What makes working at Blue Horseshoe so awesome? We could tell you a lot about our positive and upbeat work environment; the passion we have for creativity and problem-solving; and the optimism we have about our future. But in this case, we decided to let the Indiana Chamber help tell our story.
Last week, the Chamber released its list of the top 100 Best Places to Work in Indiana and Blue Horseshoe is proud to once again be part of this prestigious honor.
Indiana Chamber President Kevin Brinegar summed it up: “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 workplaces. It is clear that a positive work environment makes employees more engaged in their job and in their company, which is a win for everyone.”
According to Chamber news release, the 2017 honorees represent more than 20 cities throughout the state, with multiple winners hailing from Bloomington, Carmel, Evansville, Fishers, Fort Wayne, Michigan City, New Albany, Noblesville and West Lafayette, in addition to Indianapolis. A total of 200 companies applied to the program this year.
The actual rankings for the companies will be unveiled at a May 2 awards dinner, presented in partnership with Hylant, at the Indiana Convention Center (Sagamore Ballroom) in downtown Indianapolis.
These top companies in the state were determined through employer reports and comprehensive employee surveys. The Best Companies Group, which handled the selection process, oversees similar programs in 29 other states.
Winners were selected from four categories: small companies of between 15 and 74 U.S. employees; medium companies of between 75 and 249 U.S. employees; large companies of between 250 and 999 U.S. employees; and major companies with 1,000 or more U.S. employees. Out-of-state parent companies were eligible to participate if at least 15 full-time employees are in Indiana.
Blue Horseshoe was selected a winner in the Medium Companies category.
All companies that participated in the 2017 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.
