Hiring Philosophy

Nebraska Public Power District’s overall hiring philosophy is to hire for the future and develop individuals, including for leadership and management roles. We strive to hire the best qualified person for the position, and to take advantage of candidates with local ties as much as possible, recognizing their commitment to their community and state. We are an equal opportunity employer and committed to a workforce that is as diverse as the communities we serve. All applicants have equal opportunities of employment irrespective of their race, color, religion, national origin, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, physical or mental disability, genetic information, pregnancy, or protected veteran status, except when these factors constitute bona fide occupational qualifications. NPPD will utilize the Human Resources Department to uphold these principles, and to ensure that this philosophy is administered appropriately.

NPPD also recognizes that initial hires are the foundation for future leadership. The goal is to achieve a leader placement rate consisting of 80% internal employees (with leader defined as a position with employees reporting to that position). Further, we recognize that external hires brought into leadership positions incorporate new ideas and practices at NPPD and a mix of new leaders and promotions is ideal for the continued growth and success of NPPD.
