Commenting on the award Version 1 CEO Justin Keatinge said, “Making the Best Workplaces in Europe list is something we are so proud of and a huge achievement for everyone in Version 1. We were thrilled to hear that we had made the Top 100 listing and that our position in the ranking puts Version 1 in the top 2% of employers in Europe; a really tremendous achievement. Building on our 5th place in the Best Large company listing in Ireland earlier in 2013, we have set ourselves high standards to ensure that we continue to make Version 1 an employer of choice in Europe. Partnering with the Great Place to Work® Institute places employee engagement at the heart of everything we do and ensures our culture is one where people trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do and enjoy the people they work with.”
