DUBLIN, IE – (February 27, 2020) – Liferay International, which makes software that helps companies create digital experiences on web, mobile, and connected devices, today announced that the company has been officially recognised as one of the Best Workplaces in Ireland in 2020. Liferay International 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 Liferay International’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 employer policies and practices.
“We are immensely proud to be recognized as one of Ireland’s best workplaces,” said Veronica Rodriguez Cabezas, Director of Liferay International and Global Operations. “As a team we’ve always striven to build a culture that emphasizes trust and high performance. Being awarded with one of the most important recognitions a company can receive is a testament to the hard work of both our human resources department and the people we hire, who have made our culture what it is. I look forward to watching our team continue to grow and improve in the coming years.”
“Strong economic conditions have resulted in a record 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 help them stand 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, which is being supported by internal CSR initiatives that emphasise employee ownership and decision-making. Organisations are responding to the housing crisis and commuter pressures by offering more flexible work-from-home and work-life balance arrangements. Employees are seeking a greater sense of purpose from their roles, and companies are attempting to meet this by implementing strong green initiatives with a real, authentic focus on sustainability. Overall, these companies are distinguishing themselves by providing a powerful 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!”
