Back in 2004 when we first opened our veg shop in Greystones, we had no idea where The Happy Pear would take us. All we knew is that we wanted to make a positive change, even if just in our little community.
So every day we came, we served and we smiled. Slowly but surely after years and years of hard work the wheels started to turn. Today, we continue to grow, and along with our own efforts, we owe our success in no small part to our people, or Pears as we like to be known…
We can’t tell you what a typical Pear looks like because all of our Pear’s are individuals and bring a wide range of talents to our team. We value diversity and put people as a priority within the Happy Pear. Authenticity and Relationships are part of our core values and our people are at the heart of what we do.
Our desire to make the world a happier and healthier place and build community starts within ourselves. Connection at work and working as a team is of huge importance here and healthy living is at the core of who we are and what we do. Working here involves being part of a family and a community who build trust and are passionate about what we do.
Just don’t take our word for us however here is the view of some of our people about working at the Happy Pear.
Many of our Pears started their careers with us and have grown and developed with the business. In the Happy Pear we offer tools and resources to help you grow yourself such as;
- Comprehensive onboarding programme
- Classroom and Online learning to develop skills
- Ongoing coaching
We appreciate the talents that our team members bring with them and always seek the opportunity to help our people develop even further.
