Portland, Ore., May 6, 2012 – Since 2002, Energy Trust of Oregon has been delivering powerful energy solutions and benefits to Oregonians. They’re a positive and proud non-profit organization that’s passionate about their purpose and their vision. They’re also equally passionate about and dedicated to their workforce and their immense talent community that plays such a vital role in their success. It is that passion and dedication that drives the necessity to align their organization with talent management strategies aimed at the long-term continuation of success and productivity for Oregon. PLS is pleased to partner with Energy Trust to deliver key talent management initiatives that include a thorough classification and compensation analysis, a customized, comprehensive position competency library and a strategic performance management process.

Margie Harris, Energy Trust of Oregon Executive Director says, “We chose PLS to re-design our Employee Engagement Survey earlier this year and after that, knew they were the right company to turn to again when we needed additional human capital solutions. We’re experts in all things energy, they’re experts in all things talent management.”
