Saint Joseph Jessamine Earns a Place on
“Best Places to Work in Kentucky” 12th Annual List
Nicholasville, Ky. (January 22, 2016) — Saint Joseph Jessamine, part of KentuckyOne Health, earned a place on the 12th Annual Best Places to Work in Kentucky list, which identifies and recognizes Kentucky’s best employers. Saint Joseph Jessamine was recognized in the small companies category, with 15-149 employees, and was one of three KentuckyOne Health facilities that made the list statewide.
The Kentucky Chamber of Commerce and the Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management recently released the Kentucky list, presented by Kentucky Career Center and the State Information Data Exchange System. 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 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 success and creating a good place to work. The initiative is based on FORTUNE magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work for in America” list.
“To have earned a spot on Kentucky’s Best Places to Work list is hugely rewarding,” said Greg Giles, director of operations, Saint Joseph Jessamine. “Since the award is based on staff surveys as well as our policies and procedures, we know our people truly are happy to work at Saint Joseph Jessamine. When your staff is proud of their workplace, you’re better able to deliver patients the care they deserve.”
Saint Joseph Jessamine is Jessamine County’s first and only full-service, 24/7 emergency room. Saint Joseph Jessamine is part of KentuckyOne Health, the largest health system in Kentucky. In addition to Saint Joseph Jessamine, other KentuckyOne Health facilities named to the Best Places to Work in Kentucky list include Saint Joseph Martin in Floyd County and Our Lady of Peace in Louisville.
The winner rankings will be announced at an awards dinner on Wednesday, April 20, 2016 at the Lexington Convention Center.
