After being named one of the best workplaces in Ireland earlier this year, WP Engine Limerick has also been designated as one of the Best Workplaces in Tech by Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture.
Those call-outs join additional recognition received across our global offices this year, which marked the first time all WP Engine locations around the world became Great Place to Work-certified.
Becoming certified is the first step towards qualifying for one of Great Place to Work’s Best Workplaces lists, and certification is based on office or team size. This year, two of our locations, Australia and Poland, surpassed the threshold for certification and will be eligible for next year’s Best Workplaces lists.
“It’s amazing to watch our individuals grow and shape WP Engine. The collaboration, cohesiveness, and camaraderie of our teams on a global scale have allowed us to overcome challenges, innovate our approaches to work, and make WP Engine Ireland one of the Best Workplaces of 2021!”
“With our continued growth in Ireland, the recognition of WP Engine as a Great Place to Work will attract even more like-minded, enthusiastic individuals to join this amazing team.”
—Paul Ryan, WP Engine Sr. Director of Technical Support
Great Place to Work certification alone is a strong indicator of a company’s commitment to fostering an open, accepting workplace, with a strong culture that promotes transparency and trust. Placement on one of the Best Workplaces lists identifies the top companies from an already exemplary list that are leading the way in workplace culture.
Great Place to Work will continue releasing their exclusive best workplace lists for 2021 over the coming months. These additional lists are used to further categorize and break down certified Great Places to Work by factors like geographic region, industry, and diversity practices including Best Places to Work lists for parents, women, and millennials.
“The recognition only reinforces what I already know: that this is a great place to work. However, it also adds that sense of pride when speaking to friends and family about my role—I can add that we were voted one of Ireland’s GPTW!”
—Jason Campion, WP Engine Onboarding Manager
The Best Workplaces in Tech List for Ireland includes 25 companies, in no specific order, which were ranked highest by their employees on the Great Place to WorkⓇ Trust Index SurveyⒸ. A featured spot on this list shows Ireland, and the world, just how much of an impact WP Engine’s Limerick office is having on the tech industry, and it’s truly a testament to the expertise, hard work, integrity, and efforts of all our Limerick employees.
Through their platform, Great Place to Work allows employers to anonymously survey employees, giving leaders the data they need to retain talent and compare their culture to other Best Workplaces. At WP Engine, we use these insights to ensure our employees feel supported during their tenure with us, no matter how long or short.
“I like that the company takes employee wellbeing so seriously that they want to make sure they’re not missing anything and want to make it an even better environment for their staff.”
—Rick Love, WP Engine Product Manager
Thanks to all the technical support experts, software engineers, managers, onboarding specialists, analysts, architects, interns, and everyone else who have made this distinction possible. We’re excited to continue to support the amazing workplace you’re building in Limerick!
“Once you start working at WP Engine, it’s obvious from day 1 that this is a great place to work; the entire organization puts our core values into action every day, and the re-certification by GPTW reinforces what we already know: WP Engine is the place to be!”
—Tara Kelly WP Engine Manager, Order to Cash Operations
