On Thursday the 27th of June, at an awards ceremony in the Mansion House in Dublin, the Company was recognised as one of the 25 best companies to work for in Europe. Topaz which emerged in 21st position was the only Irish company to be recognised.
Paul Candon, Marketing and Corporate Services Director at Topaz said it was a marvellous achievement for a young Irish company to be recognised on the European stage for a second time.
“This is huge for us especially when you look at the quality of the companies we were up against in sectors like financial services, engineering, healthcare and IT consulting. The fact that we were the only fuels and convenience retailer on this European wide list is also hugely satisfying” Candon said.
“The key to our business is enhancing the customer experience and that is driven by the enthusiasm and professionalism of our most valuable resource, our employees. We would like to thank each and every one of our 1,600 employees for helping to make Topaz such a great place to work” Candon concluded.
Earlier this year Topaz was recognised as one of the Best Workplaces in Ireland for the sixth year in a row.
