13th Annual Best Places to Work in KY – A Huge Success!

Written by

The competition really heated up this year for the 13th Best Places to Work in Kentucky program. Participation in the process has steadily grown and this was the second year that 100 winners were recognized in our commonwealth. There were 41 recognized at the program’s inception in 2005. We’ve now grown to the level that although there are many companies who apply that are very good places to work, they just couldn’t make the list due to the 100 winner cutoff.

Of the 100 winners, 40 were in the small sized employer category (15 to 149 US employees), 29 were in the medium sized employer category (150 to 499 US employees), and 31 were in the large sized employer category (500+ employees in the US).

According to the magazine distributed at the awards event on April 26, the following statements from the survey have the biggest impact on overall employee engagement, meaning they are the top 10 drivers for Kentucky employees:



I feel I am valued in this organization.


I have confidence in the leadership of this organization.


I like the type of work that I do.


Most days, I feel I have made progress at work.


At this organization, employees have fun at work.


Overall, I'm satisfied with this organization's benefits package.


I feel I can trust what my supervisor tells me.


The leaders of this organization care about their employees' well being.


I like the people I work with at this organization.


Quality is a top priority with this organization.

At this year’s event, 5 companies were recognized as winners for 13 or more years and 15 have won 10 or more years.

If your company has not participated in the past, plan to do so this year and see what all the excitement is about! Go to www.bestplacestoworkky.com to apply and learn more.
