We believe that everyone belongs in a connected nation and to achieve that goal we must continue to create a workplace where innovation and creative problem-solving can take place.”

“We are honored to once again be recognized as one of the ‘Best Places to Work’ in Kentucky. It is a pleasure and privilege to work with such a talented and dedicated team on a daily basis,” said Mandi Thomas, Manager of Human Resources for Connected Nation.
