What employees say

"What I most like about working at Global Shares is the diversity, empowerment, and entrepreneurship, which are the pillars of our culture. There's a ‘Clonakilty taking on the world’ mindset:  If you challenge yourself and think big enough, anything's possible.

I've been with the company since 2014. We were a small team back then with big ambitions and we were about to launch our new global software platform onto the market. It's been an amazing experience to watch the company evolve and grow into a truly global leader.  

We are continuing to grow at rapid pace. Everybody who works here has an important role to play and can make a difference. It's exciting to be part of!"

Word from the top

I'm extremely proud that we have received Great Place to Work certification, and that we've scored higher than our best medium-sized comparators. This is testament to our team and our continuous investment in our people, who are key enablers of our organisational strategy.

As part of the certification process, we spent a lot of time really examining ourselves as a company. We carried out workshops with staff from diverse departments, offices, and backgrounds to re-establish our core values, we did employee engagement surveys to find out what changes were important to people to shape our future HR policies, we established ‘Global Cares’ - our jam-packed wellbeing programme & launched a new eLearning platform. What emerged from our journey to accreditation is that people are at the heart of who we are and what we do.

We know that challenges remain ahead of us, but we've got an exciting five-year HR plan and we'll continue to improve and mature as an accredited Great Place to Work.
