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.”

“Certified companies put employees first,” said 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."
