Three Q Temp Satisfaction Survey Results – Happy Temps are Quality Temps

Happy Temps are Quality Temps

Temp Satisfaction Survey

We ran a Survey with our Temps to get feedback about their experience with Three Q TEMPS. We want to know what our Temps like about Three Q, what we can improve and if we’re doing a good job. Three Q TEMPS has always had Quality at its focus and one of the main ways we identify where we can improve is through receiving feedback and making innovations and adaptations. 20 years of which brought us to where we are today – Providing The Gold Standard in Temping.


With feedback being an essential part of company growth, we want to formally check in with our Temps and ask them how we can improve as well as let us know what we’re doing right. We put people first because people make the business. And without our Temps, the Gold Standard in Temping wouldn’t be possible.


We believe that happy Temps are hard working Temps. Being good to our Team is not just a nice thing to do, we think its important for our business.


In the Infographic below, you can see some of the findings from our Survey:

Three Q – We Care about Our Community (and What Our Community Cares about) – CSR

At Three Q, it’s fair to say you get the opportunity to support your community and the causes you care about.


I have worked for Three Q a little over a year as the Marketing Executive. I want to share with you some of the work I’ve personally been involved in supporting our core causes in our CSR strategy.  Three Q’s commitment to our community has lead to regular support for our core partners and annual projects in aid of and in support of causes that help our community.  I’ll briefly illustrate below the work I’ve done to help important charities and organisations all of which has been facilitated and lead by Three Q.

The Alzheimer Café

The Alzheimer Café is a monthly event in Donnybrook’s Avila Centre in which I’ve volunteered at several times in the past year and helped their team with marketing services to raise awareness for the cause. Its a social event where people can bring their friends and family to have a chat, a slice of cake and listen to their guest speakers who are always experts in the field of dementia. You can learn more here: Alzheimer Café, Donnybrook.


The Spare an Hour Campaign

We also run annual campaigns such as Spare an Hour. Every year, our office staff and temps democratically choose a cause they care about and the charity or cause with the most votes is chosen. Then we all can volunteer an hour (or more) to this cause. Three Q then matches this amount (last year Three Q donated double the raised amount). In 2018, we raised a new record – €5,6000 which went to Our Lady’s Hospice. This runs in September/October every year so we’re all very excited for our next Spare an Hour campaign. You can learn more about our 2018 campaign here – Spare an Hour Campaign 2018.  


Celebrate Nurses

And Celebrate Nurses which is a national positive recognition campaign for nurses that comes to a head in May on International Nurses Day.

It’s a great cause founded on the idea of giving the Irish public a channel to communicate and show their thanks and appreciation for nurses in Ireland. We show raise awareness for nurses in Ireland different ways every year and you can read about how we did it this year here: Celebrate Nurses – Thanking Ireland’s Nurses 


Caring about our Community and our Employees & Clients’ Causes

Three Q does a great job of instilling a feeling among the team that its important to make a difference in the areas you can make a difference in. Below are some of the pictures of my time supporting great causes with Three Q PERMS & TEMPS. I’ve really got satisfaction from my work with the company’s corporate social responsibility campaigns and partners.

Spare an Hour 2018 Three Q

Celebrate Nurses – Thanking Ireland’s Nurses


Three Q has officially Celebrated Nurses with our campaign since 2012. Our approach has changed over the years but the mission has always been the same:


To show nurses how much we, the Irish public appreciate them for the important work they do every day.


History of Celebrate Nurses

Over the years, we have done a ton of different things to give the Irish people the opportunity to express their thanks to nurses in Ireland. Here are some of those:


  • We ran social media campaigns making #celebratenurses trend on Twitter on International Nurses Day.


  • We collaborated with local schools to allow children to show their appreciation through artworks and paintings of nurses & hospitals.


  • We went out to the streets of Dublin City Centre to ask the public to show their appreciation. We received videos, voice messages, photos and written messages of personal thanks.



Street Thank You Collage Celebrate Nurses



Why Do We Do It?


A ‘Thank You’ goes a long way. Showing some appreciation can make your day and who is more worthy of appreciation than nurses?



“Being told you’re appreciated is one of the simplest and most uplifting things you can hear”



The people of Ireland, are really grateful for our nurses and we help them by providing a channel of communication to our country’s nurses. 


Celebrate Nurses 2019


Every year, we collect messages of thanks on our dedicated website –

This year we received 58 messages of appreciation for the important work nurses do everyday. We make short e-books out of the messages we receive and they’re available on the Celebrate Nurses website where anyone can download and read them.


We also integrated a campaign partnership with a number of hospitals this year by creating ‘Celebration Partners’.  Celebration Partners are hospitals that joined us in our campaign during International Nurses Week May 5th – 12th.  We sent out pink Celebrate Nurses balloons and stickers to support their celebrations. We also sent out Celebrate Nurses journals to be left on hospital desks for patients, nurses and other workers to jot down their messages of thanks.

We’d really appreciate it if you could celebrate nurses with us by leaving a message of thanks for nurses here at:

Three Q Temps are the Heroes of Our Spare An Hour Campaign

Our 6th annual Spare an Hour campaign was our best yet. We donated €5600 for Our Lady’s Hospice and we must thank every one of our temp workers for generously donating hours of their pay to the cause! Between our temps and internal staff, we raised an incredible €1800. In previous years, Three Q has matched this donation but in 2018, we pledged to donate double the figure raised by our internal staff and temps. This effectively meant that for every hour worth of wages our temps donated, it would be worth three hours. In fact, Three Q donated a little over double making it €5600.


Three Q Spare an Hour for Our Lady's Hospice


How the Recipient is Chosen

Every year the recipient of Three Q’s Spare an Hour Campaign is chosen democratically via a vote by our team. This year, Our Lady’s Hospice was selected while in previous years our team has voted in charities such as Aware, and Dublin Simon.


Temp Consultants

Temp consultants Costina and Charlotte were thrilled with the compassion and enthusiasm shown by our temp panel. They were excited to tell our team that 100% of our temps have opted in, that some temps were donating 2 hours, others were donating 4 and others donated even more! There’s a great energy in the office when we hear about how our temp workers have shown so much enthusiasm for the Spare an Hour campaign!

What Life Was Like In 1999

Ever wonder what life was like in 1999? Well here at Three Q Recruitment we are celebrating our 19th year in business. Being a recruitment company back in 1999 was completely different to the ways in which we recruit people today. Imagine having no Google to research companies, no mobile phones to test staff and fax was the only thing close to email! So much has changed in Three Q except for Quality. We still deliver a Quality Service just through different mediums. In celebration of our 19th birthday, we thought we decided to have our own reeling in the years and see 19 things that happened in 1999. Below is our countdown of the most memorable things to happen in 1999:

Three Q and Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility is something that we feel passionate about here at Three Q. You may often hear the term ‘Corporate Social Responsibility’ and not know exactly what it means.  There are many definitions of Corporate Social Responsibility and various terminologies are used, from ‘CSR’ to ‘Corporate Citizenship’, from ‘sustainability’ to ‘triple-bottom-line initiatives’.

Here at Three Q, we like go by the ideals of the European Commission who state  ‘the responsibility of enterprises for their impacts on society”. This is something that we very much believe in. At Three Q we want to give back to the community and do our part to enhance the society that we live in. To fully meet this responsibility, in addition to respect for applicable legislation and collective agreements between social partners, the European Commission suggests that enterprises “should have in place a process to integrate social, environmental, ethical, human rights and consumer concerns into their business operations and core strategy in close collaboration with their stakeholders, with the aim of maximising the creation of shared value for their owners/shareholders, other stakeholders and society at large, and identifying, preventing and mitigating their possible adverse impacts”.

corporate social responsibility with three q

We see Corporate Social Responsibility as a way for us to help those who could use our expertise in the recruitment industry. As part of our CSR policy, Three Q dedicate ourselves to truly help people to improve their professional opportunities through a number of free initiatives that we provide. We are passionate about people and believe that giving back to our local community is important.

Our CSR policy aims to help people under the Three Pillars that we have set out. These pillars are the Unemployed, Job Seekers and Organisations we work with. Under this policy we aim to promote employment, improve skills and support charities. We do this through promotion, fundraising and representation.

Three Q PERMS & TEMPS are passionate about people. Below we’ve listed some of the organisations and individuals that we’ve worked with as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility policy.  


JobCare is an organisation committed to working with people caught in the trap of unemployment. Jobcare’s purpose is to help people gain the skills, knowledge and confidence necessary to secure appropriate work. Three Q Perms & Temps have been in partnership since 2009 with JobCare. Our staff support candidates and unemployed people by giving time every month to perform mock interviews and follow ups.

Spare an Hour Campaign

Three Q Perms & Temps encourages staff involvements and allocates time spent on CSR activities within office hours. This is the office team handing over the cheque to Dublin Simon in December 2017 after our Spare an Hour fundraising campaign.

Industry Events

Three Q Perm and Temps supports Industry Events. For example, we attended the IHI Jobs which are specifically aimed at people on the live register and focused on the catering industry. Our management team and recruiters attend networking events such as NRF & JobCare.

Celebrate Nurses

In 2012, we successfully launched our Celebrate Nurses campaign in support of international nurses week, which has since turned into a nationwide campaign #celebratenurses. Read our eBook of appreciation from patients here :
