Hamilton County Tourism was recently selected as one of the Best Places to Work in Indiana. This is the second year the nonprofit has been recognized by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce and Best Companies Group.
The Best Places to Work statewide survey and awards program honors participating employers with leading workplace cultures. The list names 125 companies with Hamilton County Tourism being one of them in the small employer category.
"We are aware of the importance of talent attraction and retention and want to keep our amazing team engaged,” said Tina Rodgers, assistant director of resources for Hamilton County Tourism. “We provide opportunities for people to be challenged and make an impact while also taking time to recognize and celebrate their accomplishments.”
To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill these eligibility requirements:
Be a for-profit, not-for-profit business or government entity;
Be a publicly or privately held business;
Have a facility in Indiana;
Have at least 15 employees working in Indiana;
Be in business a minimum of one year.
Companies then entered a two-part survey process. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part was an employee survey to measure the employee experience. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data and determined the final rankings.
“We have many tremendous employers in the state, so it’s great to see more and more companies take part in this effort to evaluate their workplace cultures and gain the recognition they deserve,” said Kevin Brinegar, Indiana Chamber president. “These companies consistently demonstrate to their employees how much they value their contributions.”
The final rankings will be announced at an awards dinner on April 30 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, then published in the May-June issue of the Indiana Chamber’s BizVoice® magazine.
