Walker, Inside INdiana Business Launch 'Pulse of Indiana Business'

INDIANAPOLIS —Indianapolis-based Walker and Inside INdiana Business have formed a partnership to create the Indiana Business Council – a first-of-its-kind, online panel monitoring key trends in Indiana business. More than 4,000 Hoosiers have registered to regularly share their thoughts and opinions on the important issues facing the Indiana economy.

“We think this is an innovative and interactive way to engage Indiana business professionals on the important issues of the day,” Gerry Dick, president of Grow INdiana Media Ventures LLC and host of Inside INdiana Business with Gerry Dick said. “We really want the Indiana Business Council to serve as the pulse of the Indiana business community.”

Walker and Inside INdiana Business will launch new studies every other month, featuring a short survey developed by Walker on specific, timely business topics.  Results of the first study, which will focus on the 2011 outlook for the Indiana economy, will be released February 4.

“We’re excited to participate with Inside INdiana Business and lend our consulting expertise to better understand and interpret the outlook for business in Indiana,” Walker CEO Steve Walker said.

The Walker-Inside INdiana Business partnership will also include the creation of the Indiana Business Confidence Index, a gauge of perceptions and the outlook for financial performance, jobs and customer-employee relationships.

To learn more about the results of each study, tune into to Inside INdiana Business with Gerry Dick, which airs on 15 television stations statewide. For additional information, or to apply to participate on the council, visit
