Zenith Technologies Named ‘Great Place to Work 2017’
In February this year, Zenith Technologies was officially recognised as a great place to work at the ‘Great Place to Work Best Workplaces in Ireland’ awards in Dublin.
With headquarters in Cork, Zenith’s recognition was based on an employee survey and an assessment of company-wide policies and practices. The company was listed as one of the ‘Best Medium Sized Workplace in Ireland 2017’.
Human resources director at Zenith Technologies Shea Fahy commented: "Zenith offers a variety of engineering career opportunities for those wishing to work for a global organisation with a world leading reputation. People are a big part of our success and we have been growing steadily for many years, currently employing more than 700 people across 16 offices worldwide.
"We are delighted to receive recognition for our commitment to fostering a positive working environment, developing our employees and helping them to reach their potential."
CEO of Great Place to Work® Ireland John Ryan commented: "It is clear from the results of our assessment survey that employees from Ireland’s Best Workplaces believe that clients and customers can trust their organisations. This is an invaluable vote of confidence from their employees and is probably the reason why staff in the companies are comfortable using all their talents to the benefit of those organisations.
"Zenith Technologies, along with the other companies that have achieved this recognition, have separated themselves from their peers by leveraging the power of trust to the benefit of all their stakeholders, and that is why I want to extend my congratulations on a wonderful achievement."
Employees at Ireland’s nominated ‘Best Workplaces’ report a significantly greater sense of job security than those in peer organisations. This level of employee confidence in the face of an uncertain future provides these organisations with a workforce that is engaged, focused on the task at hand, and eager to offer their contribution to future successes.
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. It uses 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 US.
Great Place to Work’s key defining feature of a great workplace is the level of trust that exists within. The organization claims the definition of a great workplace from an employee’s point of view 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 areas including 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 credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie. Finally, there is an in-depth qualitative analysis of open ended comments from employees.
