Dan McGowan | Inside INdiana Business


The Indiana Chamber of Commerce has announced the rankings of this year's Best Places to Work in Indiana. The top honors were awarded to companies in each of four categories during an event Thursday in front of a sellout crowd of 1,200 at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis.

The number one ranked companies of the 100 on the 2016 list are:

  • Small Companies: Carmel-based Luther Consulting LLC
  • Medium Companies: Carmel-based Mainstreet
  • Large Companies: Indianapolis-based Katz, Sapper & Miller LLP
  • Major Companies: Microsoft Corp. in Indianapolis

Luther, Mainstreet and Katz, Sapper & Miller are all first time winners, with Microsoft earning its record fifth trophy. Indiana Chamber Chief Executive Officer Kevin Brinegar says "a big congratulations to the No. 1 organizations. Their leaders and each company on this list understand how important it is for the success of a business to have a culture that respects and values employees. These businesses demonstrated that in a variety of ways - from fostering open communication and teamwork to providing training opportunities and more unique job benefits. We are pleased to acknowledge the efforts of all 100 honorees."

The chamber also recognized Hall of Fame companies, those that have been included on the list at least two-thirds of the time during the 11-year history of the honors, and Pinnacle honorees, those that have finished first in their respective categories at least three times over the course of a five-year period.

LLC, Centier Bank, Microsoft Corp., Edward Jones, Salesforce, RCI, Hilliard Lyons, Cushman & Wakefield and Capital Group.
