The Aura Holohan Group is proud to announce that we have, once again, officially been certified as a Great Place to Work 2022-23, after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work® Institute Ireland. The accreditation process is based on direct feedback from employees, provided as part of an extensive and anonymous survey about the workplace experience.

Our people engagement programmes set us apart in the sports 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. Achieving this independent certification from Great Place to Work® Institute Ireland demonstrates to us that our people endorse and support our culture, values and mission.
