LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- WDRB / WMYO-TV has been named one of the "Best Places to Work" in 2014 by the Kentucky Society for Human Resources Management, in conjunction with the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce.
It is the third year in a row the station has received the award.
The process by which the companies are selected is based in part on surveys in which employees rate their workplaces.
Several WDRB employees recently spoke about why they enjoy working at the station.
"There's a sense here that we're all in it together," explained web reporter Chris Otts, who joined the station late last year. "I've needed help with countless things, and I've received it every time -- never once hearing 'not my department' or 'too busy' or 'beats me.' This is one pervasive aspect of our culture -- a virtuous cycle at its best."
"I'm glad to be part of the team here and excited about the work ahead," added Marcus Green, Web reporter. "At a time when the news industry is marked by staff cuts and uncertainty, WDRB is positioning itself for the future."
"Working at WDRB means so many things," said reporter Courtney Godfrey. "But first off, it means respect. Feeling respected by your superiors and even your colleagues makes you want to work harder and feeds the urge to create the very best product possible."
"I feel incredibly fortunate to work in such a positive environment that has a culture that is unlike any other company where I have worked," said Joanna Calabrese, a human resources manager at WDRB. "Working in Human Resources, I know that the morale of our employees is one of the most important pieces in running a successful company. Happy employees equals high productivity and quality results. WDRB truly plays this out."
