This is the 5th time the Company has been recognized by the annual program created by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce and Best Companies Group.
OrthoPediatrics CEO Mark Throdahl noted the significance of this honor amid the COVID-19 pandemic, stating, “We are delighted to receive this distinction for the fifth time, particularly because it is based on the feedback of our associates. My colleagues and I believe that culture is our company’s most important asset, and we continue to be impressed by the perseverance and dedication of our associates during what has been a challenging year for us all. Their feedback from this survey reinforces our commitment to foster a People-Focused, Results-Oriented culture.”
This statewide survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize, and honor the participating employers in Indiana with the leading workplace cultures. The list is made up of 125 companies.
“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,” says Indiana Chamber President Kevin Brinegar. “These companies consistently demonstrate to their employees how much they value their contributions.”
To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

- Be a publicly or privately held business;
- Have a facility in Indiana;
- Have at least 15 employees working in Indiana;

This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of thea total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Indiana, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.
