Great Place to Work awards software provider twelfth place for 2017
DUBLIN & LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 8, 2017--
Guidewire Software, Inc. (NYSE: GWRE), a provider of software products
to general insurers, today announced that it has been named as one of
Workplaces in Ireland 2017 by the Great Places to Work
Institute. At an awards ceremony held in Dublin in February, Guidewire
was placed twelfth in the medium-sized workplaces category. This is the
second time Guidewire has received Best Workplaces in Ireland
recognition and the second year it has entered the programme.
The Best Workplaces awards are determined by the results of an
independent, third-party survey in which employees from hundreds of
Irish-based, and headquartered, organisations participate. Employers are
ranked on topics including work culture, management practices and
behaviors, trust in colleagues and senior leaders, compensation and
benefits, and the perception that their contribution is valued.
"We feel very honoured to be recognised as a Best Workplace in Ireland,"
said Ian Creamer, vice president, Human Resources, EMEA, Guidewire
Software. "Guidewire is fortunate to have such a diverse, engaged and
dynamic team in Dublin. They are central to our success as a global
business, and have grown steadily in number since we established this
Irish base. It is their commitment and enthusiasm that underpins the
professional yet fun environment recognised by this award.”
“It is always a challenge to ensure the right mix of expertise in a
company that strives to provide high levels of customer service,” said
Dan Lonborg, senior director, software engineering, Guidewire Software.
“By locating our product development and services teams together, we
have seen our people develop strong professional and personal
relationships which ensure a solid collaborative work culture, as well
as enhanced customer support. We aim to offer a creative and happy work
environment where our colleagues can thrive and feel valued. This award
shows our staff are in agreement; as a company we must continue to earn

worldwide. Visit our Careers

About Great Place to Work
Great Place to Work Ireland is part of a global network of culture
consultants, with offices in 48 countries using an established
methodology to publish lists at country, regional, and global levels.
The best known of these is the Fortune 100 list of Best Companies to
Work For in the United States.
The key defining feature of a great workplace is the level of trust that
exists within it. From an employee’s viewpoint, the definition of a
great workplace is one where you trust the people you work with, you
have great pride in what you do, and you enjoy the people you work with.
The Great Place to Work Institute assesses the policies and practices in
place in organisations under nine key areas: Inspiring, Speaking,
Listening, Caring, Developing, Thanking, Hiring, Celebrating, and
Sharing. They then benchmark these practices against other organisations
in that country. The second key component of the assessment is an
anonymous Trust Index survey that gathers the perceptions of employees
under five dimensions: Credibility, Respect, Fairness, Pride, and
Camaraderie. Finally, there is an in-depth qualitative analysis of open
ended comments from employees.
The 2017 full list of organisations and award winners, as well as
rankings from previous years, are available at www.greatplacetowork.ie.
