Our first edition of the Legislative Agenda is now available. This document details bills introduced in the Indiana House and Senate that the Chamber has taken a position on and the reason for that stance.
This publication provides clear input on issues that not only affect the Indiana business community, but communities, families and individuals throughout the state. We strive to provide our members, legislators and the public with a clear understanding of our positions on these key bills.
In addition to being online, this information is sent directly to legislators. We plan to use votes on the bills – those that make it to the House or Senate floor – contained in this document in our annual Legislative Vote Analysis, which scores legislators on their voting record.
They come from throughout the state and across 25 industries. They are the 100 honorees on the 2017 Best Places to Work in Indiana list.
Nearly half (49) of the winners are from the small employer category and almost a third (32) are first-time honorees or returning after at least a year’s absence.
Offers Indiana Chamber President Kevin Brinegar: “Best Places to Work in Indiana not only recognizes our state’s outstanding employers, but also sets a high standard for other Hoosier companies by encouraging them to realize the importance of evaluating their own workplaces.
“It is clear that a positive work environment makes employees more engaged in their job and in their company, which is a win for everyone.”
The 2017 honorees represent more than 20 cities throughout the state, with multiple winners hailing from Bloomington, Carmel, Evansville, Fishers, Fort Wayne, Michigan City, New Albany, Noblesville and West Lafayette, in addition to Indianapolis.
The actual rankings for the companies will be unveiled at a May 2 awards dinner, presented in partnership with Hylant, at the Indiana Convention Center (Sagamore Ballroom) in downtown Indianapolis. [Full story].
