Great Place to Work – What Does It Take?

The Great Place to Work® Awards honour the Best Workplaces across Ireland who are awarded based on in-depth analysis of two main areas:

  • The Trust Index© Employee Survey that measures the extent to which your organisation is considered to be a great workplace by your people.
  • A Culture Audit that analyses the policies, practices, programs and day-to-day management behaviours that underpin a workplace culture.

The assessments are categorised into five dimensions of the Great Place to Work® Methodology. The first three dimensions, Credibility, Respect and Fairness, measure employee trust in management, while the final two, Pride and Camaraderie, assess employees’ feelings about their jobs and their colleagues, ensuring that all aspects of employee life are factored into the results.
