SEP Named a Best Places to Work in Indiana for 7th Consecutive Year
(CARMEL) — Small companies lead the way on the 2016 Best Places to Work in Indiana list, with nearly half (48) of the 100 honorees coming from that category.
“The companies selected represent some of our most outstanding Hoosier employers. They embrace the idea that a positive work culture that includes respect, communication, opportunity and being part of a team not only makes it a place in which employees want to work but also fuels the success of the company,” states Indiana Chamber President Kevin Brinegar.
“We had our highest number of applicants to date this time – 200 in total,” he relays. “It’s becoming more competitive and we are glad to see that. Going forward, we will continue to push for Hoosier businesses throughout the state to apply to be considered.”
These top companies in the state were determined through employer reports and comprehensive employee surveys. The Best Companies Group, which handled the selection process, oversees similar programs in 27 other states.
Winners were selected from four categories: small companies of between 15 and 74 U.S. employees; medium companies of between 75 and 249 U.S. employees; large companies of between 250 and 999 U.S. employees; and major companies with 1,000 or more U.S. employees. Out-of-state parent companies were eligible to participate if at least 15 full-time employees are in Indiana.
Organizations on this year’s list that have displayed sustained excellence during the program’s 11-year history received additional recognition.
Hall of Fame companies are those that have been named a Best Place to Work in Indiana at least two-thirds of the time in the program’s history; a total of 14 organizations on the 2016 list meet that criteria, including SEP.
“We could not be more excited to be recognized as a Best Place to Work (again!),” said Raman Ohri, President of SEP. “From the outside, SEP probably seems a place all about technology. The reality is that our work is very much about people, collaboration and communication. Being named to this list for a seventh straight year is acknowledgement of the great people who work here and the culture they’ve built.”
SEP is an employee-owned product design and development company that currently employs 105 all inside their Carmel, IN office.
