Centier Bank is a family-owned, independent bank that puts building a culture as one of its top priorities. As a result, the bank was recognized by the Indiana Chamber for being among the “Best Places to Work in Indiana” for the 12th consecutive year. Centier qualified in the Large Company category, which features organizations that employ between 250 and 999 U.S. associates.
“This distinction is a result of how our associates feel about working at Centier,” explained Chrisanne Christ, Senior Partner in Human Resource Development at Centier Bank. “The award is a part of a journey for us. Every year we look to raise the bar in how we take care of our associates. What means most to us isn’t necessarily receiving the designation, but learning that our associates feel our culture is special and consider us a Best Place to Work.”
“When you take care of your people and put them first, they take care of everything else. Because our associates are so happy here, they naturally are going to give the best service,” continued Christ.
Two hundred companies applied for the distinction this year, and a record 125 companies have been named to the list. Centier Bank is one of 19 companies named Best Places to Work in Indiana to achieve Hall of Fame status, a result of being named to this list in 12 of the 13 the list has been accrued. The Best Places to Work in Indiana are determined through employer reports and comprehensive employer surveys conducted by The Best Companies Group, which oversees similar programs in 25 other states.
“We have many tremendous employers in the state, so it’s great to see more and more companies take part in this effort to evaluate their workplace cultures and gain the recognition they deserve,” offers Indiana Chamber President Kevin Brinegar.” “These organizations come from a wide variety of industries yet they all have a common thread. They continually demonstrate to their employees through their culture, communication, career opportunities, benefits and more how much they value their contributions.”
The final rankings for the companies will be unveiled at an awards dinner at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis on May 3rd. The 2018 Best Places to Work in Indiana awards dinner is open to the public. Individual tickets and tables of 10 are available at www.indianachamber.com/specialevents.
