Indiana ranked 5th among all states in Chief Executive Magazine’s “Best and Worst States for Business” for 2017. In its survey of 513 CEO’s, Indiana ranked #1 as the Midwest’s Best State. The magazine ranks all 50 states from the Best to the Worst. In the magazine’s 12th annual canvas of CEO opinion, Chief Executive asked CEOs to rank states they are familiar with on the friendliness of their tax and regulatory regime, workforce quality, and living environment, which includes the cost of living and local attitudes toward business. The results indicate CEO’s favor states with fewer regulatory encumbrances and report that most remedies dangled by politicians only make things worse.
Indiana moved up from 6th place in 2016 and Chief Executive Magazine’s honor is just one more accolade bestowed among the state many have started calling the gem of the Silicon Prarie. This also explains why so many businesses have announced plans to expand or make wholesale relocations to the Hoosier State. The latest expansion was announced on May 2nd when Infosys announced plans to locate a Tech Hub in Indianapolis, which will employ 2,000 employees by 2022. As the commercial Tenant Advisor, we’re pleased to be part of something great being built in the greater Indianapolis area and the State of Indiana.
