The Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management is proud to be a founding partner of Best Places to Work in Kentucky. The Best Places to Work in Kentucky program recognizes those employers who set an exemplary standard of excellence for both employee engagement and business success. Human resource professionals lead the business of people in Kentucky. We know what’s next and what employers can do to be prepared for changing economic and business conditions. Today’s HR professionals guide their organizations with innovative strategies to increase employee engagement and performance. HR professionals are the CEO’s strategic partner in creating an adaptive advantage for Kentucky’s employers. Kentucky SHRM, along with our thirteen local SHRM chapters, provides ongoing educational and leadership opportunities for over 2,700 human resource professionals throughout the Commonwealth. We lead our organizations and contribute to the effective strategies that impact the bottom line.

We are excited to celebrate the extraordinary efforts of 100 companies who have set the standard for creating positive working environments. As president of the Kentucky Chamber, I am pleased so many Kentucky employers hold such a strong commitment to their employees. I am especially pleased that 68 of the 100 companies to be named a “Best Place to Work” this year are members of the Kentucky Chamber. From banks, to colleges, to health care facilities, this year’s list of winners encompasses a broad spectrum of services. In order to make Kentucky’s economy thrive, we must be able not only to educate and employ Kentuckians here, but we also must entice those from out-of-state to want to work here. The Best Places program provides your company with a tool to measure workplace satisfaction each year.

Kentucky SHRM is thrilled to recognize the best of the best in Kentucky. Enjoy learning more about our top employers in the pages to come, and feel free to call on them to find out more about their successful strategies and what they are doing to be ready for what’s next.

The Kentucky Chamber is proud to offer the Best Places to Work in Kentucky program – it provides a perfect venue to celebrate the companies who are doing their part to make the Commonwealth a great place to live and work. We strive to do our part for Kentucky businesses year-round in the halls of our state’s Capitol and at our Frankfort headquarters. From advocacy, to providing current economic data, to the business education programs we offer, the Kentucky Chamber works each day to unite business and advance Kentucky.

Kentucky SHRM. Engaging People. Leading Organizations. Advancing Kentucky.

We thank you for your participation in the Best Places initiative, and congratulate you on your efforts!

Congratulations to all of the 2016 Best Places to Work in Kentucky winning companies!

Do Employees CARE About Donuts & Coffee? As an employer, do you ever wonder what motivates your employees? And for employees, do you feel as if your company tries but often fails to engage you in ways that effectively motivate? According to Gallup.com, only 32% of U.S. employees described themselves as engaged in their job in 2015 (published January 13, 2016). Realizing the importance of an engaged workforce, the Best Places to Work in Kentucky employee survey addresses the question, “what drives Kentucky employees to engage in the workplace?” We have results from thousands of surveys, and we aren’t keeping the data to ourselves— we are releasing the top 10 motivators for Kentucky employees. Even better, in addition to listing the top 10 motivators, we are always providing aggregate data on what percentage of winning company respondents positively responded to the questions versus the nonwinning company respondents.

What does this information tell us? It provides a blueprint against which employers can compare their practices. Do you create an environment in which employees feel valued? If not, what are some ways in which culture can be improved? What about leadership? Are there ways that your leadership team can invoke confidence in your employees? All participants in the Best Places to Work in Kentucky program receive their Employee Feedback Report, which includes the results of the employee survey as well as the Kentucky benchmark reports. While making it on the list is great, many participants see the survey and program as an efficient way to find out just what their employees are thinking and feeling.

Winners

Hall of Fame

We couldn't be more excited to have so many winning companies who, year after year, make the choice to participate in the Best Places to Work in Kentucky survey. And we especially want to celebrate those companies who have made our list for five or more years:

10-year winners for 2016*: Why do you think your company has made the list for 10 years?

At MCM CPAs & Advisors we have three core values: people matter, leaders inspire and excellence rules. These are at the cornerstone of what makes MCM a great place for clients, and an even better place to work. This year we celebrate 10 straight years on the Best Places to Work list, and it’s a distinction we’re proud of precisely because it’s the direct result of our people-focused culture. MCM is a place that believes in its people first, knowing that the rest will follow.

*In addition, the following companies made the 10-year list in the past: Somerset Community College and Baptist Health Louisville

For generations, Hilliard Lyons has been committed to providing clients with outstanding financial services. In order to do that, we’ve had to attract the best local talent and then retain them to provide the continuity that clients expect. We are proud of the high quality of our dedicated workforce, and retention has been made easier by the sense of purpose and collegial culture that we encourage in all our offices. Many of our employees are as close as family – celebrating achievements and sharing griefs – so we are grateful that a majority of them have been with us for each of the 10 years that Hilliard Lyons has been recognized as a Best Place to Work in Kentucky.

We have been on the Best Places to Work list for the last 10 years because we really care about our employees. The company focus is on the employee needs—not just within the organization but on a personal level. The company understands the importance of family and the outside needs of each employee. The organization plans and organizes events that allow employees to involve their families. In addition to this, the company provides a lot of recognition to our employees for doing a good job and encouraging goal setting for improvement. Overall, our company recognizes the needs for each individual, the importance of our culture, and how it relates to the organization’s overall success.

Being named one of the Best Places to Work in Kentucky for 10 years is a testament to our employees and the culture they have created at Frankfort Regional Medical Center. To make the list for such an extended amount of time validates we are doing the right things for our staff by creating an environment that is both positive and productive. Our employees are just as important as our other customers – patients, families and affiliated physicians. We listen to and respect their opinions, respond to their needs to the best of our ability, and treat them as indispensable parts of our organization.
