Celadon Trucking Services has been selected among the “Best Places to Work in Indiana” by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce. Celadon, based in Indianapolis, was one of only 15 large companies chosen and one of 36 companies selected overall. The winners will be honored and their rankings unveiled at an awards luncheon on May 3.
“Receiving this recognition from the Indiana Chamber is exciting,” says Celadon President Tom Glaser. “As a business, it means that we are doing the right things for our employees. Our chairman, Steve Russell, has a motto — ‘Life is good when you can’t wait to get to work and you can’t wait to get home. I am proud that Celadon is a place where people enjoy working.”
In its first year, the “Best Places” assessment program was created to identify outstanding employers in the state as determined through extensive employer evaluations and comprehensive employee surveys. Winners were selected from two categories: small- to medium-sized companies of between 25 and 199 employees, and large-sized companies consisting of 200 or more employees.
“Our goal with ‘Best Places to Work in Indiana’ is two-fold — to recognize the first-rate Hoosier employers who take pride in creating an environment that makes employees feel valued, and to encourage other Indiana companies to examine their workplace structure and how it impacts their employees,” says Indiana Chamber President Kevin Brinegar. “After all, an employee who feels valued will likely be more productive for the employer.”
