100 Best Companies to Work For 2016| Minnesota Business Magazine

We are excited to announce that Innovative has been selected as one of the 2016 100 Best Companies to Work For; our fifth consecutive year receiving the honor. From an engaging environment where visitors feel the energy, to empowering our employees to succeed, to providing our customers with the best service available, the Innovative team has a culture that strives to bring success to all!


Minnesota is known for being a great place to live and work, with top-notch companies in many industries headquartered here. Each year, these companies submit nominations for the 100 Best Companies to Work For Awards by Minnesota Business magazine.

The nomination process consisted of a three and a half month period where Minnesota companies had the opportunity to nominate themselves or another local company for consideration — nominations were submitted through the Minnesota Business web portal. Once nominations closed, each company nominated was internally vetted and emailed a survey to be completed by full-time employees. The results of these employee surveys were then tabulated and 100 winners were chosen based on the best of those results, and Innovative is one of them!




We’re absolutely thrilled to have made the 100 Best Companies to Work For list for the fifth consecutive year. Our people are the heart and soul of our Relationships Matter belief system and work hard each day to serve our customer and supplier partners. It’s great to know they enjoy being part of the Innovative story and love coming to work each day.” – Jennifer Smith, CEO.
