Innova Named One of Chicago’s Top Workplaces
LOMBARD, Ill., November 15, 2012 — Innova, which specializes in creating customized meat and savory flavors for food applications, was honored to be named one of the top places to work in the greater Chicago area by the Chicago Tribune.
The Tribune worked with research firm WorkplaceDynamics to conduct a survey of thousands of area employees on topics such as leadership, workplace environment and compensation and benefits. Innova made the list, which was published in the Chicago Tribune’s Top Workplace magazine on Tuesday, November 13.
“You realize that you really can have it all,” said Enrique Medina, Innova’s president. “We’ve increased sales and profitability every year for 11 years, we’ve continually pushed the envelope on custom solutions and problem-solving technologies for our customers and we couldn’t have had any of this success without a great work environment.”
Innova ranked especially well against similar companies in terms of how efficiently the company operates, how well-informed the workforce is on important decisions and developments and how satisfied its employees were with benefits.
“This recognition from the Chicago Tribune is a very important achievement for us,” said Medina. “As our Chairman of the Board Mr. Dean L. Griffith likes to say, ‘The best is yet to come.”
