Winning companies ranged in employee count (at the time of application) from 15 to more than 2,300. Out-of-state parent companies were eligible to participate if at least 15 full-time employees are in Indiana.
Organizations that have displayed sustained excellence during the program’s history are also awarded Best Places to Work in Indiana Hall of Fame and Pinnacle designations.
Hall of Fame companies are those that have been named a Best Place to Work in Indiana at least 60% of the time in the program’s history. Two companies – Edward Jones and Katz, Sapper & Miller – have made the Best Places to Work list all 16 years of the program.
The Pinnacle designation is reserved for those that have finished first in their category three or more times in a five-year period. The five Pinnacle companies in the program’s history are: Edward Jones, Hollingsworth & Zivitz, P.C., JA Benefits, Microsoft and Sikich.
