(INDIANAPOLIS) — Companies with an Indiana presence can now apply for the Indiana Chamber of Commerce’s annual Best Places to Work in Indiana program.

In its 14th year, this program honors 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.

Winners are selected in 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.

The application deadline is Friday, November 16. To apply, visit www.bestplacestoworkin.com.

Employers complete a questionnaire and employees fill out an anonymous engagement and satisfaction survey. All companies that apply will receive a thorough report analyzing strengths and opportunities for improvement in their workplace culture.

The Best Companies Group, which oversees similar programs in other states and large cities, is responsible for the selection process.

The selected companies will be honored on Tuesday, April 30, 2019, at the Best Places to Work awards dinner at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis. Winners will also be recognized via a special supplement to the Indiana Chamber’s bimonthly BizVoice® magazine and through Inside INdiana Business with Gerry Dick – both of which reach statewide audiences.

Program partners with the Indiana Chamber and BizVoice® are Inside INdiana Business with Gerry Dick, the Best Companies Group, HR Indiana SHRM and Wellness Council of Indiana.

The Best Places to Work in Indiana dinner sponsor is Ivy Tech Community College; platinum sponsor is Moser Consulting; silver sponsor is Smithville. Additional sponsorships are available by contacting Tim Brewer at [email protected] or call (317) 496-0704.

Top Best Places to Work in Indiana winners for 2018 in the small, medium, large and major categories were: Bloomington-based Hanapin Marketing; technology consulting firm E-gineering of Indianapolis; Blue 449, an Indianapolis-based open source media company; and investment firm Edward Jones, with branch offices throughout the state.
