Great Place to Work® Best Workplaces® 2021
ORS is delighted to be officially recognised as one of the Best Workplaces in Ireland in 2021. This is the firm’s 3rd consecutive year to be named a top Irish workplace – ranking in the top 20 on the prestigious list and the highest placed building consultancy across all categories.
Great Place to Work recognition is assessed through the robust ‘Trust Index©’ employee survey and a thorough ‘Culture Audit©’ assessment of organisational policies and practices. In a year where businesses were under considerable pressure, these practices, people and teams underpin the ongoing commitment to creating high trust environments and incredible cultures, despite the circumstances.
“I am very proud that ORS has been certified a Great Place to Work for the third year in a row. Our team’s resilience, dedication, and adaptability have shone through an incredibly challenging year. Our culture is one of our greatest assets, and we are truly committed to listening to those who are most important in the Great Place to Work process – our people. I want to acknowledge and thank our entire team for their unwavering commitment and contributions through 2020,” John Brennan, Managing Director at ORS.
Achieving and sustaining organic growth requires an engaged and able workforce in a post Covid-19 environment. “In a year where the concept of ‘place’ was unexpectedly ripped apart from the concept of ‘work’, these organisations have shown the strength and resilience that underlies the Great Place to Work ethos. Having developed a deep sense of trust within and across their teams, they have proved that anywhere – from a manufacturing facility to a spare bedroom – can be a Great Place to Work. What matters are the fundamentals: treating your employees with fairness and respect, and keeping them up to speed with relevant, authentic, and honest communication.” said Cathal Divilly, CEO at Great Place to Work® Ireland.
