What sets apart a workplace where employees don't just work, but thrive? Is it the vibrant collaboration, the constant source of inspiration, or the shared dedication to excellence? These are the defining characteristics that 'Great Place to Work', the world's authoritative voice on workplace excellence, acknowledges each year.  As we embark into 2024, The Doyle Collection is thrilled to announce its continued inclusion as a 'Great Place to Work,' marking the company's seventh consecutive acknowledgment, and the first time that The Doyle Collection has received certification in the UK, Ireland and US- all territories in which the group’s hotel’s are based.

A Group-Wide Achievement

In a remarkable achievement, The Doyle Collection was acknowledged as a ‘Great Place to Work’ in Ireland, the UK and the US.  What sets this recognition apart is that The Doyle Collection is a group of 8 hotels with 21 restaurants in the heart of 5 vibrant cities around the globe.

Methodical Assessment by Great Place to Work

The Great Place to Work Institute's rigorous assessment methodically evaluates organisations trust levels.  The Trust Index© Employee Experience Survey measures the extent to which an organisation is considered to be a great workplace by its people. 

By gathering qualitative and quantitative data on the employee’s perception of their work experience, the survey provides essential information that enables us to understand the workplace environment.  This thorough analysis benchmarks these practices against peer organisations, offering valuable insights into what makes a workplace in all industries  truly outstanding.

Alan Smullen, Head of People at The Doyle Collection, expressed immense pride in the company's certification as a Great Place to Work, emphasising the genuine care and dedication woven into the fabric of The Doyle Collection's ethos:

"I am truly honoured by our seventh consecutive certification as a Great Place to Work, and thrilled that all of our 8 hotels and 21 bars and restaurants are acknowledged as inspirational and nurturing workplaces. This accomplishment resonates deeply with our commitment to fostering an environment where every team member is not just an employee, but a valued contributor to our shared success.
