(INDIANAPOLIS) – The Indiana Department of Revenue (DOR), a two-time winner of the IndyStar Top Workplaces award, has now been recognized at the national level as a Top Workplace USA for 2021. This national recognition was announced today by Energage™.
This prestigious award is based solely on an anonymous survey of DOR employees that measures several aspects of employee engagement and workplace culture. Eighty-five percent of DOR employees voluntarily completed the scientific 26-question survey, which included questions in areas of organizational culture, commitment, communication and leadership. The results were analyzed and benchmarked by Energage™ against similar organizations.
“This national recognition of our team’s passionate commitment to our work environment, culture and to each other is simply amazing,” shared DOR Commissioner Bob Grennes. “Being recognized again, and now nationally, for what we live everyday makes us smile. And we all need smiles during these challenging times.”
DOR is comprised of over 650 dedicated team members who skillfully operate all tax administration functions that includes processing over $20 billion annually from 65 active Indiana tax types. The DOR team annually serves millions of Hoosiers, businesses, corporations and stakeholders – helping all customers accurately and effectively meet their Indiana tax obligations.
“In a year that introduced challenges that could have never been anticipated, the DOR team doubled down on positive connection, communication and engagement activities,” Commissioner Grennes added. “While effectively dealing with every challenge presented in 2020, we also increased our engagement. That is pretty special.”
DOR was first recognized as a Top Workplace by the IndyStar in 2019—making DOR the first state agency to ever receive this employee-driven award in Indiana. In 2020, DOR was awarded the distinction again, recognizing the team’s continued passion for positive engagement, leadership and culture.
DOR’s mission, to serve Indiana by administering tax laws in a fair, secure, and efficient manner, along with its vision, to be recognized as the premier tax administrator in the nation and a great place to work, serves as DOR’s guiding lights – but it is the wonderful work by the DOR team that brings these to life.
