10th Annual Best Places to Work in Kentucky award winners announced

FRANKFORT, Ky. (Jan. 29, 2014) – The Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management (KYSHRM) and the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce announce the winners in the 10th Annual Best Places to Work in Kentucky competition. The winner rankings will be announced at an awards dinner Thursday, April 24, 2014, at Heritage Hall in the Lexington Convention Center.

bestplacestoworkThis year is the first in which the small/medium category has been divided, creating 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 Best Places to Work in Kentucky initiative is based on FORTUNE magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work for in America” list.

The KYSHRM organization consists of 13 local chapters throughout the state, with a membership of over 1,500 human resources and business professionals across all industries.

The Kentucky Chamber of Commerce is the only business association in the state advocating for companies of all sizes and industries across the commonwealth. The Kentucky Chamber represents the interests of more than 90,000 Kentucky employers from Paducah to Pikeville.
