Kissimmee Utility Authority is a proud sponsor of this month’s FPRA Image Awards gala in Orlando. The utility is no stranger to the Image Awards competition, having won more than 120 Image Awards and Golden Image Awards over the past two decades. In 1998, KUA brought home the state’s top PR prize—the Dick Pope All Florida Image Award—for its daily electronic employee newsletter, the KUA Morning Minute.
KUA not only leads in the public relations profession but in all areas of business, having earned the state’s second best utility safety record in 2013, Metro Orlando Economic Development Commission’s William C. Schwartz Industry Innovation Award, Kissimmee/Osceola County Chamber of Commerce’s Business of the Year Award, four time recipient of the American Public Power Association’s Reliable Public Power Provider (RP3) reliability award.
Awards also include Florida Municipal Electric Association’s Community Service Award, Orlando Business Journal’s Best Places to Work Award, Florida Hospital’s Healthy 100 Workplace Wellness Award, American Heart Association’s Gold Level Fit-Friendly Award, and a Top 25 winner in the Orlando Sentinel’s Top 100 Companies for Working Families program.
This recognition anchors our belief that employees perform at their best and are happy to do so when provided with great tools and a positive, encouraging environment. These awards are a reflection of our commitment to our employees, and ultimately the 64,000 customers we serve in Osceola County.
Congratulations to all this year’s FPRA Image Awards recipients!
