Published: Nov 14, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 14, 2013) — The University of Kentucky Institute for Workplace Innovation (iwin) is now accepting applications for the 2014 Dr. Lee T. Todd, Jr. Workplace Research to Practice Award. The award will showcase a Kentucky company committed to improving the bottom line, employee health, and work-life fit. 

 

Organizations applying for the award are evaluated on the nine dimensions of iwin’s Innovative Workplace Model.  The recipient will receive a year-long free membership to the Innovative Employer Roundtable effective May 2014, which will include attendance at the May 2014 and October 2014 Roundtable meetings as well as other Roundtable Partner-exclusive events throughout the year.

 

Fazoli’s Restaurants, a Lexington-based organization, was the 2013 award recipient.

After receiving the award, CEO of Fazoli’s, Carl Howard said, “Fazoli’s is honored to be recognized as the recipient of the 2013 Dr. Todd Award.  Being founded and headquartered in Lexington for the past 25 years makes this award especially meaningful. We'd like to thank The University of Kentucky's Institute for Workplace Innovation for partnering with Kentucky employers and setting the bar high for future workforce development in the Bluegrass.”

 

The organizations currently on the iwin Innovative Employer Roundtable represent diverse industries, sizes, and geographic regions of Kentucky. As part of the Innovative Employer Roundtable, partners access cutting-edge research from national experts and leading thinkers and learn about emerging global trends and promising workplace practices while networking with fellow partners about critical workforce issues. In addition to learning best practices from leading Kentucky organizations, Roundtable Partners have the chance to influence and participate in iwin-led research projects that directly affect their organizations.

The award application and additional information can be found at www.iwin.uky.edu; click on the Todd Award details on the homepage. Award applicants may self-nominate or be nominated by a current Innovative Employer Roundtable Partner. The deadline for applications is Feb. 1, 2014.

 

To be eligible, applicants must have employees based in Kentucky and cannot have been a previous Roundtable Partner. Applicants may be for profit or nonprofit, of any size, and may represent any industry. Recipients of other workforce related awards/recognitions will be considered.
