CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. (Jan. 10, 2018) – Campbellsville University has won the Kentucky Employers’ Mutual Insurance (KEMI) Destiny Award for the second year in a row.
Campbellsville University was honored as one of the 14 winners of the KEMI Destiny Award out of 24,000 policy holders.
The Destiny Award is presented annually by KEMI to policy holders that best exemplify KEMI’s motto, “Control your own destiny.” The award symbolizes what can be accomplished when organizations work together to improve workplace safety.
Jon Stewart, the president and CEO of KEMI said, “The 2017 Destiny Award winners embrace a commitment to safety that demonstrates how much they care for the health and well-being of their employees. Safe workplaces don’t happen by accident. The organizations who earned this honor understand the value of investing in safety and partnering with KEMI to control their workers’ compensation costs, but at the end of the day what matters most is sending each employee home safely to their loved ones.”
In order to win the KEMI Destiny Award, you must be a KEMI policy holder for at least three consecutive years, must have a loss ratio at or below 45 percent, experience a modification rate of a .80 or less and to have a preferred pricing tier and annual premium of at least $30,000.
If organizations met those qualifications, they were then sent a questionnaire asking policy holders to discuss their internal safety efforts, safety culture, performance, milestones, etc. KEMI then reviews the responses and focused on the policy holder’s interaction with KEMI’s Loss Ed, Audit, UW and Claims Department.
Campbellsville University had a loss ratio of 45 percent with an experience modification rate of 0.70.
“We are honored and pleased to receive the Destiny Award for the second year in a row. This award means so much to us because we, as a university, pledge to serve our students and employees safely. Safety is a top concern for us, and we appreciate this award,” said Otto Tennant, vice president for finance and administration.
