Electric Utility HR Metrics Community of Practice (EU-HRMG)
Electric Utility HR Metrics Group (EU-HRMG) S004-2
HR Metrics - Community of Practice  (SS004-2)
“Benchmarking the electric utility HR & Talent Acquisition Metrics and HR Issues”



EU-HRMG - Community of Practice

In 2002, at the request of Entergy, Southern Company, Dominion Resources, Exelon, Tennessee Valley Authority, JEA, LG&E Energy, Aquila and Westar Energy, the Electric Utility-HR Metrics Group (EU-HRMG) was formed to develop common HR Metrics for the electric utilities.  In the past 11-years, the Electric Utility HR & Talent Acquisition Metrics were developed and data collected for 2003-2012 (year-end data). 

The EU-HRMG has grown from the initial nine electric utilities to the following thirty-five (35) electric utilities. The raw data, annual report, scorecard and other information are the sole ownership of the participating electric utilities and are not controlled or retained by any vendor.  The group is managed by an electric utility steering committee.  Additional information and contact list information is available in the Participant Only section at

The following are the benefits in participating in this group:

  • HR & Talent Acquisition Organization Chart

  • HR & Talent Acquisition Metrics & Benchmarks

  • EU-HRMG Contact List (of all participating companies: name, title, email, phone number)

  • Surveys & Benchmarking during the year (with participating electric utilities)

  • Benchmarking Documents (2011-2014)  TO OBTAIN DOCUMENTS in the EU-HRCP DOCUMENT LIBRARY Contact Rick Habegger, Project Manager EU-HRCP at or call 919-367-9040 / 919-522-1521c
