PAULDING — Paulding Putnam Electric Cooperative recently won first-place in the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association’s Spotlight on Excellence Awards for the “Best Individual Ad” category. The ad campaign featured four PPEC linemen during intimate moments with their families, revealing the message that they work safe so they can go home to their families every day.
The ads were run on billboards last year in Paulding and Putnam counties, as well as in the cooperative’s monthly magazines, Ohio Cooperative Living and Indiana Connection, and on social media.
“Safety is always our main priority here at Paulding Putnam Electric Cooperative because we want each and every one of our employees to make it home safe to their families every day,” said CEO George Carter. “It’s a team effort. We are a family-oriented cooperative, and this campaign really hit home as a reminder why we all need to keep safety top of mind.”
