Weddle Bros. Construction Companies was selected, for the second year in a row, one of the BEST PLACES TO WORK IN INDIANA!
"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.
Last Thursday, May 7th, Laura Bush, Business Development Manager and Steve Mishler, Senior Project Manager accepted the " 2015 Best Places to Work" award that was presented to Weddle Bros. Construction Co., Inc.
