SKYCTC named as one of the “Best Places to Work in Kentucky” for ninth time



Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College (SKYCTC) was designated as one of the “Best Places to Work in Kentucky” by the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, the Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management (KYSHRM) and ClearPath Mutual Insurance Company. SKYCTC ranked 13th out of 30 median sized companies to receive this year’s BPTW designation. This is the 9th year SKYCTC has been awarded this recognition.
One hundred companies across the state made the 19th Annual Best Places to Work in Kentucky. The winner rankings were announced at an awards dinner Thursday, June 8, 2023, at the Central Bank Center (formerly Lexington Convention Center). The selection process is based on assessing the company’s employee policies and procedures and the results of an internal employee survey.

The Best Places to Work winners were divided into small, medium, and large businesses – 15 to 149 employees, 150 to 499 employees and 500 employees or more, respectively, according to a news release from the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce.
