Greenlife Tours Ltd, the company behind IrelandWays.com, is delighted to announce that they have been officially recognised as one of the Best Workplaces in Ireland in 2020. Greenlife Tours Ltd was recognised at the 18th annual Great Place to Work Best Workplaces in Ireland awards in the Clayton Hotel on Burlington Road, Dublin on Wednesday 26th February 2020.
This is Greenlife Tours Ltd’s first year to be named as a top Irish workplace, which is assessed through Great Place to Work’s robust ‘Trust Index©’ employee survey and a thorough ‘Culture Audit©’ assessment of their policies and practices.
Greenlife Tours Ltd was recognised as the one of the Best Small Workplace in Ireland 2020.
“We’re delighted to be recognised as a Great Place to Work in 2020. Our goal is to create life-changing experiences for our customers, and this wouldn’t be possible without the dedication and commitment of our hard-working employees,” explains Claire Da Silva, Customer Experience Director at Greenlife Tours.
“It’s extremely encouraging to see that our employees are proud to work for GreenLife Tours and consider this to be a fun and friendly work environment. Our company strives to cultivate a workplace that attracts and develops the best people so that they can be fulfilled in the work that they do,” adds Holly Cummins, Human Resources Executive at Greenlife Tours.
“Strong economic conditions have resulted in another record year for total number of employees participating in the Best Workplaces in Ireland process. The ‘war for talent’ is continuing apace with the best employers in Ireland competing for specific industry-critical skills, while a range of external social pressures are forcing organisations to develop innovative initiatives to help alleviate burdens faced by their employees.” said Cathal Divilly, Partner at Great Place to Work® Ireland.
“Reaching the criteria to appear on the list of Best Workplaces in Ireland is a massive achievement, and has provided a great platform for these organisations to differentiate themselves both externally and internally as employers of choice. While attractive benefit packages will go some way towards employee satisfaction, the companies on this year’s list have realised that their unique and distinctive cultures are what will mark them out in a crowded market. This year’s survey findings show that employees in these workplaces feel greater levels of organisational pride than ever before.
“Overall, these companies are marking themselves out by providing a distinctive sense of meaning in both personal and organisational roles for their staff. Each and every organisation on this year’s list has reason to celebrate: I’d like to take the time to say congratulations to all of Ireland’s Best Workplaces 2020!”
ABOUT GREAT PLACE TO WORK® AND THE ASSESSMENT PROCESS
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. Our media partner in Ireland is The Irish Times, who develop the annual Best Workplaces Special Report.
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.
