A Message From Our CEO
Hello, I’m Karen Fili, the President and CEO of Urenco USA (UUSA). After spending over 30 years in the commercial nuclear industry, I can confidently say that this company is one of the best places to work and I wanted to take a moment to highlight some of the key areas that make this organization great.
First, our team is a family that keeps each other safe. Safety is our number one priority on-site. Everyone at our facility, whether they’re an employee, contractor, or even a visitor has a right (and a responsibility) to stop work if it appears unsafe. Our goal is to send everyone home at the end of each day as healthy as they arrived – and our thriving safety culture is a testament to this widespread cultural value.
Another aspect I want to emphasize about our company: we focus on recognizing accomplishments both large and small. I am especially proud of the way our culture of recognition has grown over the past few years, but, even more than that, I am proud of our increased development opportunities. From offering rotational roles, to tuition reimbursement, to robust performance management processes—we ensure that our team has every opportunity to grow and succeed. Our people are a top priority.
We have a motto at UUSA: we work here, we live here, and we give here. Our team consistently dedicates their time to giving back to the community, from our annual 9/11 Day of Service project to our Richie Enrichment Science workshops—and these are just the company-led initiatives. Many of our employees dedicate their free time to local charitable organizations and several members of our team are board members for non-profit organizations.
Finally, our team is dedicated to Sustainability—not just for our organization, but for the world. At UUSA, we strive ensure energy security through the development of clean energy technologies that can power our society well into the future. We’re working towards several strategic projects that will ensure fuel is available to power new advanced and research reactors well into the future. In addition, our leadership team is constantly focused on improving our sustainable practices and diminishing our carbon footprint.
I am so proud to be a part of UUSA and I know that just a few minutes on our website will show you why. I thank you for your interest and support of our mission.
Have a safe day,
President & CEO of UUSA
