We’re one of Ireland’s Best Workplaces™ 2022 and won a Special Award

We were delighted to be named one of Ireland’s Best Workplaces™ 2022 at the 20th Annual Great Place to Work® Awards Ceremony, which took place virtually on March 23rd. Global Shares was listed in the top 25 medium-sized Best Workplaces™ (100 – 250 employees), based on our employee numbers in Ireland in 2021.

This is Global Shares’ second consecutive year to be named as a top Irish workplace, and follows the announcement in December 2021 that we had achieved our Great Place to Work® accreditation for 2022.

In more good news we were also awarded a surprise Special Award by Great Place to Work® at the ceremony:

Reaching the criteria to appear on the list of ‘Best Workplaces in Ireland 2022′ and win the special ‘Talent Attraction’ Award is a fantastic achievement and provides a great platform for Global Shares to be recognised in how we differentiate ourselves as an employer.
The key defining feature of a ‘Great Workplace’ is the high level of trust that exists within it. We’ve got a unique and distinctive culture, which is very people-centric, and is captured in our five core values:
– People: We care about our people
– Bravery: We dare to do things differently
– Global: We are one global network
– Integrity: We are committed to professional integrity
– Service: We are client-focused

The Great Place to Work® Institute connects us to a large community of like-minded companies. Their experienced culture consultants advise us of focus areas to help us continue to raise the bar. We know that challenges remain ahead of us, but we’ve got an exciting five-year HR Plan and we’ll continue to mature on our journey as an accredited Great Place to Work.
