INDIANAPOLIS (Oct. 2, 2019) Upper Hand, Inc., the leader in cloud-based sports and fitness management software, today proudly announces it’s been named “Best in Show” for Jones Lang LaSalle’s (JLL) Best Spaces in Indiana 2019 competition. The award program celebrates companies with innovative workspace designs across Central Indiana. The judges visit each office and score them in four categories:
  1. Functionality – how does the space drive productivity, collaboration, and connectivity?
  2. Uniqueness – what is the one unforgettable feature in the space?
  3. Branding – how does the space tell the company’s story and reflect its brand?
  4. Culture – how does the space engage the employee base?
Earlier this year, Upper Hand relocated its headquarters as part of the company’s strategy to accommodate for current and long-term sustainable growth. Since then, the company has gone from strength to strength. Located in the heart of downtown Indianapolis, the updated space provides the company with more than 5,000 square feet of office space, and a plethora of state of the art office equipment and furniture that better meets the demands of its expanding and collaborative workforce. In addition to $200,000 worth of design upgrades, Upper Hand’s impressive headquarters features custom wall art of legendary professional athletes. “We are honored to be recognized amongst an outstanding group of Hoosier companies who share the desire to better support our employees,” said Kevin MacCauley, CEO and founder of Upper Hand. “We specifically designed our space to inspire our growing team of innovators while celebrating Upper Hand’s passion for sports and fitness. Overall, we are incredibly pleased with how the space has impacted our team and driven tremendous results, including the introduction of new fitness features we are gearing up to launch this month.” Pictures of the office can be viewed on Upper Hand’s profile on Spaces. This “Best in Show” recognition is added to a long list of accolades received by Upper Hand and its executive team. Last year, Upper Hand was named the “Best Tech Company” as part of the new and exciting competition conducted by the Indianapolis Star, and chosen as the 2017 Mira Award People’s Choice winner for best tech space. Additionally, MacCauley was named to the Coach and Athletic Director’s inaugural 40 Under 40 List for his groundbreaking work in the sports industry.
