The Local Government Personnel Institute (LGPI) was founded in 1971 as a joint venture between the League of Oregon Cities (LOC) and the Association of Oregon Counties (AOC). LGPI offers Human Resources and Labor Relations assistance to cities, counties, and special districts throughout Oregon. LGPI has ceased operation under its former home, LOC, and its portfolio of services has moved under the Lane Council of Government’s (LCOG) umbrella with a new name, Local Government Personnel Services (LGPS).
LGPS members rest easy knowing that knowledgeable, passionate, practical, and professional help is just a phone call or email away when it is most needed. LGPS members receive no-cost technical assistance, and a discounted rate on LGPS consulting services, including Labor Relations representation, HR assistance, pre-employment background checks, training, and so much more. Oregon’s local governments have saved thousands of dollars employing our expert advice to avert crises and to handle their everyday needs in Labor Relations and Human Resources.
Our HR experts conduct salary surveys, classification and compensation studies, executive recruitment support, write job descriptions and answer tough HR dilemmas. If you need help dealing with an employee issue, or if you’re looking for representation in union negotiations, our experienced Labor Relations consultants are your best choice. Our consultants travel across the state to assist our members whenever it’s needed.
Cities, counties, special districts, councils of government, community colleges, and other local governments all benefit from our services.
