‘Super’ workplaces encouraged to enter 2024 Best Places to Work in Indiana Program

INDIANA — It’s time for Hoosier companies to show off what makes their workplaces stand out. Employers can now apply for the Indiana Chamber of Commerce’s annual Best Places to Work in Indiana program.

The awards program – in its 19th year and themed “Show off your superpower!” – honors top organizations in the state as determined through employer reports and comprehensive employee surveys. Company evaluations and the selection process are administered by Workforce Research Group.

Companies must have at least 15 employees in Indiana to be eligible. Out-of-state parent companies are also eligible to participate if at least 15 full-time employees are in the state.

“The ‘Best Places’ program is an ideal way to showcase our state’s top employers and feature how they’re improving the lives of their staffs,” says Indiana Chamber President and CEO Kevin Brinegar. “Participating is an excellent way to attract top talent, enhance employee pride and ownership in your organization, as well as impress customers and clients.”

To take part, 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.

Winners are chosen 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, December 1. To apply, visit www.bestplacestoworkindiana.com.

The selected companies will be honored on Wednesday, May 8, 2024, at the Best Places to Work awards dinner sponsored by trueU at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis. Winners will also be recognized via a special supplement to the Indiana Chamber’s award-winning BizVoice® magazine and through Inside INdiana Business – both of which reach statewide audiences.

Program partners with the Indiana Chamber are Workforce Research Group, HR Indiana SHRM, Institute for Workforce Excellence, Wellness Council of Indiana, BizVoice® and Inside INdiana Business.
