In May of 1875, the first-ever Kentucky Derby occurred at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky, in front of approximately 10,000 fans. The one and one-quarter mile-long race occurs on the first Saturday of May every year and remains the longest continuously held sporting event in America. The Derby is also the third most bet on sporting event globally. Many individuals seek out that trifecta or super trifecta bet, the three perfect winners. The Derby is often referred to as the “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports” as it represents the best of the best when it comes to horse racing. The Derby is a long-time tradition of CEO Molley Ricketts family, and Molley continues that tradition every year with her team at Incipio. 

Although the horse and jockey are the ones crossing the finish line, it takes a team of individuals to get the duo to the Derby itself and the coveted winner’s circle. Much like your organization, many things go into a winning Derby team. From solid leadership, common goals, communicated strategy, the right team members, and an environment that works for everyone’s personal and professional goals.

At Incipio, we partner with our clients to assist in cultivating that winning team. We assist in helping you create a work culture that revolves around recognition, appreciation, synergy amongst team members, checks and balances for equality and fairness, and makes working for any organization fun by ensuring the best people are in the right positions. At Incipio, we take the experience that our leadership team and partners have and create what we call the HR Trifecta for your organization. 


The key to any winning team is to hire the right people for the correct positions. Hiring in itself is not a complex task; effective hiring that leads to higher retention and long-term success of your organization is a little more involved. Partnering with Incipio can streamline your hiring process using expertise, market insight, and access to a more extensive candidate base, leaving you and your team more time to focus on their core tasks and business objectives. Our recruiting consulting begins with identifying your short and long-term goals and the skills you will need to meet those goals. Recruiting must be included in the overall strategy of any business.


Ensuring that Human Resources is a part of your business strategy and not an afterthought is crucial. We understand that no two businesses are the same. Incipio will partner with you and adapt to your company’s needs, covering a broad spectrum of services, including day-to-day HR functions to long-term strategic initiatives such as compliance, performance management, succession planning, recruiting, training, and development. Designing a strategy to utilize the right services with our guidance will allow your organization to focus on your core business functions while giving Incipio the reins to tap into our knowledge and experience to serve your HR and compliance needs.


Our specialty is to partner with you to create a culture that empowers your team members to be the best they can be, adopt a sense of pride in their employer, and become more productive and happier. We work with organizations side by side to create a space where team members feel appreciated, recognized, challenged, connected, and fulfilled in their place of employment. We can also create custom programs that will help your company thrive. Have you measured the cost of turnover for your organization?
