Here at PPL, we fuel innovation and growth – and strengthen our company culture – by fostering an inclusive workplace where all individuals are valued and respected. Employees embrace being a part of our inclusive culture, and it’s one of the many reasons why we offer 16 different employee-led business resource groups (BRGs) across our family of companies. These resource groups provide opportunities for employees to network with coworkers across the companies, collaborate over shared experiences and volunteer in the community.
