Bowling Green, Ky. (April 18, 2018) - Connected Nation, Inc. has been named among the Best Places to Work in Kentucky. This is the 7th year that the nonprofit has received the distinction.

“It is a great honor to be recognized again as a ‘Best Place to Work,’” said Tom Ferree, Chairman and CEO of Connected Nation. “Connected Nation is a very special place; it’s full of some of the most talented, creative, and passionate people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Good employees have many more options in today’s increasingly competitive employment market. To be recognized as an employer of choice in this context shows that we are doing things right, and that is quite exciting!”

Connected Nation works at the local, state, and federal level to empower individuals and communities through increased access, adoption, and use of broadband by working to close the Digital Divide. The company’s employees are dedicated to bringing access to all families, businesses, schools, and communities.

“We were so excited to learn we’d been named as one of the ‘Best Places to Work’ in Kentucky yet again, but to then learn that we were among the top ten was thrilling,” said Mandi Thomas, Human Resources Manager for Connected Nation. “It means that we are doing the right things to support our team. We will continue to foster a workplace our employees love and future prospects will be excited to join.”

This is the 14th year that the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce and KYSHRM have identified the state’s best employers. The competition ranks companies in small, medium, and large categories. The selection process involves the anonymous results from internal employee surveys.

Connected Nation is among 39 Kentucky companies in the small-sized employer category (15-149 U.S. employees) to receive this year’s honor. The official rankings within each category were announced Tuesday, April 17 during the annual Best Places to Work in Kentucky awards banquet held in Lexington.
