PECO: A top workplace powered by the positive energy of our employees – Philadelphia Business Journal – The Business Journals

At PECO, our business is energy. It lights our communities, heats our neighbors’ homes, and sparks meaningful progress. But we’re also a people business — and it all starts with our 2,900 employees, whose energy inspires us every day.
Our employees are at the heart of everything we do, from the vibrant culture they’ve helped build and maintain, to the vitally important work we do in the communities we serve. We are deeply grateful to our amazing employees for the remarkable work they do each day — and night — to serve our communities.
That’s a commitment we never take for granted. It’s why PECO is dedicated to diversity, equity, and inclusion programs that foster an inviting culture of trust, collaboration, and performance. We promote enterprise-wide mentorship that advances connections, encourages the exchange of knowledge and experiences, and supports development and growth opportunities for all employees.
Our leadership team works to further issues and conversations that are important to our employees. Our many employee resource groups (ERGs) encourage and empower our team members to put their strengths to work in support of the diversity, equity and inclusion that is central to our culture. We partner with organizations such as the Human Rights Campaign to stand up for diversity, equity, and inclusion, and to oppose efforts to exclude or discriminate against anyone.
We’re also proud of our work to be a beacon throughout the Greater Philadelphia region. We’re honored to share that for the second year in a row PECO has been selected as one of the 50 most community-minded employers in the Greater Philadelphia Region based on The Civic 50 Greater Philadelphia framework. We aim to be a leading economic and community partner whose diverse workforce both reflects and respects our customers and our communities — the towns where we live and work, too.
PECO supports regional workforce development initiatives to build the energy workforce of the future. That includes teaming up with organizations such as Philadelphia OIC, Philadelphia Energy Authority, the School District of Philadelphia, Project H.O.M.E. and community colleges to increase exposure and access to emerging job opportunities within the energy industry. It’s bolstered by powerful career preparation tools, including scholarships, internships, and training through the utility industry and our own PECO Infrastructure Academies.
Throughout our region, PECO’s contributions, sponsorships, volunteer efforts, and in-kind donations allow us to be present when our neighbors need us the most and allow us to cultivate relationships that help us further enrich the quality of life for people within our company and beyond. These are just some of the initiatives that together make PECO a truly special place to work.
