Indianapolis, Indiana, May 15, 2023 – The BAM Companies has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2023 honor by Indianapolis Star Top Workplaces. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage LLC. The confidential survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “That’s something to be proud of. In today’s market, leaders must ensure they’re allowing employees to have a voice and be heard. That’s paramount. Top Workplaces do this, and it pays dividends.”

“Being recognized for being a great place to work is something that has been on my wishlist for a long time. From early on I had this crazy idea – what if we had a company where people liked their jobs? What if people wanted to come work for us because of the culture and the way we treat our people. So, to be awarded for that means a great deal to me,” says Ivan Barratt, Founder  & CEO.
