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.
