Ireland’s oldest hotel, Woodenbridge Hotel in luscious County Wicklow has been certified as a Great Place to work!
The hotel has already been enjoying rave reviews from their customers and now it seems the rave reviews are coming from their team. As more and more hotels are now affiliated with hotel groups, perhaps being one of the few genuinely Irish, family run hotels left may have something to do with it?
It has long been recognised by our guests that the quality of our people are our biggest asset. This is something we’re very much aware of and we genuinely try and creates a positive working environment. This award recognises this and we’re determined now to work even harder to keep improving and ensure we remain a Great place to work.’ – Gerard O’Brien, Director
With the current shortages of labour across many industries but particularly within the hospitality and tourism sector, having a distinguishable certification is certainly one way to stand out from the crowd. Savvy job hunters will be looking for markers which indicate which companies are putting their efforts behind creating workplaces where team members can grow together to build a work environment which values respect, dignity, diversity and inclusion.
I really enjoy working at Woodenbridge Hotel & Lodge, there is always a great atmosphere here with something different happening every day. I work with a great team on Reception and there is such a positive relationship with all the departments.” – Majella, Front Office Manager
