83 companies make the list of the best places to work in Ireland

Did your company make the list?

A little under 100 companies in Ireland were named amongst the best places to work in the country at the annual Great Places to Work awards ceremony at the Clayton Hotel on Burlington Road in Dublin on Wednesday.


83 companies in total were honoured in three separate categories – best large workplaces, best medium workplaces and best small workplaces – and ranked in order on their relative lists based primarily on confidential input from the employees of the organisations involved.

The Great Place to Work Institute assesses the policies and practices in place in organisations under nine key areas: Inspiring, Speaking, Listening, Caring, Developing, Thanking, Hiring, Celebrating, and Sharing.

The second key component of the assessment is an anonymous Trust Index survey that gathers the perceptions of employees under five dimensions: Credibility, Respect, Fairness, Pride, and Camaraderie.
