VANCOUVER, June 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Appnovation has been named on the 2021 list of Best Workplaces™ for Mental Wellness. Appnovation received this honour after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work®.

The list is based on direct feedback from employees of the hundreds of organizations that were surveyed by Great Place to Work®.  To be eligible for this list, organizations must be Great Place to Work- Certified™ in the past year, and at least 80% of employees must agree their workplace is psychologically and emotionally healthy. We determined the BEST based on the overall Mental Wellness Index score from employees.

One of the ways we foster this culture is through supporting our employees’ holistic health,” said Sherb Pao, EVP, Global People and Operations at Appnovation. “We invest in our people’s mental health through education series, benefits and promoting a culture that encourages open dialogue. This recognition is a testament to all the work we do to bring our core values to life.”
