April 22, 2020
NMPP Energy was named among the “Best Places to Work” in the medium-sized business category for 2020 in Lincoln, Neb., by Woods Aitken LLP, the Lincoln Journal Star and the Lincoln Human Resources Management Association.
The four member-driven organizations of NMPP Energy serve nearly 200 member communities in six Midwest and Rocky Mountain states. The organizations are:
- Nebraska Municipal Power Pool (utility-related services)
- Municipal Energy Agency of Nebraska (wholesale electric supply)
- National Public Gas Agency (wholesale natural gas supply)
- ACE - Public Alliance for Community Energy (retail natural gas supply)
Collectively, the organizations subscribe to the core philosophies of local control and working together to provide reliable, cost-based energy and energy-related services.
The Best Places to Work program, which started in 2013, recognizes local companies that, through a third-party administered employee survey, rank their respective companies as being the best places to work. The areas surveyed include workplace environment, leadership direction, culture and management practices.
“This award is a reflection of the passion our team has to serve our member communities,” said NMPP Energy Executive Director/CEO Bob Poehling. “We work for our members – small municipalities that come together to work as a group in finding solutions to move forward. Our team is extremely passionate and proud to assist them.”
NMPP Energy was recognized for its workplace culture that incorporates five elements into its daily work: Member-driven focus, customer service, economic value, professional values and staff work-life balance. Through its culture, NMPP Energy team members grow, laugh, rise to challenges, thrive and share immense purpose, passion and pride in assisting its member communities.
