Hiring Hoosiers

January 23, 2012

On my personal list of sports movies, “Hoosiers” probably makes the top 5 of a Lettermanesque 10, but somewhere behind “Bull Durham,” “The Natural” and “Field of Dreams.” It projects images of wholesome, yet imperfect small town life in 1954 Indiana. The still inviting lifestyle and business climate of the state and the city of Indianapolis led Kronos to establish a Technology Center there earlier this month. Our road to Indianapolis was a long one. In selecting an ideal site for a tech center, we explored several international and domestic locations before choosing Indy.

During the opening ceremony earlier this month, our VP of Services, Chris Todd remarked that the business-friendly climate and abundant talent pool were keys to the Indy decision. So far we’ve hired over 25 new employees and began our first round of training on January 3rd. We still have some open positions and will be aggressively growing our team over the next few years. With that talent pool being filled with graduates from Indiana University, Purdue and other schools, we’ll be able to build a strong team of Hoosiers and Boilermakers. I hear it’s a cool place. A good friend of mine is Director of Player Personnel at Purdue, and he loves the area.

Speaking of football, I hear there’s a big game being played there the first Sunday in February. If you’re going to be in Indy for the “game that shall not be named” because of the NFL’s copyright, check out the old Butler University gymnasium, the location for in the final scenes of “Hoosiers.” Oh, and if anyone has a ticket for me, let me quote “Hoosier” guard Jimmy Chitwood. “I’ll make it.”
