Angel stays and innovates in Indianapolis.

Businesses today can operate from almost anywhere — and leading companies in nearly every industry choose to call Indiana home. The draw of a State that Works goes beyond our culture of Hoosier hospitality. With a diverse talent pool, business-friendly incentives and a low cost of living, Indiana has what it takes to grow your bottom line while taking care of your team.

"I thought I’d start my career here in Indianapolis and be here maybe three to five years. Fast forward almost 20 years, and Indy is still home."

As senior director of professional services at Genesys, Angel Henry helps the industry-leading innovator of contact center solutions develop its products and global workforce. Her work is focused on bringing value to customers through professional services, with people-first solutions.

“We’re a global company,” said Angel. “We don’t have to stay in Indianapolis, but I’m proud to say that Indianapolis is our largest site. Genesys is doubling down on Indiana for multiple reasons.”

From leading educational institutions like Purdue University and Indiana University to dozens of family-friendly cities, Indiana is a State that Works for families. While Angel continues to grow her career, she can prioritize what matters most — raising her family in a place that feels like home.
