Two Donegal employers are among the top 100 companies in Ireland when it comes to employee well being.
Letterkenny-based Pramerica and Zeus have made the list which was published today by Ibec, the group that represents Irish business, in partnership with Business & Finance Media Group.
The Leading in Wellbeing – Top 100 Companies 2021 index recognises companies leading the way in workplace wellbeing. These employers are praised for their commitment to instilling a best practice approach to wellbeing and creating a lasting impact on their employees and on the business community.
In their statement, Pramerica said nurturing their talent is at the heart of how they operate.
“We work hard to foster a diverse and inclusive work environment and workplace wellness is one of our top priorities. Situated in scenic Donegal, recently named one of the Coolest Places on the Planet by National Geographic, our workforce benefit from a vibrant culture both in and out of the office.”
Zeus said that central to their founder’s philosophy is their EPIC values: Excellence, People, Integrity, and Creativity.
“And the attainment of the IBEC KeepWell marks a significant achievement in our ongoing commitment to our team members’ wellbeing.”
In recent years, employee wellbeing has continued to rise further up the agenda for employers. Public awareness of the importance of good workplace mental health and wellbeing is also growing. To move beyond good intention and to realise a true culture of wellbeing, employers must make positive health and wellbeing a core business priority.
This index, the first of its kind in Ireland, is timely and significant as it recognises the top businesses of all sizes who are leading the way and have improved their performance in supporting employee mental health and wellbeing.
The index is composed exclusively of companies in Ibec’s KeepWell community. The list focuses primarily on those companies who hold an active KeepWell Mark accreditation with exception being made to include a limited few companies, who upon entering the programme had already demonstrated a high standard of wellbeing performance and have put the appropriate measures in place to meet the standards of the KeepWell Mark and are scheduled for formal assessment.
By making the index an annual occurrence, Ibec expects to drive even greater public awareness of the importance of wellbeing in every workplace across the country.
