A Win for Codema at the B&F ESG Awards!
24th April, 2023
We were thrilled to scoop top prize in the Employee Experience category at this year's ESG Business and Finance Awards, which were held on the 20th April in the Round Room of the Mansion House in Dublin.
We're delighted to receive this recognition for our flexible working arrangements, as we always like to stay one step ahead of the curve in facilitating an innovative work-life balance for our team.
In February 2022, we went one step further to improve our employees’ wellbeing by being one of just 12 companies in Ireland to participate in a global 4-day week (4DW) trial. Due to the many benefits this has had on our team over the last year, we have decided to stick with the 4DW indefinitely, with regular monitoring and evaluation.
Promoting and fostering a healthy work-life balance has always been at the heart of Codema’s core values and participating in the 4DW programme has not only been beneficial for our staff but also for our company. Giving staff more time to invest in personal interests, develop new hobbies and spend more time with their families have all helped to improve wellbeing and job satisfaction, which, in turn, has resulted in a more efficient and motivated team.
Commenting on our win, Codema's Executive Manager and HR Lead, Edel Giltenane, said:
We have been offering flexible/hybrid working for over 20 years, long before Covid came along and changed our way of working. Being an early adapter and a market leader has established Codema as a progressive, forward-thinking business that stands out from the rest. As a small, not-for-profit company that truly values its employees, we hope to inspire other organisations with our innovative working practices and we're delighted to see this acknowledged by winning this award.
