Zenith Technologies Named One of the Best Workplaces for Second Consecutive Year

Posted on February 22, 2018 by Helena Rogers

Zenith Technologies is delighted to announce that it has been recognised as one of the Best Workplaces in 2018 in the annual Great Place to Work awards ceremony in Dublin on Wednesday 21st February. This is the company’s second consecutive year to be named as a top workplace.

Zenith received the accolade following the findings of a robust employee survey and a thorough assessment of their policies and practices by the Great Place to Work Institute.

Shea Fahy, human resource director at Zenith Technologies said: “All of us at Zenith are thrilled to receive this award for the second year running, and especially proud as this year we celebrate our 20th year in operation.

This initiative gives us great insight into what we are doing well and what needs improving. We take feedback from the survey and execute an action plan based on the feedback which we will continue to deliver to ensure our focus is in the areas that matter to our people across all regions.”

In 2018, Great Place to Work® enters its sixteenth year of recognising great workplaces with the publication of their Best Workplaces lists, and the number of workplaces who are realising the benefits of empowering their employees to flourish in a supportive high-trust culture continues to increase.

“It’s been a mixed year for workplaces”, said John Ryan, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Those who have seen good trading growth is tempered by ongoing uncertainty over the impact Brexit will have. Infrastructure challenges are making planning for expansion difficult, and we’re on the threshold of full employment in our cities which creates a real headache for organisations who are trying to attract and retain top talent.

“The organisations on this year’s list know that beyond a certain point, employees aren’t going to be tempted by a slightly more generous financial package: they want an environment where they feel psychologically safe, encouraged to grow, provided with opportunities to develop, and empowered to do their best work. Rather than simply throwing money at their staff, workplaces should take advantage of reward and recognition opportunities as a chance to develop their employer brand; enhancing and amplifying their unique culture.”

About Great Place to Work® and the Assessment Process

Great Place to Work 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.

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.
