INDIANAPOLIS | Applications are being accepted for the Indiana Chamber of Commerce's annual Best Places to Work in Indiana competition.
The program honors the top companies in the state as determined through employer reports and comprehensive employee surveys.
Companies need to have at least 15 Hoosier employees to be eligible. Out–of–state parent companies are also eligible to participate if at least 15 full–time employees are in Indiana.
The application deadline is Nov. 22. This year, 100 companies were honored.
Winners in 2013 were Hollingsworth & Zivitz P.C. of Carmel in the small category; Indianapolis’ Somerset CPAs in the medium category; Sikich LLP of Indianapolis in the large category; and Indianapolis-based Microsoft Corp. in the major category.
“We had an impressive list of businesses chosen as Best Places to Work in 2013 and we want to see even more companies honored in the coming year,” said Indiana Chamber President and CEO Kevin Brinegar. “We know there are many employers – large and small – in Indiana who go above and beyond for their employees. We’d like to recognize them for that important effort.”
In 2013, a new tier of categories was unveiled due to the number of honorees and to better represent the distinct employer groups in the state. That continues, with winners to be selected from four groups: small companies of between 15 and 74 U.S. employees; medium companies of between 75 and 249 U.S. employees; large companies of between 250 and 999 U.S. employees; and major companies with 1,000 or more U.S. employees.
All participating organizations will receive an in-depth evaluation identifying strengths and weaknesses, according to their employees. Whether or not the company is selected as a Best Place to Work, the report can be used in developing or enhancing employee retention and recruitment programs.
The top Hoosier companies will be honored May 1 at the Best Places to Work awards dinner in Indianapolis. For more information, go to www.bestplacestoworkIN.com.
