Google – Creating a dynamic and great place to work

Creating a dynamic and great place to work is achieved through a broad range of initiatives – from employee engagement campaigns, to exceptional onsite facilities. Working with the icon and giant of Dynamic Workplaces – Google – means we understand the work involved in creating a ‘wow’ factor each and every day. We take the time to learn about, and understand each and every client, and ensure that what we offer – fits.

Dublin is Google’s EMEA Headquarters. Throughout their 12 buildings, we operate 4 restaurants, 5 satellite cafes, and 50 micro-kitchens serving over 8,000 meals per day onsite. Compass Group PLC is Google’s Global Food Partner.

Trend Matching

Compass Group created concepts and ways of working that have been adopted by the Google business globally. We developed a “Neighbourhood” approach to food where Googlers can avail of different food, different experiences and different themes throughout the Google Campus. We also appreciate the importance of incorporating behavioural science theories in all of our food service areas to encourage healthier choices.

Compass organise and manage 200+ individual events in Google per quarter, averaging 15’000 attendees per quarter. A dedicated team of event staff deliver events ranging in size from 20 to 360 Googlers. As a result – Compass has been recognised as the Partner of Choice for Google staff organising events.

Exceeding Expectations

This contract is by definition one of the largest food focused workplace dining experiences in Ireland. We serve high volume employee dining on a daily basis to a very discerning population. The expectations of new hires at Google are high, and food has become a conversation piece, a key retention tool, and a vital part of the work life in this dynamic company.
