Ogier Leman is delighted to announce that they have been officially recognised as one of the Best Workplaces in Ireland in 2019. Leman were 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. This is Leman’s second 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.
Ogier Leman was recognised as a Best Small Workplace in Ireland 2019.
Speaking about the award, John Hogan, Managing Partner said “We are really pleased to be recognised again this year by Great Place to Work. Our team are the backbone of our business and we want to ensure that they happy, motivated and flourishing in the workplace. It has taken a lot of hard work and initiative to get to this position and it won’t stop here. Our core values of bravery, excellence and humanity underpin everything we do, and we try to ensure our culture really embodies these values. it is genuinely important for us to continue our efforts to make Leman a great place to work, both to attract the best new talent for our clients but also to nurture our great existing team to reach their potential and to enjoy their work and their workplace. The Great Place to Work experience is a journey, not a destination and I want to thank our fantastic team”.
“With a record high of more than 2.28 million now employed in Ireland, and unemployment at 5.7%, we’re on the cusp of the oft-cited ‘full employment’. That might serve to explain why this year, the number of employees assessed by Great Place to Work in Ireland has more than doubled. They’ve given us a clear sense of their workplace experience and the workplace practices that Irish organisations of every size are putting in place to drive that experience.” said John Ryan, CEO of Great Place to Work® Ireland.
“Securing a place on the list of Best Workplaces in Ireland is a greater achievement that ever before. These organisations have opened up to us, giving us a deep understanding of the culture that drives their performance. Even though we’re dealing with an unprecedented level of economic and political uncertainty, these Irish organisations are ready to deal with the challenges: they have built agility and plasticity into the core of their workplaces, developing the high levels of trust that are critical for adaptability. We have witnessed great confidence and high expectations across the whole employee population: but while they’re demanding a lot from their employers, they’re giving it back through high productivity, innovation, and performance. They want to work for organisations who are socially and environmentally responsible, and are voting with their feet for those that aren’t. They demand that management differentiate performance and reward in kind. They refuse to accept low standards of communication, recognition, and management: but they go above and beyond for those that deliver. And that’s what allows these organisations to outperform the rest. Today’s workplace is a partnership, creating the future in tandem. It’s inclusive and has diversity at its core. It’s a really exciting place to be, and I’d like to congratulate each and every organisation that has achieved the goal of creating truly sustainable, high trust workplaces all across Ireland. We all deserve a Great Place to Work: and now we can have it!”
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.
