Mater Private Network has become the first hospital in Ireland to achieve ‘Top Employer’ certification

Location: All

Mater Private Network is delighted to announce it has been certified as a ‘Top Employer’ by the prestigious Top Employers Institute. Being certified as a Top Employer showcases an organisation’s dedication to a better world of work and how the organisation exhibits this through excellent human resource policies and people practices. 

The Institute has certified over 2,300 organisations in 121 countries, including global companies like Takeda, DHL, Pepsico, GlaxoSmithKline, Ford, Coca Cola and more. 

Top Employer audited our HR & TA strategy, systems, processes, impacts and employee engagement with considerable rigour, always using “best in class” as the benchmark standard. So, receiving this accreditation is a huge achievement for Mater Private Network. 

We are the first hospital/healthcare organisation in Ireland to have achieved this distinction. Reaching this accreditation also marks another milestone in the organisation’s journey to become the very best hospital to work at in Ireland. 


Garry McCabe, Chief People Officer at Mater Private Network, said: “This accreditation against the Top Employers Institute’s world class benchmark for human resources practices certainly validates our work in building the correct service platforms to enable an excellent HR service to the organisation over the last two years. Being a ‘Top Employer’ will further enhance the attraction toward Mater Private Network of the very best talent in global healthcare to join the already stellar line up of individuals and teams we already have at Mater Private Network. And finally, I’m also comforted to know that I’m surrounded by a great human resources team who will continue to grow, develop and add huge value to Mater Private Network into the future”.

Top Employers Institute CEO David Plink says: “Exceptional times bring out the best in people and organisations. And we have witnessed this in our Top Employers Certification Programme this year: exceptional performance from the certified Top Employers 2024. These employers have always shown that they care for the development and wellbeing of their people. By doing so, they collectively enrich the world of work. We are proud to announce and celebrate this year’s group of leading people-oriented employers: the Top Employers 2024.”
