Trigon Hotels Named 'Great Place To Work'

Trigon Hotels, which includes the Cork International Hotel and the Metropole Hotel, is 'proud' to be certified by ‘Great Place To Work’, which is accredited through confidential team member feedback.

This is the first time the hotel group has applied to gain accreditation as a Great Place To Work.

Trigon Hotels A 'Great Place To Work'

Over 7,000 organisations are surveyed each year by Great Place To Work, where companies who meet the threshold will then be in consideration for a range of recognition opportunities.

More than 140 team members from Trigon Hotels completed a Trust Index Employee Experience Survey that measures the extent to which team members consider their workplace as a ‘great place to work’.

Commenting on the accreditation, Trigon Hotels said the group is "committed to creating a positive work environment and great workplace culture for our team members.'


To be certified as a Great Place To Work is a reflection of how the hotel group values their team, while also increasing the appeal to work within the hospitality industry.

Work/Life Balance

The hotel group places emphasis on supporting their team members through their careers, and outside of the workplace in order to achieve a healthy work/life balance.

Part of the training and guidance they offer includes a series of annual talks in their DataBites sessions from inspirational and motivational speakers from all around the world, which is open to all team members.

This included Pendulum Summit speaker Marie Gleeson and two-time TED talk speaker, Deiric McCann.

Trigon Hotels also launched its new development programme which includes mentorship sessions with the executive team and supports learning and development at all levels through its ‘Aspire Program’.


Managing director of Trigon Hotels, Aaron Mansworth, said, "Our people are our greatest assets, our work is never done when it comes to creating a workplace that enables our people to do their best work in an environment that supports them. We are delighted in being recognised as a Great Place to Work, it required a lot of effort and collaboration from our team, the results from the survey have given us very clear direction on where we excel as employers and where we can improve going forward."

Kathleen Linehan, Trigon Hotels’ strategic director of HR said, "We are firm believers in annual employee surveys and have seen that follow up on surveys have made a very positive impact on engagement and business performance. Our people strategy links directly with our business strategy, the Great Place to Work survey has reinforced our place within the company and has provided key drivers for us going forward. I am delighted to celebrate this certification with them."
