Great Place to Work® Names Castle Leslie Estate as one of the Best Workplaces™ in Hospitality in 2024

Great Place to Work® Ireland have this week recognised Castle Leslie Estate as one of Ireland’s Best WorkplacesTM in Hospitality in 2024.

In its first year, the Best WorkplacesTM in Hospitality is an industry recognition compiled by Great Place to Work Ireland to recognise the top hotels who are paving the way for greatness in the hospitality industry. With over 39,575 employees in the hotel industry invited to be surveyed in the last couple of years, Great Place to Work were able to investigate and understand the employee experience within these workplaces – 50 organisations were then acknowledged as the best in the sector.

Due to the industry’s inherently people-centric nature, prioritising employee needs is paramount; when the quality of service is directly influenced by the attitudes and wellbeing of staff, ensuring that employees feel valued, supported, and motivated is crucial. In a sector known for its high turnover rates, prioritising employee needs helps attract and retain top talent, reducing recruitment and training costs. By investing in their workforce through continuous professional development, fair compensation, and a positive work environment, the Best Workplaces in Hospitality have built resilient, dedicated teams, essential for sustaining long-term success and competitiveness.

This recognition uses the global standard Best Workplaces methodology as its basis. To be considered for this recognition, participating organisations are required to be CertifiedTM as a Great Place to Work first and be in the hotel sector.
