Kissimmee Utility Authority received a 2023 Top Workplace award by the Orlando Sentinel’s Top Workplaces program. The list includes companies from ten Central Florida counties and is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC.

“We’re extremely honored to be recognized with this prestigious award,” said KUA President and General Manager Brian Horton. “It’s particularly rewarding since this acknowledgment was a direct result of feedback from our dedicated and talented workforce.”

The confidential survey uniquely measured 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization, including engagement, empowerment, value, respect and support. KUA staff members were officially recognized during an awards luncheon Friday, Sept. 29, in Orlando. KUA joined the area’s top 116 dynamic companies, which made the list based on achieving high employee satisfaction and being committed to making their company a great place to work. The list was published in the Sunday edition of the Orlando Sentinel, to view the list online click here.

“Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “That’s something to be proud of. In today’s market, leaders must ensure they allow employees to have a voice and be heard. That’s paramount. Top Workplaces do this and it pays dividends.”

Founded in 1901, KUA is Florida’s sixth largest community-owned utility, powering 90,000 customers in Osceola County, Florida. For more information, visit
