Johnson County, IN – Aspire Economic Development + Chamber Alliance announced it has opened online nominations for its “Business Resilience Award.” Aspire is offering the award to recognize employers that discovered innovative ways to adapt, forge a new path of resilience, and survive the last year. All for-profit and non-profit organizations located in Johnson County or southern Indy are eligible to be nominated.

“2020 was unprecedented. The pandemic forced Hoosier businesses to quickly adapt to evolving customer bases and government restrictions. Many employees worked from home for the first time,” stated Aspire President + CEO Christian Maslowski.

“But business leaders are survivors. The pandemic revealed new market opportunities, tested determination, and called on employers to serve community and customer pandemic-induced needs. We want to celebrate local business survival and success.”
