Stelfox Is One Of The Best Places To Work In Ireland In 2019.
At the Great Place To Work Awards in the Clayton Hotel, Burlington Road, the Stelfox team turned out in force to celebrate our achievement. We were treated to an exhilarating carnival experience complete with singer Mary Byrne, stilt walkers, fire breathers, contortionists and even a gigantic Burmese albino python.
We are so proud to announce that Stelfox has been recognised as a Best Small Workplace 2019 by Great Place To Work.

The theme was based around ‘The Greatest Showman’ and Great Place To Work definitely put on the greatest show. Learn more about Great Place To Work and see our full gallery below.
Speaking about the award, Neil Sullivan, Director of Contract & Consulting at Stelfox said, “Gaining this recognition is a major endorsement of what we do. It’s a real privilege to be here with the Stelfox team and such an inspiring selection of companies and amazing entertainment. I cannot wait to continue our journey from Great Place to Work to Greater Place to Work. Bring on next year”.
John Ryan, CEO of Great Place to Work® Ireland said, “With a record high of more than 2.28 million now employed in Ireland, and unemployment at 5.7%, we’re on the cusp of the oft-cited ‘full employment’. That might serve to explain why this year, the number of employees assessed by Great Place to Work in Ireland has more than doubled. They’ve given us a clear sense of their workplace experience and the workplace practices that Irish organisations of every size are putting in place to drive that experience.”
“Securing a place on the list of Best Workplaces in Ireland is a greater achievement than ever before. These organisations have opened up to us, giving us a deep understanding of the culture that drives their performance. Even though we’re dealing with an unprecedented level of economic and political uncertainty, these Irish organisations are ready to deal with the challenges: they have built agility and plasticity into the core of their workplaces, developing the high levels of trust that are critical for adaptability. We have witnessed great confidence and high expectations across the whole employee population: but while they’re demanding a lot from their employers, they’re giving it back through high productivity, innovation, and performance. They want to work for organisations who are socially and environmentally responsible and are voting with their feet for those that aren’t. They demand that management differentiate performance and reward in kind. They refuse to accept low standards of communication, recognition, and management: but they go above and beyond for those that deliver. And that’s what allows these organisations to outperform the rest. Today’s workplace is a partnership, creating the future in tandem. It’s inclusive and has diversity at its core. It’s a really exciting place to be, and I’d like to congratulate each and every organisation that has achieved the goal of creating truly sustainable, high trust workplaces all across Ireland. We all deserve a Great Place to Work: and now we can have it!”
About Great Place to Work® and the Assessment Process.
Great Place to Work Ireland is part of a global network of culture consultants, with offices in 48 countries using an established methodology to publish lists at country, regional, and global levels. The best known of these is the Fortune 100 list of Best Companies to Work For in the United States. Our media partner in Ireland is The Irish Times, who develop the annual Best Workplaces Special Report.
The key defining feature of a great workplace is the level of trust that exists within it. From an employee’s viewpoint, the definition of a great workplace is one where you trust the people you work with, you have great pride in what you do, and you enjoy the people you work with. The Great Place to Work Institute assesses the policies and practices in place in organisations under nine key areas: Inspiring, Speaking, Listening, Caring, Developing, Thanking, Hiring, Celebrating, and Sharing. They then benchmark these practices against other organisations in that country. The second key component of the assessment is an anonymous Trust Index survey that gathers the perceptions of employees under five dimensions: Credibility, Respect, Fairness, Pride, and Camaraderie. Finally, there is an in-depth qualitative analysis of open-ended comments from employees.
