PBI Bank, Inc. announced today that it was recently named as one of the Best Places to Work in Kentucky for 2015 in the medium-sized companies category. The awards program was created in 2005 and is a project of the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, the Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management (KYSHRM) and Best Companies Group.

This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Kentucky, benefiting the state's economy, its workforce and businesses.

To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:
  • Have at least 15 employees working in Kentucky;
  • Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity;
  • Be a publicly or privately held business;
  • Have a facility in the state of Kentucky; and
  • Must be in business a minimum of one year.

Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Kentucky. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25 percent of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience, which was worth approximately 75 percent of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Kentucky and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.

"To be rated a great place to work by our associates is a tremendous honor," said John T. Taylor, PBI Bank President and CEO. "How our associates feel about working here is very important to our team because they are responsible for driving PBI Bank forward every day. Having this distinction is also beneficial in that it helps us attract talented individuals to come and work with our organization."

PBI Bank will be recognized and honored at the Best Places to Work in Kentucky 11 th Annual Awards Dinner on Tuesday, April 14, 2015 at Heritage Hall in the Lexington Convention Center. The final rankings will be announced at the event. A magazine recognizing the winners and their final rankings will be released for statewide distribution at that time.
