Once again, Globoforce has been honoured as a best place to work!
Following on the heels of our naming as the Top Place to Work in the Small Business Category by The Boston Globe, the Great Places To Work® Institute has ranked Globoforce #13 in the Best Workplaces in Ireland for 2013 for medium-sized workplaces.
I couldn’t agree more with my CEO, Eric Mosley, who had this to say:
“We are incredibly proud to be named as one of the Best Workplaces in Ireland. Our culture is paramount to everything we do inside and outside the company. It is an environment based upon the foundation of employee recognition and appreciation, all driven by the dedication and hard work of our amazing employees. This award is dedicated to them, as they’re the reason why Globoforce is the successful organisation it is today.”
Globoforce earned this position based on comments from our employees in response to a Great Places to Work survey. Our employees said:
- 93% believe everyone has the opportunity to get special recognition
- 97% are proud to tell others they work at Globoforce
- 96% think people are treated fairly
- 95% feel Globoforce is a great place to work
The Great Place to Work Institute assesses the 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.
In my career at Globoforce, the thing I am most proud of is the people I have the honour and privilege of working with every day. They are what make our culture strong, powerful and, yes, appreciative. I give my thanks to all of them for the joy they bring to my work.
