What is a Great Workplace? The Employee View
Great workplaces are built through the day-to-day relationships that employees experience — not a checklist of programmes and benefits.The key factor in common in these relationships is TRUST. From the Employee’s perspective, a great workplace is one where they:
• TRUST the people they work for;
• Have PRIDE in what they do; and
• ENJOY the people they work with.
Trust is the defining principle of great workplaces — created through management’s credibility, the respect with which employees feel they are treated, and the extent to which employees expect to be treated fairly. The degree of pride and levels of authentic connection and camaraderie employees feel with one are additional essential components.
What is a Great Workplace? The Manager View: From the Manager’s perspective, a great workplace is one where they:
• ACHIEVE ORGANISATIONAL OBJECTIVES;
• With employees who GIVE THEIR PERSONAL BEST; and
• WORK TOGETHER AS A TEAM / FAMILY in an environment of TRUST
Account DirectorHaving been a previous client with FMI Fiona took the opportunity to join the FMI team in 2012 and hasn’t looked back since.
Fiona loves to bake and experiment with recipes and in particular tapas. She took up running and Spanish this year and while she is loving the running the Spanish isn’t going quite so well – too much giggling!!
Even though Fiona is a true Dub her favourite colour is red.
Training Services ManagerHaving joined FMI in 2008 as a Brand Sales Consultant, Iain gained valuable experience in the field and later up-skilled with the help of FMI to become FMI’s Training Services Manager with responsibility for the training of our field sales teams.
When not in work Iain’s true passion is for Motocross - a form of motorcycle racing held on enclosed off-road circuits and he travels the country to take part in events.
He is also a true carnivore – with no particular favourite with the exception of Calamari from “Las Tapas de Lola” on Wexford Street.
DirectorLibby started her career in FMI way back in 2003 as an Account Executive and has worked her way up to become a Board Director at FMI. She has seen three different FMI offices as the business has grown and needed more space.
Libby has worked across all aspects of our services and brings a huge amount of knowledge and experience to the FMI client servicing team. Her experience of running largescale sales merchandising field teams makes Libby an invaluable asset to her clients and colleagues alike.
Libby is our self confessed shopaholic and while her favourite colour is navy her wardrobe is more reflective of her personality colourful & fun.
Marketing ManagerWith a background in advertising and communication Ailish joined our team in 2013 and is responsible for marketing and communications.
With a love of tennis Ailish plays as much as she can and can be found playing league with her Mum or her knocking up with her 3 girls. Otherwise she is “Taxi Mum” extraordinaire.
She loves to travel and has already decided when she wins the lottery that she will retire to the South of France.
Account ManagerSabrina is a true "Corkonian" so no better place than the Cork office for her to be where she does a fantastic job managing the sales team in the South of Ireland.
When not working in the office Sabrina likes to unwind with kettlebells! Her secret pleasure is to bake and her speciality is Triple Chocolate Devil's Food Cake - a particular favourite with her five year old son.
Sabrina's top recommendation when looking for a night out in Cork is Electric on the South Mall.
