Long John Silver’s has once again been named one of the Best Places to Work in the state according to the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce and the Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management. The 14th Annual Best Places to Work in Kentucky list honors 100 companies from across the Commonwealth based on an assessment of each company’s employee policies, procedures, and an internal employee survey.
“Long John Silver’s has built a family-first culture based on work/life balance, inclusivity, and recognition,” says Krista Foster, Vice President of Human Resources. “Being named to the Best Places to Work in Kentucky for two consecutive years means that our employees believe in our core values and we are on the right track.”
This is the second year the Louisville-based restaurant company has been named to this prestigious list. Employee benefits include flex hours, health initiatives, and spontaneous “ring the bell” gatherings to recognize employees demonstrating outstanding contributions to the business and the community. Recently Long John Silver’s upgraded the working environment, moving corporate headquarters to a larger and more contemporary space in Louisville. Long John Silver’s employs approximately 200 employees in the Louisville-metro area and has nearly 1,000 stores across the country.
The Best Places to Work list is a multi-year competition designed to motivate companies in Kentucky to focus, measure and move their workplace environments toward excellence. The winner rankings will be announced at an awards dinner Tuesday, April 17 at Heritage Hall in the Lexington Convention Center.
