IEM was recently named as one of the “2020 Best Places to Work” in Baton Rouge, placing 14th in the larger employer category. The awards program is a project of the Greater Baton Rouge Business Report, the Greater Baton Rouge SHRM, an affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management, and the Best Companies Group.
The survey and awards program was created to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Baton Rouge, benefiting its economy, its workforce and businesses. IEM first participated in the program in 2015 and was named in the Top 10 of the “Best Places to Work” in the small- to medium-sized employer category from 2015 to 2017 (5th, 9th, and 7th respectively). In 2018, IEM moved to the large employer category, and has continued to earn recognition as one of the “Best Places to Work” placing 11th and 10th in the past two years.
“At IEM, our employees are our greatest asset. We endeavor to offer a flexible workplace with generous benefits and a positive work environment,” noted IEM Founder, President and CEO Madhu Beriwal. “I am personally proud of this recognition among my fellow business leaders in Baton Rouge, and the entire Corporate leadership team is thankful to our incredible employees for making this award possible.”
Companies from across the region entered the two-part process to determine the “Best Places to Work” in Baton Rouge. The first part consisted of evaluating each company’s workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the 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 Baton Rouge and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.
