Bardstown, Ky. (January 24, 2019) — Flaget Memorial Hospital, part of CHI Saint Joseph Health, has earned a place on the 15th Annual Best Places to Work in Kentucky list, which identifies and recognizes Kentucky’s best employers. For the second year in a row, Flaget was recognized in the medium-sized employer category for businesses with 150-499 employees. A total of 27 companies statewide were selected as winners in this category.
The Kentucky Chamber of Commerce and the Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management (KYSHRM) host the Best Places to Work initiative. 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.
“We are thrilled to once again be recognized in the list of Best Places to Work in Kentucky,” said Jennifer Nolan, president, Flaget Memorial Hospital. “It illustrates that our employees are engaged in our mission and work here because it is a great place to work. That employee satisfaction is also evident in the quality of care they provide each and every day to our patients, which is reflected in the high marks we receive for patient satisfaction.”
The Best Places to Work in Kentucky competition is a multi-year initiative designed to motivate companies in the Commonwealth to focus, measure and move their workplace environments toward excellence. Studies show a strong correlation between profitability and creating a good place to work. The initiative is based on FORTUNE magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work for in America” list.
The winner rankings will be announced at an awards dinner on Tuesday, April 23, at Heritage Hall in the Lexington Convention Center. For more details about Best Places to Work in Kentucky, visit www.bestplacestoworkky.com/.
