Dell EMC Ireland has received two Invest in Ireland Awards. The awards, which were organised by IDA Ireland, were focused on rewarding excellence in the inward foreign direct investment sector in the Republic of Ireland. 2018 was the inaugural year of the awards with winners recognised across 10 different categories. Dell EMC were named winners of two categories.
The company won the Invest in Ireland Award Organisational Transformation Award for the successful reorientation of the Dell EMC Limerick campus and functions in recent years. A new vision for the campus was forged to reflect the future needs of customers who increasingly sought to harness new technologies in efforts to accelerate digital transformation.
IDA Ireland also presented the company with the Invest in Ireland Award for Diversity in light of Dell EMC’s commitment to creating a culture of diversity and belonging. The judging panel considered that the company had fostered a diverse and inclusive workplace, where people of all backgrounds are supported to do their best work and are celebrated for their achievements.
Speaking following the award ceremony, Denis Lucey, Vice-President of Commercial Support Services EMEA and Site Leader, Dell EMC Cherrywood, said: “This is a fantastic achievement by all our teams at Dell EMC Ireland who have worked tirelessly to create an innovative and welcoming workplace where everyone can bring their best self to work. Through their active engagement in D&I programmes and communities, our team members across Ireland have been effective change agents and the embodiment of the inclusive culture we have developed. This has helped to unleash innovation that is transforming the future for businesses and organisations not only here in Ireland, but in Europe and across the globe.
“The two Invest in Ireland Awards come in the wake of a very successful year for Dell EMC in Ireland having earlier this year been named by Indeed as the Best Place to Work. With the growing capabilities and confidence of our team members in Dublin, Cork and Limerick, I’m excited to see how the team can work even better together to drive change for our customers through greater access to better technology.”
