Below is a sampling of the anonymous reviews collected by the Great Employers to Work for Indiana administered employee survey:
“Values everyone’s unique skills and abilities and encourages them to use those to its fullest. Very flexible in terms of schedule and work style. Strong sense of collaboration and teamwork.”
“The organization understands that that people and culture are the most important drivers of success. All employees are valued for who they are and the work they do, both by the company and fellow employees. The culture that comes as a result is the most genuine that, I have experienced. The organization is ambitious and achievement- oriented while also being relaxed and laid back. The organization is team oriented and collaborative while also ensuring each employee has independence in their own role. The organization has built a unique and talented team of high-character individuals that are dedicated to the people we work with and the work we do.”
“One of my favorite parts about this company is the freedom and trust given to employees. You don’t feel micromanaged and under constant surveillance but are instead are treated like an adult and trusted as long as you are getting your work done. There is a lot of flexibility, like unlimited PTO and the ability to work remotely if needed, that makes working so much easier and conducive to a healthier work-life balance. I also love the fun environment in the office. Our company events, cookouts, office parties, First Fridays, competitions, and relaxed atmosphere are all contributing factors that make this a really fun place to work. Our ability to work hard and play hard is something I really value.”
“Leaders act with staunch conviction to do things differently in this industry by focusing on the customer and maintaining a consistent desirable brand. They are not swayed by the winds of industry norms. People are valued highly, and work-life balance is not only supported but demonstrated by leadership.”
“The data is clear: these companies are treating people with respect and care, and in return their people are giving their best at work,” said Jaime Raul Zepeda, Executive Vice President of Best Companies Group. “Best Companies Group is proud to recognize all companies on our 2022 Great Employers to Work For in Indiana list.”
