KISSIMMEE, Fla., August 15, 11:30 am — For the fifth time in as many years, Kissimmee Utility Authority (KUA) has been named among the region’s top 100 companies for working families. The award is given annually to progressive companies that create an environment that nurtures employees and supports the family.
The Orlando Sentinel, which compiles and prints the annual list, considers a number of areas to determine its annual rankings. KUA has been a leader, earning recognition from the judges for its “offerings of unique programs for employee families, ongoing employee reward system, wide range of benefits and options, in-house communications, and other innovative programs.”
“KUA is pleased to be recognized for providing family-friendly programs to its employees,” says Neville Turner, KUA’s vice president of human resources. “This award is a tribute to the efforts of our 289 employees who work daily to maintain our position as one of the nation’s leading electric utilities.”
The panel of judges was comprised of experts in the human resources and employee benefits arena as well as employees of the Orlando Sentinel who are knowledgeable about work/life initiatives and trends in the workplace.
