WP Engine Ireland has once again earned recognition as one of the country’s Best Workplaces by Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture. 

This is WP Engine Ireland’s seventh individual certification in just eight years, adding to a growing list of accolades for company culture and employee wellbeing.

“Since our Limerick office opened in 2016, we have done our best to prioritize the wellness and work-life balance of our team members,” said Haidee McMahon, WP Engine Sr. Director of Product and Limerick Site Leader. 

“This recognition shows that our hard work is paying off, and we are truly honored to be Great Place to Work-certified for the fourth consecutive year.”

Read on to learn more about Great Place to Work, the selection process for certified companies, and the Great Place to Work recognition WP Engine has received over the years.

How WP Engine Ireland Earned Recognition

WP Engine Ireland was officially certified after an independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work Ireland. To identify the workplaces that meet the criteria of a Great Workplace, the institute uses data collected from employees who fill out the Trust Index Survey™

Great Place to Work certification places WP Engine Ireland among an elite group of companies that are hyper-focused on creating work environments where employees can thrive both personally and professionally. This year, WP Engine was ranked sixth out of 44 certified companies in the medium-sized business category.

What is Great Place to Work?

Great Place to Work published its first Best Workplaces list in 1984. In the 40 years since, the company has surveyed thousands of employers to identify the very best—those that prioritize their staff to create a culture in which both the business and its employees can thrive. 

According to the Great Place to Work Trust Model, the company identifies Great Workplaces as those where employees report that they:

  1. Trust the people they work for.
  2. Take genuine pride in their work.
  3. Enjoy collaborating with their colleagues
  4. Experience a consistent workplace atmosphere, irrespective of their role, identity, or position within the organization.

How are Great Workplaces Selected?

Companies that hope to earn certification survey employees and submit the anonymous data they collect to Great Place to Work. Then, Great Place to Work is able to contextualize those survey results by benchmarking the data against similar companies to identify top performers.

Once a company is certified as a Great Workplace, it can go on to receive additional certifications based on its survey results. These additional recognitions are awarded to the Best Workplaces for employees within a certain demographic, location, or industry.

WP Engine’s Great Workplace Journey

In 2017, WP Engine earned its first certification from Great Place to Work. 

In the years since, the company has earned more than 30 individual certifications, from the generalized Great Workplace recognition to placement on international lists in the UK, Ireland, and Poland, to specialized certifications as a Best Workplace in Tech, for Women, and for Wellness

Last year, WP Engine earned six certifications from Great Place to Work, being recognized as one of the Best Workplaces in Texas, Best Workplaces for Millennials in Poland, and Best Workplaces in Tech in Ireland, among others.
