DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Globoforce®, a leading provider of human applications , has been named as one of the Best Workplaces in Europe in 2018 by the Great Place to Work Institute®. Globoforce ranked number 45 on the 2018 annual list which comprises more than 2,000 companies across Europe. Globoforce has consistently been placed on Great Place to Work listings both in Ireland and internationally for the past 11 years. In Ireland, Globoforce ranked second in 2018, sixth in 2017, and seventh in 2016 as a Best Medium Workplace. Internationally, Globoforce came in at number 12 in the Best Small and Medium Workplaces in Europe in 2015.
Through its award-winning technology and HR software, Globoforce empowers organisations to create a positive culture that fosters human connections as a strategy to create a high-performing, diverse, and inclusive workplace. The company pioneered the WorkHuman movement to help make work more human for millions of people and organisations worldwide.
Globoforce recently announced WorkHuman® Cloud, a new suite of human applications to recognize and celebrate employees’ work and lives, creating stronger relationships and more socially connected teams. Unlike other HR software solutions that manage data, governance, and bureaucratic tasks, WorkHuman Cloud is human-centered with a social, transparent, crowdsourced, and team-driven approach in tune with how work gets done today. By empowering all employees and managers to celebrate career and life milestones, recognize ongoing work achievements, and offer developmental feedback, people leaders can create a stronger, more authentic community in the workplace.
Niamh Graham, vice president of global HR at Globoforce said: “I would like to again thank our employees for making Globoforce an incredible place to work. Our culture is truly unique and reflects the fantastic team based in Dublin and further afield who have all contributed to the positive environment created and reported in today’s Great Place to Work listings. This recognition is most certainly dedicated to the entire team.”
More than 1.6 million employees from 2,800 companies across Europe participated in the survey process for the 2018 Best Workplaces in Europe list. The ranking assessed employees’ perspectives on leadership, innovation, inclusion, organisational culture, and trust.
Great Place to Work’s CEO, Michael Bush said: “The organisations on this year’s Best Workplaces in Europe list represent forward-thinking cultures that cultivate inclusion for ALL. They understand that employees are people first and foremost and provide them with environments where they can be themselves, build strong bonds, and thrive with their peers.”
Globoforce is an Irish-American company founded by Dubliner Eric Mosley, which is headquartered in Park West in Dublin, Ireland and Framingham, Massachusetts.
About the Best Workplaces in Europe List
Great Place to Work® identifies the top organisations that create great workplaces in Europe through publishing the annual Best Workplaces in Europe list. The list recognises companies in four size categories: Under 50 Employees, Small & Medium (50-500); Large (501+); and Multinational. To be considered for inclusion, companies must appear on one or more of our national lists in one of the 19 countries represented on the list and meet our minimum quantitative threshold on the Trust Index© survey. In addition, workplaces in the Multinational category must have at least 1,000 employees distributed across 3 or more countries and appear on at least 3 national lists. The 2018 Best Workplaces in Europe list is based on data collected for national lists published over the last 12 months.
