Bowling Green, Ky. (January 24, 2019) – Connected Nation, Inc. (CN) has again been named among the Best Places to Work in Kentucky. This is the 8th year the nonprofit has received the distinction awarded through the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce.

“One of the things that makes this honor so special is that it signals that our employees feel supported and empowered,” said Tom Ferree, Chairman and CEO of CN. “All of us at Connected Nation work to foster an environment that allows for creativity, innovation, and teamwork in an effort to tackle serious problems that affect families and communities across the U.S. To be recognized as an employer of choice means that we can continue to attract the best talent and most passionate employees to take part in our mission and, ultimately, by doing so, we help more people.”

Best Places 2019Connected Nation’s staff works directly with local, state, and federal leaders and stakeholders to identify solutions that expand the access, adoption, and use of broadband (high-speed internet) and its related technologies to all people. The company’s employees are dedicated to bringing access to all families, businesses, schools, and communities — both rural and urban.

This is the 15th year that the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce and Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management (KYSHRM) have identified the state’s best employers. The competition ranks companies in small, medium, and large categories. The selection process involves anonymous results from internal employee surveys.

Connected Nation is among 42 Kentucky companies in the small-sized employer category (15-149 U.S. employees) to receive this year’s honor. The official winner rankings within each category will be announced Tuesday, April 23, during the annual Best Places to Work in Kentucky awards banquet held at Heritage Hall in the Lexington Convention Center.
