top 5 places to work for Ireland

Sigmar is delighted to announce that we have been officially recognised as one of Ireland’s Best Workplaces 2016.

 

Sigmar were announced as the 4th best workplace in Ireland (employing under 100 staff) and were the highest placed recruitment agency in Ireland. This prestigious accolade was presented at the Great Place to Work Awards in the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, Dublin on Wednesday 24th February.

 

Commenting on the fantastic achievement for all 65 organisations that have been recognised this year, CEO of Great Place to Work Ireland, John Ryan said that –

 

“At this stage, most organisations have seen the importance of defining their culture and supporting its development with practices, real lived values, and a clear set of desired behaviours to drive organisational performance. In the past, only the most progressive companies focused on these areas. Today it is the norm. If organisations don’t have clear metrics around their people performance and engagement they are seen as laggards. It is now common to see monthly reports via pulse systems monitoring engagement levels, enabling interventions to be fashioned in real time. This year’s listed organisations have gone one step further, ensuring there is a clear alignment between their culture, climate, structure, practices and behaviours. This creates an employee experience where talent can thrive, and the organisation can adapt and achieve. Personally, I would like to congratulate each and every person in the organisations who have achieved the status of ‘great’, as it is clear that leadership or HR cannot make this happen alone. It is a group effort that requires everybody’s energy, enthusiasm, and engagement.”

This was followed by an interview with former Taoiseach John Bruton, by Dr.Robert Mauro from Global Leadership Institute at Boston College. Both former leaders shared their thoughts on their term in office as well on the current political and economic landscape on issues such as Brexit and the US elections. This exclusive event was attended virtually by over 200 CEOs from both sides of the Atlantic and was the first time the event was held virtually. Born from partnerships formed during Boston College's college football game in Dublin in 2016, the BCIBC has grown to become a key business artery between Ireland and the US. The BCIBC is seen as the EU chapter of Boston College’s CEO Club, the second largest CEO forum in the world, next to WEF in Davos.
