Online college competed in Large Companies category for the first time

INDIANAPOLIS (August 24, 2020) — American College of Education employees gathered virtually Monday to celebrate the company being named No. 4 on the 2020 list of Best Places to Work in Indiana.

It’s the fourth consecutive year the Indianapolis-based online college was ranked on the list, and the first it competed in the Large Companies category. Last year, ACE took the No. 2 spot in the Medium Companies division. This elite group of corporate honorees are selected based on comprehensive employee surveys and employer reports.  

“ACE is deeply honored to be named the fourth Best Place to Work in Indiana,” said ACE president Shawntel Landry. “Our leadership team and our employees consistently go above and beyond to create a positive, balanced and dynamic environment in which we can all work and grow.”

Such an environment is made possible by progressive employee benefits, including a flexible remote-work policy, paid parental leave, civic hours and tuition assistance.

“This ranking reflects what all ACE employees do every day to create and sustain a positive and thriving work environment,” said KK Byland, vice president of human resources at ACE. “We get to enjoy a wonderful workplace because each of our employees embraces the work, executes with passion and lives our culture.”

The Indiana Chamber of Commerce determines Best Place to Work rankings via a two-part survey process. The first part of this process, comprising approximately 25 percent, evaluates each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part accounts for approximately 75 percent of the total evaluation and requires employees to complete surveys to measure the employee experience. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Indiana, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings. Learn more.
