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 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.
Dedication to the communities we serve is at the heart of our values. Our employees across the United Kingdom and United States bring that dedication to life, donating time and effort to help revitalize neighborhoods and improve the lives of people who call our regions home.
For nearly 100 years, PPL has been turning the power on for our customers. But, our job doesn’t end there. Serving the communities we call home is at the core of our values. This value runs deep at PPL and the spirit of volunteerism and philanthropy is part of our culture. It’s how we do business, and it’s our way of keeping our promise to support a brighter future.
A switch flips; the lights go on. A button is pressed; the local weatherman comes to life on television. A dial is turned; an air conditioner whirs to life cooling a stifling room. As each new day begins and ends, we are there, powering our customers’ lives. But we understand that our customers, and their communities, need more than just power to thrive.
