Appnovation, a Vancouver-based digital consulting firm, has been certified a Great Place to Work through independent analysis from Great Place to Work Institute Canada.

The certification is tied to feedback from employees who complete anonymous surveys on their experience in the workplace.

According to the survey, Appnovation received high rankings in camaraderie, credibility, pride, and performance. Eighty-nine percent of surveyed employees said they felt pride in their work, 97% said that Appnovation had a friendly working environment, and 87% said they believe they make a difference in their workplace.

“Appnovation has seen an incredible amount of growth in the past six to 12 months and we know a huge amount of our success can be attributed to our people and our culture,” said Scott Wassmer, general manager of the Americas at Appnovation. “The fact that 86% of employees would recommend Appnovation as a great place to work means we are on the right track.”
