ATLANTA, Sept. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Dinova, a proprietary business dining marketplace similar to Airbnb and Uber, was recognized today as a best place to work by the Atlanta Business Chronicle, the premier business journal in the market. The Best Places to Work 2016 awards were announced at this morning's breakfast, where only 100 of the top companies in Metro Atlanta were recognized.
The breakfast, held at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta, acknowledged companies which came out on top based on a multi-dimensional survey completed by their own employees. Survey dimensions included rating the work environment, the level of creativity and overall treatment of employees. The survey was administered by the independent research firm Quantum Workplace. Dinova's award came in the small company category and will appear in the next issue of the Atlanta Business Chronicle in a special section highlighting the winners. Emcee Crystal Edmonson pointed out that the small company category was the most vigorously competitive, with more than 600 applicants, and only 50 making the cut.
"It is such an honor to be recognized with this outstanding award for fostering a company culture where our employees feel valued, creative and happy," said CEO and Founder Vic Macchio. "We are a fast growing company. Having a great company culture is the foundation for future success. This award belongs to all present and future employees at Dinova. It's our people that make this a best place to work."
Since January, Dinova has increased its headcount company-wide by 20 percent and will continue expansion in 2016 with an annex of more office space at its Johns Creek corporate headquarters.
