First Person Named a Top Workplace in Central Indiana

First Person Advisors, a subsidiary of NFP, has been named a Top Workplace for 2021 by the Indianapolis Star. It is one of only 89 companies and organizations in Central Indiana to make the list.

Top Workplaces are selected based on employee feedback on the Energage Workplace Survey. The research-backed employee engagement survey consists of 24 base statements that capture anonymous responses in four culture imperatives:

  • Align – Where the company is headed, its values, cooperation, effective meetings;
  • Connect – Employees feel appreciated, work is meaningful, working at full potential, clued-in to each other;
  • Coach – Managers care about concerns, are helpful, encourage employee development; and
  • Performance – Execution, open-mindedness, innovation, clued-in leadership.

The survey also measures employee engagement, leadership and pay, benefits, flexibility and more.

“This award means the world to us because it’s based solely on employee feedback,” said First Person President and Chief Strategy Officer Mark Minner. “Without our people and their amazing talent, we wouldn’t be able to provide the exemplary work for our clients.”

Matt Henry, First Person Chief People Officer, said, “Coming on the heels of a global pandemic and a lot of change, this accolade is particularly rewarding. It says that our people are on board with the firm’s vision and feel valued. That’s critically important in 2021.”

“We’ve always sought to lead by example, so accolades from our people show we’re walking the walk,” said CEO and Founder Bryan Brenner. “I couldn’t be more proud. In the last 30 days, we’ve announced our acquisition by NFP, launched into INDYCAR sponsorship with Ed Carpenter Racing at the Indianapolis 500 and added to our family of clients. It’s been an incredible spring!”
