Two local companies cited among state's top employers

Two Owensboro-based companies will be among the winners at the sixth annual Best Places to Work in Kentucky awards dinner April 21 in Lexington.

The Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management State Council and the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce announced Thursday that Independence Bank and the Green River Area Development District are among the 33 small and medium-sized companies to be honored.

Independence Bank made the list for the fourth consecutive year and GRADD for the second straight year.

Owensboro-based Atmos Energy had made the list for five consecutive years but was not on it this year.

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 designed to "motivate companies to focus, measure and move their workplace environments toward excellence," a news release said.
