Ergo, Ireland’s leading professional IT services company, was ranked 12th in the annual Great Place to Work awards last night.
Winning the Best Medium Sized Workplace award was entirely down to the company’s employees. According to the Great Place to Work Institute, 81% of Ergo employees responded to a survey where the participation rate is usually closer to 70%, indicating a high level of interest and engagement - a ringing endorsement of the company’s workplace practices.
This prestigious accolade was presented at the Great Place to Work Awards in the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, Dublin on Wednesday 26th February. The event was attended by An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny T.D., who congratulated all of this year’s organisations on their commitment to creating great workplaces.
About GPTW awards
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.
