The Irish Stock Exchange (ISE) has been ranked as the 14th Best Workplace in Europe in the small to medium category by Great Place to Work (GPTW). Following this award, along with their win as the Best Medium Workplace in Ireland earlier this year, the ISE is now the highest ranking financial services workplace in Europe.

Deirdre Somers, ISE CEO, said: “We are thrilled again to receive recognition on a European level by GPTW. The ISE is fundamentally a people business and we are committed to maintaining and building on our high trust and high performance culture for our fantastic team who enable us to achieve our strategic goals.”
