    First Harrison Bank is one of the 2009 Best Places to Work in Indiana.
    This statewide survey and awards program -- A project of the Indiana Chamber of Commerce, BizVoice, Inside Indiana Business, the Indiana Youth Institute, the Indiana Economic Development Corporation and Best Companies Group -- was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Indiana, benefiting the state's economy, its workforce and businesses.  The 2009 Best Places to Work in Indiana list is made up of 40 companies in the small/medium-sized list (25-249 employees) and 30 companies in the large-sized list (250+ employees).
    To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:
- Have at least 25 employees in Indiana;
- Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity;
- Be a publicly or privately held business;
- Have a facility in the state of Indiana; and
- Must be in business a minimum of 1 year.

    Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Indiana.  The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated 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 ranking.  Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Indiana and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.  
    First Harrison Bank will be recognized and honored at the Best Places to Work in Indiana awards dinner coordinated by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce on May 5th.  The final rankings will be announced at the event.
    With 12 current locations throughout Harrison, Floyd, Clark, and Washington counties -- and a Lanesville, Indiana location scheduled to open the summer of 2009 -- First Harrison Bank employs nearly 150 people and has assets exceeding $450 million.  For more information about First Harrison Bank, contact Bill Harrod at 812-738-2198 or via email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
