Balluff Ranked One of the Best Places to Work in Kentucky for 2016

Balluff Inc. has been recognized as the thirteenth Best Place to Work in Kentucky by the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce and the Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management (KYSHRM).

Balluff competed and came in thirteenth place in the medium-sized company category (companies with 150-499 employees) at the Twelfth Annual Best Places to Work in Kentucky awards ceremony, held on April 20th in Lexington, Kentucky. Nearly 1300 attendees joined in celebrating the 100 Kentucky companies who were recognized for their commitment to focus, measure and move their workplace environments toward excellence. The program set new records this year by celebrating 100 winners for the first time in its history.


Balluff's management team and several employees attended the awards ceremony. Shirley Wood, Balluff's longest-serving employee (and first employee of Balluff Inc. in Florence, KY), was excited to be a part of this event. "Balluff is like a family, whether it is 2 people or almost 200. I have felt supported in both my professional and personal growth and it's a testimony to how great a company Balluff is, that I have been here for 34 years. A huge congratulations to Balluff for being recognized as one of Kentucky's Best Places to Work!"


Winners from across the state were selected in three categories – small companies of 15-149 employees, medium companies of 150-499 employees and large companies consisting of more than 500 employees (categories based on number of U.S. employees, only Kentucky employees surveyed). The selection process, managed by Best Companies Group, is based on an assessment of the company’s employee policies and procedures and the results of an internal employee survey.
