GTECH Ireland Makes Best Workplace List

1 March 2005

WEST GREENWICH, Rhode Island – (PRESS RELEASE) -- GTECH Holdings Corporation (NYSE: GTK) today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, GTECH Ireland Operations Ltd., has been named one of the 50 Best Companies to Work for in Ireland by The Great Place to Work Institute of Ireland.

"We are extremely honored to be chosen as one of the best places to work in Ireland," said Jacinta Kielty, Account General Manager of GTECH Ireland. "In a great workplace, employees take pleasure in their work, and in the people they work with, in a deep and lasting way. We aim to provide a dynamic and innovative workplace for our employees and an environment that fosters dignity, pride, and satisfaction. Our place on this list is a clear indication from our employees that we are succeeding in our efforts."

The Best Companies study is a comprehensive annual survey that identifies and recognizes the finest employers and the most satisfied employees in Ireland and throughout the European Union (EU). More than 4,000 Irish organizations are eligible to participate, including private firms, the state sector, and non-profit organizations. Participation in the study involves a two-stage evaluation process using an employee survey and a questionnaire which looks at corporate culture. The survey consists of more than 50 statements that cover credibility, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie. This year, over 100 companies with more than 90,000 employees were evaluated. The most important factor in selecting companies for this list is what employees have to say about their workplaces.

"Your organization is one of a group of 50 who have demonstrated exceptional commitment to attitudes and policies that make your organization a great place to work. By promoting best practice in the workplace, you contribute to the development of national competitiveness and help to realize Ireland's broader economic and social objectives," said Mr. Michael Martin, TD, Minister for Enterprise, Trade, and Employment.

Other companies named to the list include McDonalds Restaurants of Ireland, GlaxoSmithKline Ireland Commercial, PepsiCo Ireland, Xerox Europe Limited, and Microsoft Ireland.
