Winners will be selected from three categories, small companies of 15-149 employees, medium companies of 150-499 employees, and large companies consisting of more than 500 employees (category based on number of U.S. employees, only Kentucky employees surveyed).The selection process is based on an assessment of the company’s employee policies and procedures and the results of an internal employee survey.

All participating companies will receive the survey feedback, enabling them to develop plans and implement necessary steps to create a great workplace and continue to improve business performance. These companies may also contact Best Companies Group for a 30-minute phone session to review the data presented in the Employee Feedback Report.
