Blue & Co., LLC Named To Best Places to Work in Kentucky List for Second Consecutive Year

 

CARMEL, IN (January 28, 2013) – Blue & Co., LLC has been named a "Best Places to Work" employer in Kentucky for 2013. The awards program was created in 2005 and is a project of the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, the Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management (KYSHRM) and Best Companies Group. This is the second year in a row that Blue & Co, LLC has received this honor.

 

Winners from across the state have been selected in two categories: small/medium-sized employer (companies of 25 to 249 U.S. employees) and large-sized employer (companies of 250 U.S. employees or greater). 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.

 

To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:
- Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity;
- Be a publicly or privately held business;
- Have a facility in the state of Kentucky;
- Employ a minimum of 25 full-time or part-time associates working in the state of Kentucky; and
- Must be in business a minimum of 1 year.

 

Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Kentucky. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Kentucky and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.

 

Blue & Co., LLC will be recognized and honored at the Best Places to Work in Kentucky 9th Annual Awards Dinner on Tuesday, April 16, 2013 at the Lexington Convention Center. The final rankings will be announced at the event. A magazine recognizing the winners and their final rankings will be released for statewide distribution at that time.
