Top Workplaces 2023 | Indy Star bannerDirectEmployers Association has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2023 honor for the third consecutive year by Indianapolis Star Top Workplaces. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage LLC. The confidential survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers – which include alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few –  that are critical to the success of any organization.

“Since 2017, I have emphasized the importance of the employee experience and a culture-first company that embraces inclusion, belonging, and togetherness,” commented Candee Chambers, DirectEmployers Executive Director. “Not only have we broken down silos, but we have such incredible collaboration between teams, even when our staff is remote. It’s humbling to see the meaningful impact our efforts have had on our productivity and our efforts to retain top talent.”

Of the over 1,712 companies that participated in the survey process, DirectEmployers placed 15 out of 66 companies in the Small Business category. Since beginning its culture research 17 years ago, Energage has heard 27,000,00 employee voices from over 70,000+ companies. Of that 27,000,000, over 63,490 have been located in Central Indiana.

“Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “That’s something to be proud of. In today’s market, leaders must ensure they’re allowing employees to have a voice and be heard. That’s paramount. Top Workplaces do this, and it pays dividends.”

The Top Workplaces 2023 award comes on the heels of DirectEmployers’ 2023 Stevie Award win, acknowledging its excellence in customer service. To maintain momentum forward, DirectEmployers remains focused on its people-first culture, relying on the feedback of its staff for ways it can best improve the work environment and provide the work-life balance cherished by its employees.
