Organization Honored For Second Straight Year By Indiana Chamber of Commerce
INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 18, 2015 – The Indianapolis Indians have been named one of the “Best Places to Work in Indiana” by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce. The Indians organization, which was also chosen for the award in 2014, is the only Indiana sports franchise to be selected among the 100 award recipients.
“The Indians organization is honored to once again be chosen as one of the Best Places to Work in Indiana,” said Indians General Manger Randy Lewandowski. “The positive, healthy and inclusive work environment, created by our employees, translates directly to the experience we provide our fans, and helps Victory Field to continue to be Downtown Indy’s summertime destination for affordable and memorable family fun.”
This honor continues a successful stretch for the Indians organization, which over the last three seasons has drawn the most fans of any US-based Minor league baseball team, including a Victory Field record 660,289 fans in 2014. The Tribe also led all of Minor League Baseball in overall attendance in 2013 on their way to being presented with Baseball America’s Triple-A Bob Freitas Award for the best overall operations at the Triple-A level.
The overall rankings for the 100 companies chosen as Indiana’s 2015 “Best Places To Work” will be unveiled at a May 7 awards dinner at the JW Marriott in downtown Indianapolis. The Indians were one of 41 businesses chosen in this year’s small company category, which includes companies with anywhere from 15-74 employees.
In addition to the May 7 awards dinner, winners will be recognized via a special section of the Indiana Chamber’s bimonthly BizVoice® magazine and through Inside INdiana Business with Gerry Dick. Visit IndianaChamber.com to view the full list of honorees.
