PEI Named As One of the Best Workplaces in Ireland

PEI is delighted to announce that it has been officially recognised as one of the Best Workplaces in Ireland in 2019. PEI was recognised at the 17th annual Great Place to Work Best Workplaces in Ireland awards in the Clayton Hotel on Burlington Road, Dublin on Wednesday 27th February.

As an company committed to developing high-trust relationships throughout every level of its organisation, PEI was understandably delighted to have been officially recognised as one of the Best Workplaces in Ireland in 2019, yet again.

The Best Workplace in Ireland awards showcase organisations that hold a steadfast focus in ensuring their workplaces are the best that they can be and are testament to companies and employees who relentlessly strive to create a positive work culture.

PEI has consistently featured in the TOP 50 Best Workplaces in Ireland every year it had entered the competition over the previous 17 years. The competition is assessed through Great Place to Work’s robust ‘Trust Index©’ employee survey and a thorough ‘Culture Audit©’ assessment of their policies and practices.
 
Great Place to Work Ireland is part of a global network of culture consultants, with offices in 48 countries using an established methodology to publish lists at country, regional, and global levels. The best known of these is the Fortune 100 list of Best Companies to Work For in the United States.

The key defining feature of a great workplace is the level of trust that exists within it. From an employee’s viewpoint, the definition of a great workplace is one where you trust the people you work with, you have great pride in what you do, and you enjoy the people you work with. 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. 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. Finally, there is an in-depth qualitative analysis of open ended comments from employees.
