The Indiana Chamber of Commerce has unveiled the 2016 Best Places to Work in Indiana. Of the 100 honorees, nearly half are small businesses. President Kevin Brinegar says more employers applied than ever before.

Final rankings of the honorees will be announced May 5 at an awards dinner at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.

The program has been around for 11 years and two companies, Edward Jones and Katz, Sapper & Miller, are the only businesses included each year.

Brinegar says 200 companies applied. "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." He adds "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."

Twenty-seven employers on the list are new to the list or returning after at least a year absence. Honorees are selected through employer reports and employee surveys conducted by The Best Companies Group.

The Indiana program includes four categories based on company size: small have between 15 and 74 U.S. employees, medium have between 75 and 249 U.S. employees, large have between 250 and 999 U.S. employees and major have 1,000 or more U.S. employees. Businesses with out-of-state parent companies must have at least 15 full-time Indiana employees to participate.
