PPG has been recognized by Newsweek magazine in its 2023 list of America’s Greatest Workplaces. Newsweek and research firm Plant-A Insights Group conducted an independent study of companies with 1,000 or more employees to rank their performance in empowerment of women, promotion of veterans, development of entry-level employees and support of LGBTQ associates. They also consulted 389,000 company reviews in the study to determine the results. PPG scored 4.5 out of a maximum of 5 stars, the company said.
“At PPG, we work every day to ensure that every one of our 52,000 employees around the world is supported in the work they do to bring our purpose – We Protect and Beautify the World – to life,” said Kevin Walling, PPG chief human resources officer. “It takes everyone at PPG to create a great workplace where we can all thrive and grow. This recognition showcases how our employees make it happen every day.”
PPG was named to Newsweek’s list of America’s Greatest Workplaces for Women earlier this year and was recently recognized as a “Best Place to work for Disability Inclusion” by the Disability Equality Index (DEI).
PPG has more than 16,000 employees in the U.S. It manufactures and sells paints, coatings and specialty materials for the aerospace, residential and commercial buildings, transportation and electronic industries, among others.
