Flowers for the office – and don’t forget to vote!

Thank you so much for the lovely flowers Danielle!

Danielle dropped these flowers into us to say thank you for the “Spare an Hour” campaign that we organised recently to support little Angel who has been very poorly recently. How lovely of her to think of us. We have decided that Therese in payroll should be allowed to keep the flowers since she contributed so much time and effort to the campaign. Here she is delighted with them 🙂 JCI Ireland also think a lot of us for the campaigns that we have run during the year, and have nominated us for a community award.

Star Recruiters Attend National Recruitment Federation Event for CPD

In our effort to ensure our staff progress with CPD (continued professional development) Three Q’s star recruiters Mahy, James, Conor and Kenny were delighted to attend a talk hosted by the National Recruitment Federation recently, at the offices of Contracting Plus in Dublin.

National Recruitment Federation Event for CPD

The informative and motivating talk was given by Grainne Martin, who is a trainer, coach and advisor to the recruitment industry and has been in the industry for more than 20 years. In her talk this morning she expanded upon such interesting topics as; recruiting styles, how to be approachable and maintain a relationship with candidates, how to take a structures approach to recruitment and how to make the best use of time.

Our recruiters were excited by how much they learned at the talk, aptly named “How To Be a Super Star Biller”, and are all very much looking forward to attending the next event hosted by the National Recruitment Federation.

Chambers Ireland shortlist for Corporate Social Responsibility Awards 2016

Three Q were in great company having made the Chambers Ireland shortlist for Corporate Social Responsiblity Awards 2016. Three Q PERMS & TEMPS were delighted to be shortlisted to win an award for their provision of schemes and funding which help the community in and around Dublin. “The Business of CSR in our Business” provides the framework for all of the company’s aid projects under its three pillars: unemployed, in-demand jobseekers and hiring charities.

Managing Director Cora Barnes and Operations Manager Suzanne Finn were delighted to be flanked by the likes of ESB for their Apprenticeship Programme and Zurich Healthcare, who address youth unemployment with their Activation Programme.

Diageo Ireland were the ultimate winners of the night and according to Cora who took pride of place beside their team at the event, very worthy ones at that. Their Learning for Life Programme has provided 175 young people with the skills, training and experience needed to take up jobs in the hospitality industry, to which Diageo are inextricably linked.

The hospitality industry is faced with major shortages in Ireland today, as Three Q knows all too well. As a company we supply specialist and up-to-date support and training to our staff, in order to provide them,  and the clients they work for with the best experience possible.

Three Q believes that business’ should never lose its human element, and that supporting charities such as The Alzheimer’s Cafe, Temple St Hospital and AWARE are of crucial importance.

“When you have a loud voice, a corporate voice, you’ve got a responsibility to make sure the messages you are sending are positive- empathetic.” Three Q staff member Kim Carroll stated. “You have a duty to help those less fortunate than you.”

Temp Services Manager Charlotte Crowe was involved 2 weeks ago in a charity collection inside the organisation. “Every year ThreeQ Temp and office staff pull together and donate one hour wage to a chosen charity. This year there was a bit of a twist as I asked the team could we do the one hour wage donation for one of our long term staff who’s baby was recently diagnosed with Leukaemia. I was blown away by the generosity of the whole team – some people donated as much as 4 hours pay.”

Three Q PERMS & TEMPS would like to thank all of their staff and friends for the support and good wishes that they received having been both shortlisted for the Chambers Ireland Award, and winners of the JCI Friendly Business Awards 2016.

We hope to have another fantastic year of helping the community ahead of us.
