The Best Places to Work in Kentucky is an annual awards program that recognizes the best employers in the Commonwealth. On March 4, the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, the Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management, and ClearPath Mutual Insurance Company released this year’s list of 100 companies.
Companies fell into either small (15 to 149 employees), medium (150 to 499 employees), or large (500+ employees) categories. However, the employers’ rankings will not be announced until the awards dinner June 17, 2021 at the Central Bank Center in Lexington.
To be featured on the list, companies must register and undergo an assessment process. Employers are evaluated based on an employer questionnaire and employee survey. The questionnaire gathers information about company policies, practices, and demographics and is worth 25% of the overall score. The survey evaluates employee engagement and satisfaction and is worth 75% of the score. Results are analyzed based on eight focus areas: leadership and planning; corporate culture and communication; role satisfaction; work environment; relationship with supervisor; training, development, and resources; pay and benefits; and overall engagement.

Some industries featured in the list included manufacturing, construction, healthcare, and banking.
Republic Bank, Central Bank, and L&N Federal Credit Union were among the recognized best places to work in the state. Each of these financial institutions were a part of a banking partnership which helped fund a track and field facility in the West End this year.
