For the second year in a row, PPL has been recognized by Forbes magazine as one of America’s Best Employers in 2017.
Of the 500 large employers making the magazine’s annual list, PPL ranked number 172. The ranking was based on how likely employees were to recommend their company as a place of employment. The company also ranked 10th-highest of the 22 utility companies that made the list. This year’s ranking marks a significant improvement over last year, when the company ranked number 354 on the overall list and 15 out of 18 utilities.
“This honor is a reflection of our dedicated and passionate employees. We are proud to offer a stimulating and collaborative workplace where employees can thrive and grow,” said Tom Lynch, Chief Human Resources Officer for PPL.
The survey asked more than 30,000 U.S. workers employed by companies with more than 5,000 staff members how likely they were to recommend their employer to others. They also were asked to recommend companies other than their own. Employees were contacted anonymously online, and their employers were not involved.
PPL values all levels of employees and appreciates the value that multiple perspectives, backgrounds and experience adds to the organization. This range of thought makes for a great place to develop a career and leads to even better performance for our company.
“PPL focuses on recruiting and retaining talented individuals who demonstrate leadership skills and expertise in their areas of focus,” said Lynch. “We seek to foster a meaningful, respectful and inclusive culture that inspires the best in our employees.”
