Favorite PECO Core Value
Have Fun and Get It Done – “A positive workplace is critical to create a sense of pride and connection. When people are enjoying what they do, they will be more engaged which will ultimately lead to a better performance. Having that sense of connection makes it fun to work hard even in stressful situations. By living this core value throughout my career, I have created lifelong friendships.”
