Dine Brands Global, Inc., the parent company of Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar and IHOP restaurants, announced its first Great Place to Work Certification granted by Great Place to Work. This is a significant step and marks Dine’s efforts towards providing a great employee experience.
As one of the world’s largest full-service dining companies, Dine has established itself as an industry leader in workplace culture. In 2021, Dine promoted more than 50 team members into leadership roles; launched six Team Member Resource Groups; established a company-wide Embrace All Day to give team members nine hours of paid time off to volunteer for a philanthropic activity or celebrate a day of personal cultural importance; and updated its Tuition Reimbursement Program to allow for further education and career development.
“It’s easy to assume you are a great place to work, but to be certified is an enormous honor,” says John Peyton, CEO of Dine Brands Global. “At Dine we’re guided by our core values and are taking big, intentional moves to constantly innovate, recognize good, and embrace all. The results of the Great Place to Work survey show that our team members feel they can be their authentic selves at Dine and highlights the tremendous work our team, and leadership, are doing to ensure we live our values, celebrate diversity and give guests a reason to continue to gather at our restaurants.”
The team member survey revealed that more than 90% of respondents believe that, at Dine Brands, people are treated fairly, and 88% of respondents reported feeling that they make a difference at the company.
“Certified companies put employees first,” says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Thriving employees increase revenue, profit and provide market-leading customer experiences. I hope that Certification Nation Day can inspire other executives to create and sustain employee-first cultures.”
According to Great Place to Work research, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a Certified great workplace. Additionally, employees at Certified Workplaces are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits and have a fair chance at promotion.
