SEP Ranked a 2012 Best Place to Work

February 21, 2012

News Release – February 21, 2012

Indianapolis, Ind. — A total of 70 companies have been designated a 2012 “Best Place to Work in Indiana” for creating a productive environment in which employees feel valued, the Indiana Chamber of Commerce announced today. This is the seventh year for the Best Places to Work in Indiana program, which is presented by Comcast Business Class. Actual rankings for the companies will be unveiled at a May 3 awards dinner at the Indiana Roof Ballroom in downtown Indianapolis.

Of the 2012 honorees, 45 were repeats from last year. Two companies – Edward Jones (statewide) and Katz, Sapper & Miller (Indianapolis) have made the Best Places to Work list all seven years of the program’s existence.

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.

“Best Places to Work in Indiana not only recognizes our state’s outstanding employers, but also sets a high standard for other Hoosier companies by encouraging them to realize the importance of evaluating their own workplace,” states Indiana Chamber President Kevin Brinegar. “It is clear that a positive work environment makes employees more engaged in their job and in their company, which is a win for the entire business community.”

In addition to the May 3 awards dinner, winners will be recognized via a special section of the Indiana Chamber’s bimonthly BizVoice® magazine and through Inside INdiana Business with Gerry Dick – both of which reach statewide audiences. The 2012 Best Places to Work in Indiana awards dinner is open to the public. Individual tickets and tables are available at

All companies that participated in the 2012 Best Places to Work program receive 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.
