INDIANAPOLIS, IN —The former Sommer Barnard PC, now merged with Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP, is pleased to announce the firm has placed sixth as one of the “Best Places to Work in Indiana” for small to medium sized companies for the third year in a row. Sommer Barnard placed 2nd in 2007 and 5th in 2006.
The Indiana Chamber announced rankings for all 66 companies that made the Best Places to Work in Indiana list at an awards dinner at the Indiana Roof Ballroom attended by 800 Hoosier businesspeople. Names of companies on the list had been released February 25. The 2008 program was presented by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield.
The honorees were determined through employer reports and comprehensive employee surveys, with winners selected in two categories: small to medium-sized companies of between 25 and 249 employees, and large-sized companies consisting of 250 or more employees. Out-of-state parent companies were eligible to participate if at least 25 full-time employees are in Indiana.
The Best Companies Group has overseen similar programs in 18 other states. ModernThink, LLC, a workplace excellence consulting firm, handled the selection process. The basis for this initiative is Fortune magazine’s noted “100 Best Companies to Work for in America.”
