(September 14, 2015) — Downtown Indianapolis has a talented workforce. The city continues to grow with thriving businesses, a strong corporate base, a robust convention/hospitality market and a quickly-expanding residential community. The organization Downtown Indy recognizes the importance of attracting and retaining talent in Indianapolis.

To show their support, they’re hosting Workforce Week Sept. 14 – 18. This spirited appreciation week will include pats-on-the-back, fun team-building events, giveaways and more. #workloveindy
