PEC named a 2020 Top Workplace in Austin and San Antonio

Cooperative ranked among top large employers

We are extremely proud to announce that PEC has been named a 2020 Top Workplace in both Austin and San Antonio! The awards were given by the Austin American-Statesman and the San Antonio Express-News. PEC ranked among the top 20 midsize employers in the Greater Austin-area and the top 10 large employers in the San Antonio area. Winners were selected based solely on employee feedback gathered through an anonymous third-party survey and verified by an independent research firm.

“We’re incredibly honored and grateful to be distinguished as a Top Workplace,” PEC Chief Executive Officer Julie C. Parsley said. “Every day, PEC employees carry out our promise to provide safe, reliable, and low-cost power to almost a million Central Texans. I’m extremely proud that our employees believe so deeply in our critical mission, because when they’re at their best, so is PEC.”

Results were announced in the Top Workplaces special section of the Austin American-Statesman and San Antonio Express-News. In the survey, PEC employees scored the cooperative highly for having a mission with which they identify and work that provides them with a strong sense of purpose.

Employees who participated in the survey also believe they are valued and appreciated, say the cooperative supports a healthy work-life balance, and feel they are provided opportunities to reach their full potential. PEC received high scores in several areas, including competitive pay, continuing education, and employee recognition.

Over the past five years, PEC has seen historic and exponential growth in its service territory. Despite COVID-19, the cooperative is currently on track to surpass 2019’s record growth, adding an estimated 18,000 additional accounts in 2020. Attracting and retaining top talent is a key priority as we serve our growing membership.

PEC employees enjoy perks that contribute to their satisfaction that include competitive pay, an employee rewards program, biannual cash bonuses, a robust wellness program, and a 401(k) contribution match that’s nearly three times the national average.
