“We’ve been hosting the Best Places to Work program for 15 years and continue to be impressed with the quality of employers, their strong workplace cultures and best practices they have in place that both strengthen the company and the employer-employee relationship,” said Kevin Brinegar, president and CEO of the Indiana Chamber of Commerce.
Top companies in the state were determined through employer reports and comprehensive, confidential employee surveys. The Best Companies Group, which handled the selection process, oversees similar programs in 25 other states.
Out-of-state parent companies were eligible to participate if at least 15 full-time employees are in Indiana. The complete list is available on the Indiana Chamber of Commerce website.
The 2020 Best Places to Work in Indiana companies range in Hoosier employee count from 15 to more than 2,100, the chamber said.
Hall of Fame companies are those that have been named a Best Place to Work in at least nine out of 15 years.
