Some of the Pramerica Team!DONEGAL-based Pramerica Systems Ireland has been named among Ireland’s Best Workplaces by Great Place to Work® Ireland.Pramerica, with 1,100 employees in Letterkenny, earned the Number 14 spot in the category ‘Best Large Workplaces.’“So much of being a “Great Place to Work” comes down to an organisation’s people. It’s the talent and commitment of our team that strengthens our work environment and defines our success as a company,” said Caroline Faulkner, senior managing director and chief information officer in Letterkenny. “I’m proud of this recognition. Our culture of mutual respect and teamwork means that we celebrate our professional and personal accomplishments together, and this award is shared by everyone in our organisation.”The Great Place to Work® study identifies and recognises the finest employers – and therefore the most satisfied workforces – in Ireland and throughout the European Union.Employees in each participating organisation complete a confidential questionnaire, rating their employers on almost 60 elements covering credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie in the workplace.Surveys are returned to the Great Place to Work® Institute by each individual employee to ensure confidentiality and honesty. More than 90,000 employees in over 100 Irish companies participated in the survey. John Ryan, CEO of Great Place to Work Ireland said: “These companies have proven the clear link between high trust and high performance. They are ahead of the rest because they don’t deliver mere platitudes about the importance of their employees to their business; rather, they create a rich culture supported by people practices that ensure higher levels of collaboration, greater input into strategy development and vision shaping, and distributed decision making throughout their population – making sure that the people with the most relevant knowledge are tasked with making those decisions.”Pramerica Systems Ireland provides essential computer-technology and client-contact services to PFI businesses around the world.
