Pramerica Systems Ireland Limited, a Prudential Financial, Inc. (PFI) [NYSE:PRU] subsidiary, was named among Europe’s best workplaces by Great Place to Work®. Pramerica earned the Number 23 spot in the category of best large workplaces.
“Earlier this year, we ranked Number 14 among Ireland’s ‘Best Workplaces’ and now Pramerica is recognized once again on an even broader scale,” said Caroline Faulkner, senior managing director and chief information officer at Pramerica Systems Ireland. “I’m proud of this recognition. It’s the talent and commitment of our team that strengthens our work environment and defines our success as a company.”
The Great Place to Work® study identifies and recognises the finest employers – and therefore the most satisfied workforces –throughout Europe. 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. Nearly 700,000 employees in more than 2,000 companies participated in the survey.
“The Great Workplace Era is a time when all people can expect to work for an organisation where they trust their leaders, enjoy their colleagues and take pride in what they do. A time, in other words, when workplaces make the world better,’ says China Gorman, global CEO of Great Place to Work. “This era is arriving in Europe and other parts of the globe. And it’s good news for everyone.”
