PPL is named a Best Place to Work for people with disabilities for second straight year
For the second year in a row, PPL Corporation has been recognized as one of the best places to work for people with disabilities on the 2019 Disability Equality Index. The DEI, a joint initiative of Disability:IN and the American Association of People with Disabilities, serves as the nation’s most comprehensive annual bench marking tool for disability inclusion.
PPL earned a top score of 100% on the DEI for its commitment to creating an accommodating and inclusive environment for people with disabilities in the workplace, the community and for those the company does business with.
The DEI measures key performance indicators related to organizational culture, leadership, accessibility, employment, community engagement, support services and supplier diversity. PPL’s top score is a result of the tangible policies and practices it has put in place that promote the success of those with disabilities. This includes PPL’s annual supplier diversity conference to further expand the diversity of the businesses that provide the company with products and services and active partnerships with local universities and agencies to remove barriers to meaningful employment to those with disabilities.
PPL was recognized alongside 180 businesses representing leaders across 28 business sectors, including financial services, technology, insurance and health care.
