PEI Recognised as Great Place to Work

PEI is delighted to be officially recognised as a Best Workplace in Ireland 2013. This prestigious accolade was presented at the Great Place to Work Awards in the Burlington Hotel Dublin on Thursday 7th March. The event was attended by Minister of State for European Affairs Lucinda Creighton who complimented all the organisations for creating high trust workplaces which she said leads to a clear competitive advantage especially when trading internationally.

Commenting on the wonderful achievement by 49 organisations, CEO of the Great Place to Work John Ryan, said that competition for places on the list was at its highest in 10 years as more organisations had chosen to go through the assessment process, clearly appreciating the business benefits of having a high performing workplace where employees are seen as having a critical impact. “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 organisation your people will be your best asset and will be key to your business success”

For PEI this is incredible news given that we only decided to re-enter the awards this year with a view to longer term success, having taken a few years out of the competition between 2008 and 2012. PEI had previously featured in the Best Companies Awards for five years running, between 2003 and 2007, winning the overall 50-100 category in 2006.
