8 Points on Enhancing Employee Experience Through the GPTW Programme

Anthony Hickey

In the final instalment of our Staying Connected Webinar Series, we would like to share a few insights on the benefits of the Great Place to Work Programme. From the perspectives of both the GPTW staff and a client organisation, we heard about how the programme promotes employee engagement, provides a valuable employer branding tool, and enriches employee experience.


How to Build a Great Place to Work

In this edition of our series, Great Place to Work team members, Brían, Fania and Cathal brought us through the stages of the GPTW programme. We were shown how any organisation, regardless of size, could develop a great culture, built on the foundation of trust.

  • A Great Workplace is one where you trust the people you work for, have pride in the work you do, and enjoy the people you work with.
  • The GPTW programme measures that trust, helping organisations build action plans to develop productive, positive, sustainable, and innovative workplaces for all.
