TVA Again Ranks Among Top Five of America’s Best Employers in Tennessee

TVA’s mission is to make life better for the people we serve. We recognize that taking care of our employees first means taking better take care of customers, partners and communities – and that benefits everyone.

In 2021, TVA again ranked among the top five employers on Forbes’ list of  America’s Best Employers by State for the state of Tennessee.

“TVA’s People Advantage strategic priority is about putting people at the center of all our decisions,” says Sue Collins, executive vice president and Chief People and Communications Officer for TVA. “This kind of repeat recognition affirms we continue to move in the right direction.”

This is TVA’s third consecutive top-five ranking in Forbes’ list of best employers in the state of Tennessee and something that no other employer has done, notes Collins.  

Forbes’ list was compiled by surveying 80,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 500 employees. Surveys were conducted on a rolling basis from October 2020 to June 2021. Forbes then ranked the top 3 to 101 companies in each state, depending on the size of its workforce.

Unlike Forbes’ annual lists of the best large and midsize employers, the Best Employers by State ranking seeks to demonstrate how perceptions of companies differ from state to state based on local leadership and economies. The final list ranks the 1,328 employers that received the greatest number of recommendations in each of the 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia.

This year, TVA ranked #4 out of 80 Tennessee employers that made the list. To see the full list of America’s Best Employers by State,  click here.
