AEP Named Leader on New JUST Jobs Scorecard

Published

COLUMBUS, Ohio, April 4, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- American Electric Power (Nasdaq: AEP) is one of six companies to earn the JUST Jobs Leader designation on the JUST Jobs Scorecard released today. The JUST Jobs Scorecard is a new, data-driven tool that helps companies prioritize investments in their employees.

The scorecard helps corporate leaders assess job quality performance based on 31 data points in six key topic areas: benefits, employee wellness, hiring and stability, training and development, wages and compensation, and workforce composition. It also helps companies visualize their performance, compare data against other companies and see where there is room to improve.

"Investing in our employees is a top priority, and it's an honor to be named as a leader on the new JUST Jobs Scorecard," said Phil Ulrich, AEP's chief human resources officer. "We take pride in knowing we are a top performing company, and we will continue to provide opportunities for our employees to advance in a safe working environment."

Additionally, AEP earned a maximum score of 4 in two topic areas, employee wellness and training and development, and was named a top performer in those categories. Employee wellness data points include health and safety management systems, total recordable incident rate, employee satisfaction survey disclosure, anti-harassment training and discrimination and harassment grievance mechanism. Training and development includes measures for the average hours of training or career development employees receive per year, tuition reimbursement opportunities and apprenticeship programs.
