Crown Roofing & Cladding Ltd has been recognised as one of the Best Workplaces in Ireland in 2021 at the 19th annual Great Place to Work Best Workplaces in Ireland awards. This is the company’s second consecutive year to be named as a top Irish workplace, which is assessed through the Great Place to Work’s robust ‘Trust Index©’ employee survey and a thorough ‘Culture Audit©’ assessment of its policies and practices.
Emma O’Gorman Wall, Chief Operating Officer, Crown Roofing & Cladding, said: “We are delighted to be named as one of the Best Workplaces in Ireland 2021 for the second year in a row. This accreditation is a testament to the hard work of the managers and employees who consistently make this company a great place to work. Well done to all our employees, and thank you for your valued support and incredible work ethic and dedication.”
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.
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 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 employees’ perceptions under five dimensions: Credibility, Respect, Fairness, Pride, and Camaraderie. Finally, there is an in-depth qualitative analysis of open-ended comments from employees.
