Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
It's nice to meet you! Come work with us!
VRS team members blend diverse skills and perspectives to solve complex problems with a focus on service.
Working at VRS lets me to see beyond the financial numbers. Every time I drop my kids off at public school or watch a fire truck speed by to an emergency, I see how my work helps build financial security for the families and communities VRS serves.
I value working for an organization that makes a difference for its customers and staff. VRS genuinely cares about our members, the services we provide and the teams that make it all happen.
I love having the opportunity to create long-term income for people who work tirelessly on behalf of our children, our safety, our natural resources, and our communities. It is rewarding to invest in the things that shape the landscape of the communities that we live in.
Our IT efforts are embracing digital transformation with low-code/no-code development and virtualized computing. I love seeing women and people of marginalized groups in positions of power and a culture of inclusion.
