2012 Best Places to Work in Indiana Rankings Announced

May 7, 2012


May 3, 2012 (INDIANAPOLIS) — Companies raising the bar with their  workplace practices were recognized tonight at the Indiana Roof Ballroom by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce. The organization unveiled rankings for the 70 companies from throughout the state that made the 2012 Best Places to Work in Indiana list (which was released February 21). The awards dinner was presented by Comcast Business Class.

Two Central Indiana companies garnered the top honors. Law firm Hollingsworth & Zivitz, P.C. of Carmel, founded in 2004 and specializing in family law, finished first in the small to medium-sized employer category. Among large employers it was a repeat from 2011: the Microsoft Corporation, whose local Indianapolis office delivers business consulting on software and technology solutions.

At the dinner, representatives from all designated companies were presented with Best Places to Work awards of excellence. Two companies – Edward Jones (statewide) and Katz, Sapper & Miller (Indianapolis) – have made the Best Places to Work list all seven years of the program.

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.

The Best Companies Group, which handled the selection process, oversees similar programs in 21 other states. “Hollingsworth & Zivitz and the Microsoft Corporation, along with all of the organizations on the list, epitomize first-rate employers because they understand that making employees feel valued goes hand-in-hand with the success of the business,” states Indiana Chamber President Kevin Brinegar. “We are pleased to acknowledge their efforts for fostering a positive and productive work environment.”

More information about the Best Places to Work companies is available via a special section of the May/June issue of the Indiana Chamber’s BizVoice®
magazine, a statewide publication released tonight and accessible online at www.bizvoicemagazine.com.

All companies that participated in the 2012 Best Places to Work program received an in-depth evaluation identifying strengths and weaknesses according to their employees. In turn, this report can be used in developing or enhancing employee retention and recruitment programs.
