TEKenable downsize remote working - techbuzzireland

TEKenable, the digital services company is moving to a smaller office as a result of the success of remote working.  The company has doubled in the last five years and regularly surveys employees about the culture of the organisation and to ask them about their preferred working model.  TEKenable currently employs over 160 staff and the company continues to grow.

“Prior to the pandemic, 50% of our workforce was already remote across our offices in the UK, Ireland, Hungary, Spain, UAE and the Middle East so many of our teams were set up for the format and flexible schedules were the norm”, explains Nick Connors, Group CEO, TEKenable.  “When the pandemic hit, technology was not a problem and the transition for the entire company proved so seamless that we were ready to change course and gave our employees the choice of in-house or remote working.  Remote working won out and our teams are functioning more efficiently than ever before.  It has become increasingly clear that our employees are happiest and did their best work when they had the flexibility to determine where and when they work best.”

“The requirement for attending an office was constraining growth by requiring recruitment from a specific geographic area and with Dublin in particular which meant dealing with the lack of housing or extended commute times,” adds Peter Rose, Group CTO, TEKenable.  “The biggest advantage is access to talent in places where we do not have offices and the benefit that brings.”

In the recent Great Place to Work assessment, TEKenable was recognised as the 15th Best Medium Workplace in Ireland 2023.  This is TEKenable’s first year to be named as a top Irish workplace which is based on direct feedback from employees.

“We as a company really value diversity and a people-first culture,” concludes Nick. “Our values are a part of that foundation, and things like having trust in your employees and knowing that they will make decisions that are the best balance for their life and job maximising both is part of that.”

The new, smaller office will be used as ‘conversation space’ for meetings, collaboration and events.
