All you need for the office and more!
Codex have long recognized the need for work to be a positive place to be and always strive to find the right work/life balance for our most important asset: our staff. In an ever changing landscape, our commitment to training and education of our staff is paramount to building a flexible and modern workforce and helps to keep staff motivation and retention high. Codex have created a safe, comfortable and appealing place for all to work and encourage staff to take breaks and timeouts as burn out benefits nobody. Two-way communication is a key part of our process and both managers and staff have the opportunity to provide feedback for each other making it possible for all to derive a sense of meaning from their work and to feel good about the company they work for.
We feel truly honoured with this award and feel that it is a huge accomplishment by everyone involved to rank so highly in our first year of participation. The award comes at a very exciting period for Codex who like most Irish SME’s are hoping for a great 2017 and are looking to kick start a number of initiatives bringing increased value and additional services to all our customers.
How do you make the list?
How exactly does a company make the list? Employee satisfaction is the main answer. A survey is conducted among all employees to assess their fulfilment towards the company. Winners are chosen by a council, based in large part on those responses.
Great Place to Work
Great Place to Work Ireland is part of a global network of culture consultants, with offices in 48 countries using an established methodology to publish lists at country, regional, and global levels. The best known of these is the Fortune 100 list of Best Companies to Work For in the United States.
The key defining feature of a great workplace is the level of trust that exists within it. From an employee’s viewpoint, the definition of a great workplace is one where you trust the people you work with, you have great pride in what you do, and you enjoy the people you work with. The Great Place to Work Institute assesses the policies and practices in place in organisations under nine key areas: Inspiring, Speaking, Listening, Caring, Developing, Thanking, Hiring, Celebrating, and Sharing. They then benchmark these practices against other organisations in that country.
The second key component of the assessment is an anonymous Trust Index survey that gathers the perceptions of employees under five dimensions: Credibility, Respect, Fairness, Pride, and Camaraderie. Finally, there is an in-depth qualitative analysis of open ended comments from employees.
