Region companies among 70 Indiana honorees
A record-tying 70 Hoosier companies, including some with ties to the region, are being honored this year as a Best Place to Work in Indiana by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce, which manages the statewide program.
The list released Tuesday includes Krieg DeVault LLP, which has an office in Schererville; Centier Bank, headquartered in Merrillville; Edward Jones, which has multiple offices in the region; Horseshoe Casino in Hammond; and Clifton Gunderson, which has an office in Schererville.
The company rankings will be announced at an annual awards dinner May 5 at the Indiana Roof Ballroom in downtown Indianapolis.
The top companies in the state are determined through employer reports and comprehensive employee surveys. Winners were selected from two categories: small to medium-sized companies of between 15 and 249 U.S. employees, and large-sized companies consisting of 250 or more employees nationwide. Out-of-state parent companies were eligible to participate if at least 15 full-time employees are in Indiana.
“Our goal with the Best Places to Work in Indiana program is twofold: to recognize the first-rate Hoosier employers who create an environment in which employees feel valued and to encourage Indiana companies to examine their workplace structure and how it impacts their employees,” Indiana Chamber President Kevin Brinegar said in a news release.
Centier Bank was named Best Place to Work in Indiana in 2010.
The 2011 Best Places to Work in Indiana awards dinner is open to the public. Tickets and tables are available at indianachamber.com/specialevents. A session on what makes a company a Best Place to Work will be featured as part of the May 4 Indiana Chamber’s 47th annual Human Resources Conference.
