As part of her role as a senior talent management consultant, Sue Drabic rolls out the welcome mat for Pennsylvania-based PPL employees. Drabic and other members of the Human Resources team host new employee orientation, where they spend time teaching the values and vision of PPL.
Scott Straight is pretty proud — and for good reason. In 2016, the then director of Project Engineering at LG&E and KU oversaw the final stages of a multi-year, $2.8 billion construction project to add environmental controls to four of the company’s coal-fired power plants to further reduce emissions and improve operations.
PPL Electric has invested more than $132 million in automation technology. It’s an investment that has truly paid off. Thanks to its extensive use of smart grid technology, the utility’s distribution system has become one of the most reliable in the country.
To help the birds and ensure their customers continue to have excellent and reliable service, PPL Electric, LG&E and KU, and WPD have all installed platforms in their service territories to provide safe locations for ospreys to nest. It’s part of the company’s continued commitment to conservation.
PPL redefines diversity during Celebrate Diversity Month. Diversity is a word often talked about with respect to our communities and workplaces — but what does it mean?
PPL is committed to improving the quality of life of those who live in the communities it serves. That goes beyond just providing safe, reliable power. It means supporting programs and taking action to empower local residents and give them opportunities to thrive.
The Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania take on a unique and challenging task each year, and PPL is pleased to support them with friendly training and preparation.
“The time is always right to do what is right.” That quote from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. exemplifies the spirit of 23 PPL volunteers who visited Bethlehem, Pa.’s Fountain Hill Elementary School on Friday, Jan. 13 to honor the memory of King.
Today (11/29) marks Giving Tuesday, which kicks off the charitable season when many people focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. In recognition of this day, PPL employees are banding together to make a difference with the gift of service and donation.
More than 13,000 employees live and work in the communities that we serve, from bustling downtowns and urban neighborhoods to suburban communities and rolling hills of farmland.
