The Kentucky Lottery Corporation has been named as one of the Best Places to Work in Kentucky.
The designation comes from an annual program presented by the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, the Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management and the Best Companies Group. The program is intended to motivate Kentucky companies to focus, measure and move their workplace environments toward excellence.
The Kentucky Lottery was awarded the highly coveted designation in the medium-sized company category for organizations with 150 to 499 employees. The award is given based on results of an employee survey of workplace satisfaction and an evaluation of policies, practices, and demographics.
This is only the second time the Kentucky Lottery has received this honor. The organization previously received this designation in 2005.
“We’ve worked hard to create an atmosphere that is a great place to work while at the same time shattering sales records,” said Kentucky Lottery president and CEO Mary Harville. “Those two goals can successfully coexist, and we’re now an example of that. The best interest of our employees has always been top of mind for us as we’ve navigated the challenging times of the last year, and it’s reaffirming to see our employees appreciating what we’ve been able to accomplish.”
