Great Place to Work Awards 2017, CMCN Staff

What a night at the Great Places to Work Event! We had one hell of a party. Over 800 attendees, over 100 companies, guest appearances from Mario Rosenstock (in the guise of Daniel O’ Donnell, Jose Mourinho, and Enda Kenny) and Jason Donovan! For those of you who were not fans of Neighbours in the mid-1980s – Jason was a really big deal back then. As always the brilliant Camembert Quartet entertained us for the night and kept the proceedings moving along, and John Ryan, CEO of GTPW, was excellent once again as the MC for the evening.

We are absolutely delighted to be recognised as a Great Place to Work for the third year in a row, and making it into the top ten Great Places to Work in Ireland for the second year in a row was really special and something we are really proud of.

Well done to all the companies who achieved the status of Great Place to Work in 2017. It is a fantastic endorsement of the excellent employee engagement initiatives that are being worked on throughout the country in a variety of companies big and small, it clearly shows that employee engagement is alive and well. We heard about some brilliant employee engagement initiatives from companies such as Cisco, Abbvie, SAP, Alkermes, Regeneron and many more. But it’s not just multinationals, Irish SMEs are really awaking to the idea that indeed “culture does eat strategy for breakfast every day.”

Finally, on behalf of everyone in Collins McNicholas I want to say a BIG BIG thank you to all those who contributed to the Culture team throughout the last year. Looking forward to seeing what the culture team comes up with for 2017!!
