Have you ever heard of a financial firm who makes breakfast in the morning for their clients? How about a CEO using a nerf gun to get his assistant’s attention? Lakeside isn’t your average financial firm and that’s what makes us a “Best” places to work.
The Indiana Chamber of Commerce honored a record 125 companies on Thursday, May 3 at the 2018 Best Places to Work in Indiana celebration dinner. Rankings were announced in four categories; small companies (15-74 employees), medium companies (75-249 employees), large companies (250-999 employees) and major companies (1,000+ employees). Lakeside landed at #7 in the small company category.
“Attracting and keeping a talented workforce is top of mind for all Hoosier employers,” stated Indiana Chamber President Kevin Brinegar. “Every company on the list made people the priority in their workplace, backing that up with policies and practices geared toward employee success and satisfaction.”
These top companies in the state were determined through employer reports and comprehensive employee surveys. Highlights from Lakeside include an impressive benefits package with unlimited sick time, team building days, a work/life balance that includes Lakeside families, a charity policy that gives paid time off and a monetary incentive to be involved in local charities, and more!
“If you love what you do and you love who you do it with then you make the workplace somewhere you want to go rather than a place you have to be,” comments Mark Chamberlain, Lakeside CEO. “As cliché as it sounds, we are a family. We celebrate personal and professional accomplishments and milestones together as well as getting through the personal and professional hardships together.”
This is the fourth consecutive year Lakeside has been named to the list. The number next to Lakeside’s name might be a 7 but if you ask the team, they are nothing short of number 1.
