For the third consecutive year, PPL has been recognized by Forbes magazine as one of America’s Best Employers.

Of the 500 large employers making the magazine’s annual list, PPL jumped 36 spots from last year to 136 and ranked ninth out of 22 utilities.

The ranking is based on how likely U.S. employees were to recommend their company as a place to work. PPL’s ranking includes survey respondents from PPL’s companies in Pennsylvania and Kentucky.

“This honor is a testament to the strong relationships that employees have built with their managers and coworkers, and the pride they have in working for the company,” said Tom Lynch, Chief Human Resources Officer for PPL. “These relationships are the cornerstone to our future success and we are committed to maintaining a workplace that nurtures productive relationships in a diverse and inclusive atmosphere.”
