Fast Company today announced its second annual Best Workplaces for Innovators list, honoring businesses and organizations that demonstrate a deep commitment to encouraging innovation at all levels. Ofinno was recognized as one of the top 100 best workplaces for innovators due to the company’s dedication and commitment to empowering innovators through collaboration, recognition, and investment.
Developed in collaboration with Accenture, the 2020 Best Workplaces for Innovators ranks 100 winners from a variety of industries, including computer science, biotech, consumer packaged goods, nonprofit, education, financial services, cybersecurity, and engineering. Working together, Fast Company editors and Accenture researchers scored nearly 900 applications, and a panel of eight eminent judges reviewed and endorsed the top 100 companies—an increase from last year’s list of 50. The 2020 awards feature workplaces from around the world with several of the honorees based outside the U.S.
“Ofinno is honored to be recognized as one of the 100 best workplaces for innovators. We strive to create a culture that inspires innovation. Not only do we encourage our employees to choose the inventions they develop, we reward them with bonuses and funds that can be allocated to charities of their choice. In addition, Ofinno invests nearly 100% of our revenue back into research and development,” said Esmael Dinan, Founder and CEO of Ofinno, LLC.
“As much of the world recovers from health, economic, and social crises, we need innovation more than ever,” says Stephanie Mehta, editor-in-chief of Fast Company. “This new list of the Best Workplaces for Innovators celebrates organizations that have fostered innovative thinking by investing in technology, research and development, and their employees.”
