Lennox, the 98-year old Irish scientific, industrial and laboratory solutions company, has been certified as a Great Place to Work after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work Institute Ireland. The Certification process is based on direct feedback from employees, provided as part of an extensive and anonymous survey about the workplace experience.
Founded in Dublin in 1923, Lennox employs 60 people across their sites in Dublin and Cork. The survey, completed in November 2020, analysed the Lennox team’s experience and provided key insights into the company’s culture. Among the results, the open, collaborative nature of the team was cited by employees as why Lennox is “a friendly happy place to work”. Employees also highlighted the overall sense of purpose as well as the support and training provided by management.
Commenting on the news, Lennox CEO, Leslie Brett said: “At Lennox, our greatest strength is our people and we are thrilled to be named as one of Ireland’s Great Places to Work. This independent assessment proved a valuable opportunity to take stock of the work done to date, celebrate our positive culture based on trust and teamwork, and continue that journey into 2021 and beyond.
“The true spirit of Lennox shone through in 2020, which brought with it challenges like no other. We would like to especially thank those who drove the GPTW submission internally and everyone in Lennox for their participation in the survey.”
