2015 Program Registration

Thanks for your interest in participating in the 2015 "Best Places to Work in Kentucky" program. Registration is simple, however we encourage you to read the Assessment Process information carefully before submitting your registration form.

To participate, all companies begin by filling out and submitting a registration form either online or by downloading the PDF Registration form and faxing it to 717-412-7307.

Once the registration information is received by Best Companies Group, companies will receive a confirmation email (which will include additional instructions) and an invoice via postal mail. There is a nominal participation fee to cover the costs associated with the evaluation process. The participation fee is based upon the size of the company and the employee survey method selected.

**Upon registration, if your primary contact does not receive confirmation via email within the next business day with an attachment of instructions, please call 1-877-455-2159 to confirm that your registration has been received. Please note that Best Companies Group primarily works through email. Please make sure that your IT team white-lists the following email address so that it will be an approved sender and just in case, please consistently check your spam or junk folder for any updates from with Best Companies Group.

Participation fees: Fees differ and are determined based upon the size of the company and the survey method chosen. Please note that we cannot combine both survey methods. Be sure to review the Eligibility page on the website to ensure that you are including the correct employees in your totals to determine pricing.

Please be aware that as part of the “Best” program, a certain threshold of employee survey responses must be received in order for the analysts to consider the survey data valid. If a company does not meet this threshold, their full consideration for the “Best” list may be jeopardized, even resulting in elimination. In the rare case a company’s response rate is extremely low, a statistically valid Employee Feedback Report will not be presented.
