Industry-Leading Employee Benefit Firm Scores First Place Second Year in a Row.

Bedford, IN, September 11, 2020 — The Indiana Chamber of Commerce revealed JA Benefits, LLC as the number one Best Place to Work in Indiana in the Small Companies (15-74 employees) category as the rankings were released for its 2020 Best Places to Work in Indiana program August 25, 2020. The rankings were determined by in-depth employee evaluations, which measured the companies’ strengths and weaknesses and divided into four categories based on company size.

Kevin Brinegar, chief executive officer of the Indiana Chamber shared his thoughts in an Inside Indiana Business article, “Congratulations to these companies for providing the ‘best’ atmospheres and bringing out the ‘best’ in their employees. Their message is coming through loud and clear: It’s all about the employees. All should be proud of the perks, programs and opportunities they offer to emphasize a healthy work-life balance, community involvement and professional development.”

JA Benefits, LLC, after being awarded first place in 2019, challenged themselves to continue expanding employee programs, providing avenues for growth personally and professionally while leaning into furthering the already positive and encouraging workplace culture. The company now sets their sights on achieving the Pinnacle designation, which can be earned by finishing first in their category three or more times in a five-year period.

Chris Johnson, Partner, Chairman and CEO of JA Benefits, LLC, humbled to be recognized as the top employer in the category for a second straight year, immediately responded with gratitude to those that made it possible, “Thank you to all of our team members, they make it happen daily. In every action, we work to incorporate our core values of Relationships, Purpose and Growth creating a positive and encouraging workplace culture. Our team members live, breathe, and love our culture. Our hope is that the experience JA provides for our team in the workplace is lived out in every moment of the client experience.”
