Top Workplaces 2021 Award BadgeDirectEmployers Association has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2021 honor by Indianapolis Star. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage LLC.

“Being named a Top Workplace in Central Indiana has been a goal of mine since taking over as executive director in 2017,” commented Candee Chambers, DirectEmployers Executive Director. “Being intentional with cultural changes has not only contributed to this win but has helped us retain the incredible staff we have in place as we’ve grown. This award is especially monumental because 2021 marks our 20th anniversary and our employees were the judges who helped us achieve this recognition. Their feedback will also help us continue to evolve our culture and become even stronger for years to come.”

Only 89 companies made this year’s list out of all the organizations who participated, and DirectEmployers ranked in 16th place in the Small Business Category. In the fall of 2020, an anonymous survey was sent to staff members within the DirectEmployers Family of Brands. The survey uniquely measured 15 cultural drivers that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, to name a few.

“During this very challenging time, Top Workplaces has proven to be a beacon of light for organizations, as well as a sign of resiliency and strong business performance,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward. Top Workplaces draw on real-time insights into what works best for their organization, so they can make informed decisions that have a positive impact on their people and their business.”

While providing a significant morale boost to staff and a sense of pride of where they work, the Top Workplaces award also allows DirectEmployers and its family of brands to remain progressive and focused on proactive change as it relates to employee engagement.
