Aura Holohan Group Once Again Certified as a Great Place to Work

Aura Holohan Group is once again delighted to announce that we have been certified as a Great Place to Work and one of the Best Workplaces in Ireland.

In 2013 we started a journey to transform our culture into something that engages, encourages and supports people to be their best. Throughout the years our teams have put in tremendous work to maintain and develop this workplace culture, that is now ingrained in the fabric of the business.

Here is how we strive to nurture our GPTW culture:

Our Values

Our people-centric culture is built around our 8 values, and these values are reflected through our policies, actions, and overall work culture, that promotes collaboration, inclusivity and commitment to ongoing learning and development.

Our Engagement Programmes

Our people engagement programmes set us apart from other operators in the fitness and leisure industry as it places our people firmly at the heart of what we do. We regularly seek feedback from our teams through these programmes and we have implemented a wide range of initiatives that help to motivate and engage our teams to deliver their best for the business.

Our Training and Development Programmes

The Aura Training Academy is Ireland’s leading training provider in the leisure industry, committed to providing the highest quality learning experience

Our Aspire Management and Development Programme, that supports and encourages our people to grow and develop, plays a key role in empowering everyone in the business.

Diversity and Inclusion

At Aura we value all our employees’ experience and diversity and inclusion is incorporated in all aspects of the employee journey. The “Investors in Diversity Certification” with the Irish Centre for Diversity is a testament to this.

Community Involvement

We have always had a community approach to everything we do. Serving the local communities in which our centres operate and building relationships with various charities, schools, community groups, special needs groups and sports groups to increase levels of participation in sport and fitness, is part of our core business and ethos.

Our Commitment to Success and Growth

At Aura, we are proud to have a team of passionate, professional and committed staff delivering on our company mission every day, to improve the health and wellbeing of our communities through exercise, sport and active lifestyles.

Attracting and retaining the best talent and being the employer of choice in the leisure and fitness industry is paramount for the success of our company and The Great Place to Work certification is a testimony that our people are at the heart of our business and that we have successfully translated our vision into reality.

In 2024, our aim is to continue the Best Places to Work journey, to improve the employee experience, build on our great work culture, and continue building a healthier, happier Ireland.
