Top 50/100 Listings, Wellbeing | Wed 27 Apr | Author – Business & Finance

Business & Finance, in partnership with Ibec, launches ‘top 100 companies leading in wellbeing’ Index.

Today, Business & Finance media group in partnership with Ibec, the group that represents Irish business, has launched an index of the top 100 companies leading in wellbeing.

In recent years, employee wellbeing has continued to rise further up the agenda for employers. Public awareness of the importance of good workplace mental health and wellbeing is also growing. To move beyond good intention and to realise a true culture of wellbeing, employers must make positive health and wellbeing a core business priority.

This index, the first of its kind in Ireland, is timely and significant as it recognises the top businesses of all sizes who are leading the way and have improved their performance in supporting employee mental health and wellbeing. We hope this will encourage others to follow.

Speaking about the launch, Ibec CEO, Danny McCoy commented: “It is encouraging to note the diversity of industries spanning the full breadth and scope of the Irish economy that are represented in this index. These 100 companies that we are celebrating today are leading the way in workplace wellbeing and their commitment to instilling a best practice approach to wellbeing has made a lasting impact on their employee

Ian Hyland, Publisher of Business & Finance and President of Catalyst Media Group, commented on the launch: “As the world opens up and we start to return to the office, the importance of wellbeing in the workplace takes on an extra dimension. Working with our partners Ibec, we are delighted to support this very worthwhile initiative. As we navigate these new opportunities, it is critical that companies continue to place employee wellbeing at the heart of their strategy and priorities. Employees are, after all, our greatest asset.” 

Sophie Moran, Programme Manager of Ibec’s KeepWell Mark added: “Workplace wellbeing has risen to the top of the agenda for companies, and more frequently being called out as a core component of their business strategies. This is reflected in an increased focus by businesses on their workplace culture and ensuring it is conducive to staff attraction and retention.

“We’ve seen an increase in businesses seeking support in adapting their approach to new ways of working and getting strategic when it comes to embedding employee wellbeing. Our KeepWell programme and broader wellbeing supports are designed to support employers in implementing best in class wellbeing strategies. This is done through the accredited KeepWell framework, research insights, member forums, and specific training supports.” 

The index is comprised exclusively of companies in Ibec’s KeepWell community. The list focuses primarily on those companies who hold an active KeepWell Mark accreditation with exception being made to include a limited few companies, who upon entering the programme had already demonstrated a high standard of wellbeing performance and have put the appropriate measures in place to meet the standards of the KeepWell Mark and are scheduled for formal assessment.

By making the index an annual occurrence, Ibec expects to drive even greater public awareness of the importance of wellbeing in every workplace across the country.

The accreditation lasted 3 years, during which time OHSAS 18001 was replaced with ISO 45001. Following its transition to the new Occupational Health and Safety requirements of the ISO standard, Cork County Council became a first-time achiever in its field once again, achieving ISO 45001 accreditation, while the organisation supported the County Cork community in its response to Covid 19. Achieving yet another first for a local authority, Cork County Council was also accredited with the Ibec “KeepWell Mark” in November of 2020, due to dedicated efforts to promote health and wellbeing as part of the Safety Management System.
