“Many Irish companies are prioritising their employees’ happiness by providing catered meals, gym membership and team bonding events. Some companies have taken it a step further and introduced quirkier perks, like free beer fridges, on-site massages, music rooms, yoga classes, and a ‘dogs welcome’ policy. 

“This helps to grow a strong employer brand.”
