a leading provider of social
recognition solutions, today announced that it has been named as one
of the Best
Workplaces in Ireland 2014 by the Great Places To Work Institute.
Announced at an awards ceremony held at the DoubleTree by Hilton on
Wednesday 26th February, Globoforce was ranked number 3 in
Ireland in the medium-sized workplace category. Globoforce’s position
was solidified due to high scores and positive comments from the Great
Places to Work survey of its employees. The company’s overall scores
improved in all nine of the Great Places to Work practice areas.
“Our culture is defined by employees who are happy, inspired, and
engaged. It is the foundation for who we are and is the driving force
towards helping our customers achieve success,” said Eric Mosley, CEO of
Globoforce. “Being named to the number 3 spot of companies our size in
all of Ireland is a proud achievement. We applaud our fellow winners and
join them in our collective focus toward fostering the world’s best work
John Ryan, CEO of Great Place to Work Ireland, said, “This evening is
all about recognition for both the staff and management at this year’s
listed workplaces. They have proven the clear link between high trust
and high performance. These organisations are ahead of the rest because
they don’t deliver mere platitudes about the importance of their
employees to their business; rather, they create a rich culture
supported by people practices that ensure higher levels of
collaboration, greater input into strategy development and vision
shaping, and distributed decision making throughout their population –
making sure that the people with the most relevant knowledge are tasked
with making those decisions.”
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. These practices are benchmarked 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.
Finally, there is an in-depth qualitative analysis of open ended
comments from employees.
Employee findings from Globoforce’s survey results include:
98 percent say the company is a friendly place to work
98 percent report the company celebrates special events
97 percent feel welcome upon joining.
91 percent feel pride in what they do
This award comes shortly after Globoforce was named a national Great
Place to Work in the United States, a list compiled in association with
The 2014 full list of listed organisations and award winners, and past
