Favorite PECO Core Value
Have Fun & Get It Done – “Having been involved in the development of our core values I can honestly say they all drive me and resonate with me. But if there is one that stands out to me for its application not just to work here at PECO, but to life in general it would be “Have Fun & Get It Done.” If we all approach work and life with an attitude that we’re willing to work hard, but that we are going to find the fun in each day, then I think that’s a great way to go through life.”
