Friday, 06 October, 2023. Kilkenny-headquartered software technology group, CluneTech, has been recognised at the 2023 HR Leadership & Management Awards at a Gala Awards ceremony held in the Crowne Plaza, Dublin.
Now in its ninth year, the HR Leadership & Management Awards celebrate excellence in HR and recognise that it will be key to the future economic prosperity of the Irish economy. The Awards are vital to promote HR, as they allow innovation and achievement to shine, and the ceremony itself is attended by hundreds of leading industry figures.
This is CluneTech’s fourth year participating in these awards, having originally been recognised in 2019. CluneTech was awarded Overall Excellence in HR, which recognises exceptional achievement in HR and is the highest accolade on the night.
Last night’s success also marks the company’s third time winning Best Use of CSR in HR. This award recognises the role that their CSR programme, CluneTech Cares, plays in the company’s overall business strategy and #OneTeam culture.
CluneTech were also awarded Best Flexible Working Strategy, an award that recognises their innovative approach to flexibility. In the last year, CluneTech further strengthened its commitment to work-life balance by increasing annual leave allowance and introducing flexible benefits including Life Work Days, an additional half day's leave per quarter where employees can get their life jobs done, Summer Flex Hours, Meeting Free Days and more.
Welcoming the awards, Terry Clune, CluneTech CEO and founder said: “We are absolutely delighted to have won three awards at the HR Leadership and Management Awards. On behalf of myself and CluneTech’s leadership team, we’d like to express our gratitude to our HR Team who go above and beyond, consistently listening to our people in order to deliver the best possible employee experience. This recognition is testament to the incredible work that they do which wouldn’t be possible without the support and collaboration from our employees, all of whom play a fundamental role in making CluneTech a great place to work.”
Rachael Quinlan, Head of Employee Experience, CluneTech said: “We are truly over the moon with our recognition at this year’s awards and are especially proud to have won Overall Excellence in HR. This recognition is a huge team effort and represents years of hard work to get us to where we are today. At CluneTech, our people are the driving force behind our #OneTeam culture and it’s their feedback and participation that has directly shaped both our Flexible Working Strategy and CSR Programme. We are incredibly grateful to them, and to our leadership team, both of whom consistently collaborate with us so that we can deliver a best-in-class EX, while simultaneously fuelling growth and innovation right across our suite of global businesses.”
