Dell is best place to work, says Irish employees
Job site Indeed has compiled a list of 25 companies to feature in ‘Best Places to Work in the Private Sector in Ireland’, with tech giant Dell coming out on top. The list was determined from the input of thousands of employee reviews. According to Marie Moynihan, Senior Vice President of Global Talent Acquisition at Dell: “Dell EMC sites across Limerick, Cork and Dublin support our whole business across EMEA and having highly engaged, motivated staff is a vital element of success.
“As a company, we’re very focused on ensuring we create a fun, open environment where our employees can be themselves, innovate, enjoy their job and grow their capabilities and career at Dell.
“We provide flexible working options for employees to allow them to find a better balance between work and personal commitments. It’s an exciting time to be working at Dell and we’ll certainly celebrate this recognition with our employees today.”
Other tech firms such as Intel, Apple and Google feature on the list along with Next, Penneys and Marks and Spencer. Some of the reasons cited for a company’s high ranking include opportunities for training and flexible working arrangements.
“While salary is a major factor in determining workplace satisfaction, it’s only one of a number of criteria on which employees judge their employer,” Indeed’s Paul D’Arcy said.
“Increasingly we see that the modern workforce optimises for happiness. Offering part-time and flexible hours, or even remote working, helps staff to achieve a better work/life balance. Tech employers famously invest heavily in flexible work arrangements, often giving them the competitive edge in attracting highly sought after talent.”
