An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny T.D. attended
this event and congratulated all of this years organisations on their
commitment to creating great workplaces by saying:
“The governments aim is to make Ireland the best small country in the world in which to do business and I'm pleased to say our reputation is growing. Businesses in Ireland have demonstrated vibrancy and a commitment to economic recovery that is reflected in the positive spirit of these awards. The government will continue to implement the action plan for jobs so that more of our people can get back to work and experience the satisfaction and pride that these awards epitomise".
Human Resources Director at Kuehne+Nagel, Garry McCabe, says “We are absolutely delighted to be recognised as one of Ireland’s best workplaces and to reach the heights of 4th. When benchmarking ourselves against such luminaries as Microsoft, Diageo and Core Media we have truly exceeded our own aspirations. We are proud to represent our industry in a recognition process that is transparent and meritocratic. We are always focused on improving the work life experience of our people and we are looking forward to the new challenges that our lofty position now presents. Our journey has no end, as we will continue to set the bar higher and strive to exceed and try to enjoy ourselves along the way".
