VERSAILLES, Ky. — The Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) has been named to Forbes list of America’s Best-in-State Employers. Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to determine organizations liked best by employees for its second annual ranking of America’s best employers by state.
“This is great news for all 8,500 KCTCS employees,” KCTCS President Jay K. Box said. “Because of them, KCTCS is not only one of the best in Kentucky, but also in the nation. I’m extremely pleased that we ranked number 15 in Kentucky on this list of best in-state employers.”
Employers were selected based on an independent survey of more than 80,000 U.S. employees working for companies employing at least 500 people in their U.S. operations. The surveys were administered using a series of online panels and provide a representative sample of the U.S. workforce. Surveys were conducted on a rolling basis from October 2019 to May 2020, and responses regarding the same employers were compared throughout the process, so as to account for any statistically significant variations in the results collected before and after the onset of the coronavirus pandemic.
