Great Place to Work hosts numerous events throughout the year. Some of these are onsite events which offer great opportunities to get insights into a variety of organisations, and get a first-hand view of the efforts they make to improve the employee experience and foster trust in their organisation.
The events allow attendees to lift the lid on how these organisations have succeeded in tackling specific challenges along their journey to becoming a Great Place to Work.
The May 11th event, again in Dublin, is hosted by HR and financial management solutions firm Workday.
June sees the series move out of Dublin for the first time with the visit to internal communications software company Newsweaver in Cork on June 15th, before returning to Dublin for an event hosted by Vodafone at its Leopardstown HQ on June 22nd.
Moving out of Dublin again, this time to Athlone, the next event takes place at global biopharmaceutical company Alkermes on August 31st. Next up is an onsite at IT giant Cisco in Galway on October 19th.
That is followed by a seasonal event at the Guinness Storehouse followed by Christmas drinks at 6pm on December 21st.
These onsite events are complemented by management workshops where the Great Place to Work team shares key insights in an engaging and participative format to empower people managers in their attempts to build high-trust teams.
Other events throughout the year will include best-practice sessions, where research findings with great workplaces are presented.

The institute will also be taking to the road during the year to introduce the Great Place to Work Certification, and how the concepts, model and methodology involved can add value to organisations. The new premium certified standard for HR practice was introduced in 2016, and is based on extensive research in thousands of the best workplaces across the world and focuses on the key characteristics that deliver competitive advantage.
A major highlight of the year ahead will be the Great Place to Work Conference in Dublin on September 21st.
This will see hundreds of leaders from organisations throughout Ireland gather to hear a stellar line-up of speakers share their experience and learnings about leadership and achievement of high performance in great workplaces.
Speakers already confirmed for the conference include BBC human resources director Valerie Hughes D’Aeth, Insead associate professor of organisational behaviour Gianpiero Petriglieri, internationally acclaimed motivational speaker Manley Hopkinson, Bernard and Miriam Kennedy from Carlow Precast, and Woodies DIY chief executive Declan Ronayne.
