These are the top 25 companies to work for in Ireland, according to their employees

If you're working for one of these companies, then you're probably not reading this article from the work toilet right now.

Employment specialists Indeed got employees to vote on their places of work to decipher which companies in Ireland were the best ones to work for.


The number one spot also came out on top of the this same poll last year, with the rest of the Top 25 being a healthy mix of retail and international tech companies.

The ranking of the best places to work in both overall and across individual categories is determined by reviews left by visitors to Indeed on individual company pages. Indeed then uses a proprietary algorithm to rank companies using a variety of factors, such as average rating, number of reviews and the history of job openings.

Paul Wolfe, Senior Vice President of Human Resources at Indeed, had this to say: "As the economy nears full employment, there is intense competition among companies to secure the best candidates for roles. Companies have recognised for some time that there is more to employee satisfaction than remuneration.

"Attraction of staff - let alone their continued retention - demands investment in work-life balance, flexibility, a supportive and collaborative working environment and opportunities to progress and learn, and this is evident in the companies we have ranked today.

"While attractive perks and flexible working conditions are often associated with the arrival of US tech names in the Irish market, this year’s rankings show that investment in people is being prioritised right across a range of sectors, from retail to technology and from healthcare to hospitality."
