In an economy dominated by a progressive professional services workforce, it’s no surprise that the physical environments of today’s businesses are dynamic and fluid. And they have to be, because workplace culture has a direct impact on profitability. From attracting talent to engaging clients, communicating brand, and amplifying the employee experience, innovative workspaces have the ability to win markets.

To celebrate this type of innovation in Indiana, Spaces was founded in 2016. This competitive showcase of workplace design is a hub where Indiana companies show off their forward-thinking workspaces and inspire others to think deeply about the impact an office space environment has on its people and, ultimately, its success.

Last night, the 2017 Spaces showcase winners were announced and celebrated at a pretty cool space itself, The Tinker House Events in downtown Indianapolis. The Indy tech community commanded the 2017 showcase as effectively as Spaces inaugural event in 2016. Nominees this year included the likes of Aprimo, BlackInkIT, BlueSky Technology Partners, enVista, Fizziology, Fusion Alliance, Hyde Park Ventures, SEP, SmartIT, Spot, and Torchlite. But three local tech companies led the pack:

Last night’s winners also included real estate developer Flaherty and Collins and advertising agency Bradley and Montgomery.

Congratulations to all of the 2017 Spaces winners! Central Indiana’s ability to support a competitive event of this magnitude speaks volumes about the pivotal role the office environment plays in the business of local tech and professional service firms. These companies understand that workplace innovation is about more than video games, pod desks, and keeping the fridge stocked with cold beer (although those perks certainly help); it’s about creating an environment of the future for the work being done today.
