AOL Canada Ranked One of the Best Places to Work

AOL Canada is proud and honored to have been recognized as one of the Best Workplaces in Canada, ranking fourth on this year's list.

This list of "Best Workplaces in Canada" is compiled by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada. The competition process is based on two criteria: two-thirds of the total score comes from a survey completed by a random selection of employees, along with their open-ended comments about their organization; the remaining one-third of the score comes from an in-depth review of the organization's culture, including an evaluation of HR policies and procedures. This offers a rigorous representation of the organization from an employee perspective, and an overall portrait of the workplace culture.

This award just helps to validate our approach to the workspace. We are dedicated to encouraging a positive work environment with initiatives such as work benefits, health and fitness programs, charity work and educational opportunities. With a dedicated leadership team led by Graham Moysey, general manager of AOL Canada and SVP of AOL Global O&O, we embrace a transparent strategy that includes all employees as thought leaders and contributors.

We're especially excited to win this award in the midst of huge growth over the past three years, - we now have offices in Toronto, Montreal, Calgary and Vancouver.

AOL Ireland: Best Workplaces in Ireland 2013

Marie Goggins, Aengus McClean, Roslynn Williams and Curtis Brown accepting the Best Workplaces in Ireland award for AOL Ireland last night in Dublin

AOL Ireland has been named one of the Best Workplaces in Ireland, coming in fourth in the medium-sized category and is the top tech company on the list at the annual Great Place to Work Awards. This prestigious accolade was presented to the AOL Ireland team in Dublin's Burlington Hotel last night.

AOL CTO Curtis Brown attended the event, along with Aengus McClean, who heads the AOL Ireland team; Marie Goggins, who's responsible for HR across Europe for AOL, and Roslynn Williams, business adviser to the CTO and the Technologies organization.

There are two elements of the Best Workplace ranking: a culture audit and a trust audit in which employee perception of the quality of their workplace relationships is measured with a focus on trust, pride and camaraderie, considered key drivers of all high-performing workplaces.

Dublin AOLers were keen to get involved and share their views, with 92% of the site completing the Trust Audit.

Commenting on the wonderful achievement by 49 organizations, CEO of the Great Place to Work Institute John Ryan said competition for places on the list was at its highest in 10 years as more organizations had chosen to go through the assessment process, clearly appreciating the business benefits of having a high-performing workplace where employees are seen as having a critical impact. "This is a fantastic achievement particularly given the difficult economic backdrop, proving that if you invest time and effort in developing the right culture in your organization, your people will be your best asset and will be key to your business success."

AOL has had an office in Dublin for 16 years and employs more than 160 AOLers. It's located in Heuston South Quarter and focuses on developing global products for AOL Networks, AOL Services and the AOL Brand Group. To see what opportunities are available in Dublin, head to their career site.

Irish Eyes are Smiling

AOLers across the world are gearing up for the holidays this season, from themed parties and decorations, to fundraisers and company events. However, we'd have to rank the AOL Ireland team towards the top of the list for most festive.

Why? Think big. The team has completely transformed the side of Dublin's Boland's Mill building into a gigantic 3D winter wonderland. This stunt is part of a brand awareness campaign for the Dublin team, which is currently recruiting 35 software engineers to join AOL in the new year.

Using state-of-the-art 3D mapping and high-powered projectors, the former flour mill will be lit up for 12 days with stunning holiday animations, providing a festive spectacle for residents and visitors of Grand Canal. In addition to the visual promotion, the campaign has a heavy social media element displaying the hashtag #merryaol on the projected screen to capture the reactions of those passersby who are inspired to Tweet.

Want to learn more? Check out the video from the launch evening below and watch additional videos from the stunt over the next 12 days on AOL Ireland's Facebook page.
