Focus on Transportation: The Satisfaction of Keeping Those Wheels Running

If the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us anything, it is that some fundamentals in life are inevitable. fancy restaurants? Weekend on the Continent? game? All ultimately disposable.

Society cannot function without bus or train service. Nurses, doctors, grocery store assistants and other essential workers still need transportation options in times of crisis.

Last year’s Best Employers survey, published when the most restrictive effects of the pandemic were still a reality, placed state-owned transport operators Irish Rail and Dublin Bus in second and third place overall, beaten only by Google. Both companies are ranked fifth and 12th respectively this year and are ranked 64th by sister firm Bus ireann.

The three companies, with about 10,000 employees between them, have made great strides when it comes to the relationship between employees, management and trade unions. After a period when transport strikes always seemed a real threat, the tone of industrial relations at former CIE companies sounds less like trench warfare.

Dublin Bus has worked particularly hard to champion diversity, making it more reflective of the community it serves.

There is also a growing sense of purpose within public transport in relation to climate change. The new low-emission buses are a clear sign that real reactions, at a much slower pace, are finally happening. Slow progress around the electrification of the commuter rail network is also expected to appear on the ground soon. The low fares in recent weeks are also a very clear sign that some politicians are finally taking public transport seriously.

A sense of optimism undoubtedly helps explain the higher job satisfaction. And it is not only the state transport companies that have benefited from this new objective.

View a post. It has dropped to number 24 on the list, down from number eight in 2021. This is a company that has done a hugely successful job of reinventing itself under CEO David McRedmond.

What felt like a company in a state of long managed decline ever since email began killing the letter has become a vital part of the new world of online shopping. The postman has become the main point of contact with the outside world for many people in recent times. One Post has also shown its caring side with its free Address Point service, which provides a fixed address to those without a fixed home.

The good vibes about logistics extend to the private sector as well. DPD, FedEx and DHL also scored strongly in this survey. Their visibility around Ireland’s housing estates and rural streets has never been higher.

All this optimism and a sense of real purpose within the transportation and logistics sector has very real implications for the companies themselves. In times of severe staff shortages in many sectors, being able to offer a work environment that one can feel good about is an invaluable way to attract good people.
