With unemployment continuing to decline, turnover increasing and the marketplace becoming more and more competitive, it’s critical that organizations recruit and retain highly skilled and quality talent. Talent strategies are a key component in executing company goals to deliver the highest quality products and services. An important element of talent strategies is to ensure that employees are paid competitively and in alignment with the organization’s compensation philosophy. 


The 2018 Power Community Survey of select electric utilities in the Texas area will provide data to determine if your employees’ compensation is appropriate and highlight any compensation related issues.


The survey includes the following 67 electric utility benchmark jobs:

  • Executive;

  • Leadership;

  • Supervisory;

  • Exempt Professional, and

  • Non-Exempt (including Technicians)


Data provided includes:

  • Salaries or Base Pay;

  • Recruitment and Retention;

  • Incentives; and

  • Allowances/Pay Premiums


The survey is co-sponsored by Garland Power and Light (GP&L) and Bryan
Texas Utilities (BTU).
