Esri Ireland ranked in top 25 European workplaces

  • Tech firm Esri Ireland has been named as one of the Best Workplaces in Europe, following its earlier win this year as the Best Small Workplace in Ireland.

    The Geographic Information Systems (GIS) specialist has ranked 22nd for the medium-sized enterprise category in Great Place to Work’s 2020 report on Europe’s Best Workplaces.

    It also received a separate ‘Best Great Place to Work Team Award’ at the 18th annual Great Place to Work awards, for its efforts to foster a listening workplace environment through a range of internal culture initiatives.

    Over the last four consecutive years, Esri Ireland has consistently featured in the top-tier of Ireland’s ‘Best Small Workplaces’ rankings, ascending steadily from 13th place in 2017, to sixth in 2018, to runner-up in 2019, and now first place in 2020.

    It joins other high-profile employers on the European stage such as Dropbox, Salesforce and Cisco Systems.

    Workplaces are assessed through Great Place to Work’s employee ‘Trust Index’ survey and a thorough ‘Culture Audit’ of their policies and practices.

    Paul Synnott, managing director at Esri Ireland said: “Since we began our Great Place to Work journey, we’ve grown our team from 37 employees in 2016 to 59 employees currently.

    “We now use the Great Place to Work model as a compass to reinforce our vision, mission and most importantly, our company values.

    “This framework has helped us to foster a culture of openness, transparency and authenticity across our business – a hallmark of our company’s success to date.

    “Our recognition on the European stage is a reflection of the progressive strides we have made in recent years from an employee engagement and wellbeing perspective, and we look forward to building on this work in the years ahead.

    “The Great Place to Work mindset has permeated our entire workforce, instilling a tremendous sense of purpose, loyalty and pride in the work we do together.”
