Newsweaver: One of Ireland’s best employers
Leading innovator has global corporation giants as clients.
Cork, Ireland November 11, 2015
A pioneering Irish high-tech company with global blue-chip clients has been named one of the country’s best employers.
Newsweaver, the groundbreaking communications technology company with clients such as Rolls-Royce, Nike, Shell, Aon Hewitt, amongst many more FTSE 100 and Fortune 1000 companies, has been shortlisted in the ‘Best Export Employer’ category of the prestigious Irish Exporters Association awards. It is also in the running for the ‘Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Exporter of the Year’ award at the Convention Centre in Dublin this Friday (November 13). The Cork-based company with a global reach is the leading international innovator in corporate internal communications, having revolutionized email technologies over the past three years.
Ranked in the top 300 fastest-growing technology companies in Europe and the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 for five years in a row, Newsweaver was founded in Cork by Andrew O’Shaughnessy in 2002, when it had just six employees. It now employs 83 people, delivering cutting-edge communication solutions to major corporations in 96 countries, and it has significant expansion plans for next year. In addition to its Cork headquarters it also has offices in Boston.
International research has proven that effective employee communication is a leading indicator of financial performance and a driver of employee engagement. A Towers Watson Return On Investment (ROI) survey found companies that are highly effective communicators had 47% higher total returns to shareholders over the last five years compared with firms that are the least effective communicators.
Reacting to the awards recognition, Andrew O’Shaughnessy said that just like Newsweaver’s success to date, it was all about being able to successfully attract, train and retain highly skilled talent at a time when there was never more demand for such talent. “This is a testament to Newsweaver’s culture and values. We have an exciting ambition and we have worked hard to build a unique entrepreneurial and innovative culture, one we believe is hardworking, exciting and full of opportunity”, he said. “The values are a key part of supporting this. We live what we believe in and that’s at the core of our success.”
Through major investment in R&D and best-in-class staff recruitment, Newsweaver now delivers relevant, targeted, engaging and measurable communications solutions to some of the world’s largest and most successful corporations, and has earned Newsweaver a worldwide market leader reputation, working with companies with workforces in excess of 1,000. Earlier this year the company was named one of Ireland’s Great Places to Work in 2015.
