Topaz scores top ten in Europe

Ireland’s largest fuel and convenience retailer, Topaz, has been recognised as one of the Best Large Workplaces in Europe for the fourth time.

The company joined the prestigious top-ten of the Best Large Workplaces in Europe during a black tie event attended by over 400 people in the RDS in Dublin.

It’s the first time Topaz, acquired by the Couche-Tarde Group late last year, made it into the top ten, coming ninth overall.

The company is one of only three Irish companies to be recognised in the Large Workplace category.

In February the company was recognised as one of the Best Workplaces in Ireland for the 11th time and presented with a Laureate in recognition of ten years consistent ranking in Ireland’s annual Best Workplaces list.

Ruth Mellett director of human resources at Topaz said it was a fantastic achievement.

“Achieving a top ten position is huge for us especially following on from the award in February,” she said.

“This is a very exciting time for the company, following on from our acquisition of Esso’s Irish business and then becoming part of the Couche-Tard family. Our aim at all times is to enhance the customer experience and our success in that regard is due to the professionalism and dedication of our employees. We would like to thank each and every one of them – all 2,000 – for helping to make Topaz such a great place to work.”

Best Workplaces sets out to recognise the finest employers and therefore the most satisfied workforces in Europe. It is the largest employment survey of its type.
