Have You Shared Your Feedback?
Survey Deadline Extended to April 22


As part of creating a strong KentuckyOne Health culture, we are seeking employee feedback through the Performance Culture Assessment (PCA) survey. Administered by HealthStream, an outside vendor, your responses are strictly confidential. The results will serve as a guide for making improvements within KentuckyOne.

Take the survey at by Monday, April 22

You can sign on by using your first and last initial and your KentuckyOne employee ID number, which can be found on your pay voucher when logging into HR/Payroll Connection. (Louisville market: this is not the same number on your badge, you must use the new KentuckyOne employee ID number on your pay voucher.)

Your identity will be kept anonymous by HealthStream. The unique employee password is used for tracking purposes only (to ensure surveys are not completed more than once) and will not be linked to your responses. 

WIN BIG! Help us meet our 80% employee participation goal (we're just around the corner from 50%). As we reach the following participation milestones, random prize drawings by HealthStream will be held:

At 50%: 100 employees will win a $25 Wal-Mart gift card
At 65%: 25 employees will win an iPad2
At 80%: 1 lucky employee will win a $750 travel gift card

Please note: ULH | JGBCC employees will not participate in the PCA in 2013.
