These are the best places to work in Indiana

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Four businesses took top honors as the best places to work in Indiana.

The Indiana Chamber of Commerce honored a record 125 companies at this week’s 2018 Best Places to Work in Indiana celebration dinner.

These four businesses took home the top spot in their respective categories:

  • Hanapin Marketing, a Bloomington-based digital marketing company – small category (between 15 and 74 U.S. employees)
  • E-gineering, a technology consulting firm on the northeast side of Indianapolis – medium category (between 75 and 249 U.S. employees)
  • Blue 449, an open source media company from Indianapolis – large category (between 250 and 999 U.S. employees)
  • Edward Jones, an investment firm with branch offices throughout the state – major category (1,000 or more U.S. employees)

This is the first time Hanapin Marketing has appeared in first place while Blue 449 is a repeat winner from last year. E-gineering and Edward Jones have taken the top spot in the past, with E-gineering winning for the third time and Edward Jones for the fifth.

The companies honored Thursday night range in size from 16 employees to more than 1,700. Out-of-state parent companies were eligible if at least 15 full-time employees worked in Indiana.

Organizers used employer reports and comprehensive employee surveys to come up with the list. Participating companies receive an in-depth evaluation to identify strengths and areas of improvement.

Businesses with the Hall of Fame designation have been named a Best Place to Work at least 60% of the time in the program’s 13-year history. Twenty organizations made that list, with Edward Jones and Katz, Sapper & Miller having made the list every year.

Businesses earn the Pinnacle designation by finishing first in their category three or more times in a five-year period. The four Pinnacle companies in the program’s history are Edward Jones, Hollingsworth & Zivitz, P.C., Microsoft and Sikich.
