13th Annual Best Places to Work in Kentucky Award Winners Announced
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Jan. 24, 2017) The Kentucky Chamber of Commerce and the Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management (KYSHRM) announce the 100 companies (in alphabetical order) that made the
13th Annual Best Places to Work in Kentucky list. The winner rankings will be announced at an awards
dinner Wednesday, April 26, 2017, at Heritage Hall in the Lexington Convention Center.
Winners from across the state have been selected in three categories: small companies of 15-149 employees, medium companies of 150-499 employees and large companies consisting of more than 500 employees (categories based on number of U.S. employees, only Kentucky employees surveyed). The selection process, managed by Best Companies Group, is based on an assessment of the company’s employee policies and procedures and the results of an internal employee survey.
The competition is a multi-year initiative designed to motivate companies in the Commonwealth to focus, measure and move their workplace environments toward excellence. Numerous studies show a strong correlation between profitability and creating a good place to work.
The Kentucky Chamber of Commerce is the only business association in the state advocating for companies of all sizes and industries across the Commonwealth. Today, the Kentucky Chamber represents 3,800 member businesses – from family-owned shops to Fortune 500 companies – that employ over half of the Commonwealth’s workforce.
Kentucky SHRM consists of 14 local chapters that provide ongoing education and leadership opportunities for over 2,700 human resource professionals throughout the Commonwealth.
