Six Feet Up Awarded 2019 Powderkeg Culture Award

September 27, 2019

Six Feet Up attended the 2019 Indiana Breakout Tech Cultures Awards and received an award for the following categories:


Six Feet Up's CTO Calvin Hendryx-Parker accepted the award on behalf of the company on September 18th, 2019 (pictured below).


To receive an award, Powderkeg asked over 1,300 tech professionals exactly why they work and live in Indiana, and what makes the tech community unique and special. The data-first, decentralized approach of the Tech Census has been the largest community study on tech company culture in Indiana.

There were more than 267 tech companies nominated, and over 1,300 individual responses to this census. The survey asked employees at tech companies across the state about culture within their workplace. A wide variety of Indiana companies were eligible to participate, including tech software, tech hardware, tech powered and tech services firms.

What qualifications do you need to win?

Top-Rated Emerging Culture 2019

A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them today. Those people are the entrepreneurs who develop new products and launch new ventures and build entrepreneurial teams. The award-winning companies in this category may have smaller teams now, but their cultures have the right ingredients to go big.

Top-Rated Health & Balance 2019

In the tech world, the struggles to prioritize wellness and work-life balance are well-documented. But the companies who do prioritize health and balance, like every award-winning company in this category, come out ahead.

Top-Rated Social Impact 2019

The award-winning companies in this category prioritize diversity across teams and make efforts to create inclusive work environments, which has been proven to not only yield higher outputs, but also attract the best talent. The data from the 2019 Tech Census showed that employees at these companies tended to feel that they were valued as individuals—differences and all. They also made an effort to positively impact the community and tread lightly on this planet.

Top-Rated Sales & Marketing Team 2019

Sales and Marketing are the lifeblood of any business. These functions are what get any company’s product or service to the customers. Get the culture right in Sales and Marketing, and any tech company has the opportunity for exponential growth.
