This year they’ve published three lists: Best Large Workplaces in Ireland, the Best Medium Workplaces in Ireland, and the Best Small Workplaces in Ireland.

So how exactly did these workplaces make the cut?

Listed workplaces are selected and ranked by Great Place to Work primarily on the basis of the confidential input from the employees of that organisation.

But while two-thirds of every workplace’s score comes from the results of the Trust Index Employee Survey, one third of the remaining marks based on a thorough assessment by Great Place to Work of a company-wide Culture Audit.
