Jackson Systems was recently named as one of the 2013 Best Places to Work in Indiana. This is the second consecutive year to receive this distinguished honor. The awards program was created in 2006 and is a project of the Indiana Chamber of Commerce, BizVoice®, Inside INdiana Business, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) – IN State Council, the Indiana Economic Development Corporation and Best Companies Group.
This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Indiana, benefiting the state’s economy, its workforce and businesses. The 2013 Best Places to Work in Indiana list of 100 companies is made up of the following size categories:
33 Small-sized companies (15-74 US employees)
28 Medium-sized companies (75-249 US employees)
17 Large-sized companies (250-999 US employees)
22 Major-sized companies (1,000+ US employees)
*Only Indiana employees were surveyed, but companies are placed into size categories by US employees
To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:
– Have at least 15 employees working in Indiana;
– Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity;
– Be a publicly or privately held business;
– Have a facility in the state of Indiana; and
– Must be in business a minimum of 1 year.
Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Indiana. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Indiana and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.
Jackson Systems will be recognized and honored at the 2013 Best Places to Work in Indiana Awards Dinner coordinated by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, May 2nd. The final rankings will be announced at the event. In addition, all ranked companies will be recognized via a special section of the Indiana Chamber’s bimonthly BizVoice® magazine and through Inside INdiana Business with Gerry Dick.
