaction. The survey results found that SEIA leaders consistently invested in strong relationships with its 49 employees and provided them with the freedom to make decisions — two key factors that the Times uses in judging the awards.

Under the leadership of SEIA president and CEO Abigail Ross Hopper, the organization has created a transparent and welcoming work environment for its employees. Since becoming CEO in 2017, Ms. Hopper has worked hard to professionalize the organization and make it a world-class trade association. She has led SEIA through impressive milestones both externally and internally, including increasing its yearly operating budget by 29%.

Under Ms. Hopper’s leadership, SEIA has also prioritized diversity, equity, inclusion and justice (DEIJ) in its workplace and across the entire industry, another aspect of SEIA’s work environment that The NonProfit Times noted when making their decision. SEIA’s DEIJ Leadership Council has worked to make the solar industry more diverse, equitable, inclusive and just, while ensuring that SEIA reflects those values in its own workplace.

SEIA was recognized alongside other major national nonprofits and associations, including Girls Who Code, the Alzheimer’s Association, and the Better Business Bureau. SEIA thanks the NonProfit Times for recognizing its efforts to be a great workplace for all employees.

Earth Day 2022: America’s Clean Energy Progress Under Threat

This year, while legislation is stalled, the very same administration imperiled its goal with an investigation that will not only impede solar and storage growth, but cause the United States to go backward on its climate goals.
