Baker & Daniels was the only law firm employer listed among the large-sized companies. The Chamber program honors businesses that create a productive environment in which employees feel valued. Honorees were chosen through employer reports and comprehensive employee surveys. Winners were selected from two categories: small to medium-sized companies of between 25 and 249 employees and large-sized companies consisting of 250 or more employees.
"The Best Places to Work in Indiana program has two missions: to honor those exemplary employers and to encourage other Hoosier businesses to evaluate their workplace environment to see how it affects their employees," Indiana Chamber President Kevin Brinegar said. "Common sense tells us that an employee who feels valued will likely be a more dependable, productive worker, and therefore have a positive impact on the company's bottom line."
All companies that participated in the "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. The Best Companies Group, which conducts similar programs in 18 other states, produced the list with ModernThink LLC, a workplace excellence consulting firm who handled the selection process.
