Work Happy 100: Where are Ireland’s happiest workplaces?

Aoife Geary

Work Happy 100 is an awards series celebrating Ireland’s happiest workplaces, as nominated by their employees.

Run by careers marketplace Jobbio and, Work Happy 100 awards the employers dedicated to achieving workplace happiness. It’s not about flashy perks or cool offices. The winners of Work Happy 100 will have shown a real commitment to creating workspaces where their teams are happy and successful.

What’s the prize?

Winning companies will receive a Jobbio package worth €25,000 and a full feature in the special edition Work Happy 100 magazine in the Irish Independent. There will also be a €1000 prize for the employee who nominates the winning company (terms and conditions apply).

The awards cover four categories - graduate programmes, small businesses, medium businesses and large enterprise. Employees can nominate their current or former workplace by going to and filling out a short form explaining the reason behind their nomination. There are no strict rules around the length of entries and reasons can be anything from excellent parental leave to a supportive and friendly culture.

The awards are underpinned by the Jobbio Work Happy Indexes, research reports which examine what makes people truly happy in their jobs. They highlight the evolving priorities of today’s talent and form the basis of these awards themselves. They examine career development, culture and rewards as motivators for our current workforce. These awards are designed to help companies gain a better insight into the motivations of their teams which leads to increased productivity, creativity and retention among employees.

How are the overall winners chosen?

The awards are judged by an expert panel including Will Brightling, CEO at Dublin Tech Summit, and Balanced co-founders Lauren Buckley and Grace O’Rourke. The winners will be announced at Dublin Tech Summit on April 10-11 in the RDS.

Nominations can be submitted at until February 21.
