PPL is named a Best Place to Work for peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties for sec­ond straight year

The Morning Call - - BUSINESS CYCLE -

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.
