INDIANAPOLIS, Oct. 2, 2019 – The innovative workspace showcase, Spaces, presented awards to four companies last night.

Three categories were awarded along with a People’s Choice Award selected by an online vote open to the public prior to the event.
“This year’s winners highlight the impact of workspace design on an organization. Each captures the perfect blend of unique concept, employee-focused amenities and brand-infused design,” said Spaces founder, Matt Waggoner, Managing Director, Tenant Representation at JLL. “We are thrilled to see a community of now nearly 200 companies throughout the state that value their employees evidenced through their workspace.”
