“We are incredibly proud to be named as one of the Best Workplaces in Ireland,” said Eric Mosley, CEO of Globoforce. “Our culture is paramount to everything we do inside and outside the company. It is an environment based upon the foundation of employee recognition and appreciation, all driven by the dedication and hard work of our amazing employees. This award is dedicated to them, as they’re the reason why Globoforce is the successful organisation it is today.”
“This is a fantastic achievement particularly given the difficult economic backdrop, proving that if you invest time and effort in developing the right culture in your organization, your people will be your best asset and will be key to your business success,” said John Ryan, CEO of the Great Place to Work.
The Great Place to Work Institute assesses the practices in place in organisations under nine key areas: inspiring, speaking, listening, caring, developing, thanking, hiring, celebrating and sharing. They then benchmark these practices against other organisations in that country. 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.
Globoforce’s position was solidified due to high scores and positive comments from the Great Places to Work survey of its employees. Highlights from the survey include:
- 93 per cent of Globoforce employees believe that everyone has the opportunity to get special recognition
- 97 per cent are proud to tell others they work at Globoforce
- 96 per cent think people are treated fairly
- 95 per cent feel Globoforce is a great place to work
This latest award follows on from Globoforce’s recent accolade from The Boston Globe which named the company a category winner in its November 2012 Top Places to Work report.
