Thousands of employees have spoken - and Ireland's best company to work for has been revealed.

Technology giant Dell has been ranked top of the list of firms to be employed by here.

Indeed have compiled a list of 25 companies to feature in 'Best Places to Work in the Private Sector in Ireland'. 

The list has been determined from the input of thousands of employee reviews.

"Dell EMC sites across Limerick, Cork and Dublin support our whole business across EMEA and having highly engaged, motivated staff is a vital element of success," said Marie Moynihan, Senior Vice President of Global Talent Acquisition at Dell.

 “As a company, we’re very focused on ensuring we create a fun, open environment where our employees can be themselves, innovate, enjoy their job and grow their capabilities and career at Dell.

"We provide flexible working options for employees to allow them to find a better balance between work and personal commitments. It’s an exciting time to be working at Dell and we’ll certainly celebrate this recognition with our employees today.”

Tech firms known for competitive salaries and employee perks such as Apple, Google and Intel also feature quite prominently on the list.

A number of major well known retailers have also been name checked including Argos, Marks and Spencer, Next and Penneys.

Flexible working arrangements and good opportunities for training have been cited as the reason behind these high rankings.

“While salary is a major factor in determining workplace satisfaction, it’s only one of a number of criteria on which employees judge their employer," Indeed's Paul D’Arcy said.

“Increasingly we see that the modern workforce optimises for happiness. Offering part-time and flexible hours, or even remote working, helps staff to achieve a better work/life balance. Tech employers famously invest heavily in flexible work arrangements, often giving them the competitive edge in attracting highly sought after talent."
