Management Culture


Our Value-Driven Culture and Management Philosophy

Our executive management team has more than 60 years of combined experience in the power and utility sectors. We have a spirited entrepreneurial culture, balanced by centrally-driven strategy and broad corporate resources that support our business operations.

Our management philosophy is to provide clear core values and strategic direction that frontline managers and staff understand and apply based on the unique needs of our local communities. By guiding the business decisions of our people every day, this approach allows us to remain nimble and entrepreneurial.

Our Values are:

  • Family
  • Care
  • Community
  • Commitment
  • Quality
  • Efficiency

We reinforce these values through quarterly town hall meetings with the CEO and senior management, as well as through “Spirit Awards”, our employee recognition program.   We recognize and reward employees whose actions, activities, and achievements showcase our values in their everyday work, and to our customers and communities. In addition, our Power of Suggestion program rewards employees for sharing great ideas. The program is designed to build engagement and trust across the organization and, at the same time, enable our people to impact our future success.
