"For us as a company having highly engaged, motivated staff is a vital element of our continued success.”

According to Paul Wolfe, Senior Vice President of Human Resources at global job site, Indeed, people are looking for more than remuneration when it comes to their careers.

"Attraction of staff - let alone their continued retention - demands investment in work-life balance, flexibility, a supportive and collaborative working environment and opportunities to progress and learn, and this is evident in the companies we have ranked today.

“While attractive perks and flexible working conditions are often associated with the arrival of US tech names in the Irish market, this year’s rankings show that investment in people is being prioritised right across a range of sectors, from retail to technology and from healthcare to hospitality.”
