Ireland’s software luminaries were out in force last night (20 November) and, at a special event in Dublin, Tom Morrisroe, serial entrepreneur and investor, was named the Irish Software Association (ISA) Person of the Year.
IBEC loves its glitzy black-tie dinners and the annual ISA shindig was no exception, with WordPress founding developer and Automattic founder Matt Mullenweg present to offer sage advice. He spoke of how Irish SMEs can overcome early challenges to grow and scale internationally.
Employee recognition software creator Globoforce was named ISA Digital Technology Company of the Year for transforming how companies can acknowledge and recognise the work of their employees. The company has also established itself as a thought leader in employee recognition through their WorkHuman conference, which brought together prominent figures such as Arianna Huffington and Rob Lowe, to address how to create a better workplace, focused on the needs of employees. Globoforce’s platform is widely used by Fortune 500 companies across the world.
