Kilkenny company wins two top industry awards
An innovative Kilkenny company has scooped two awards at a prestigious ceremony in Dublin.
CluneTech (formerly Taxback Group) won the accolades at the recent HR Leadership & Management Awards held in Clontarf, Dublin.
CluneTech was shortlisted in a record seven categories this year and took away two awards during the ceremony, which was held in a hybrid format this year.
Michelle Gaffney, HR Business Partner at CluneTech, won HR Manager of the Year. Michelle said: “I am absolutely honoured to be recognised as HR Manager of the Year. As cliché as it sounds, this is something I never would have dreamt of when I started my HR Career with Taxback. I have essentially ‘grown up’ within this organization and Terry and the SMT have continued to believe in me every step of the way. I’m especially grateful for their support and the abundance of opportunities they have given me over the years.”
CluneTech were also awarded Best Use of CSR in HR. Commenting on the award, Rachael O’Shea, Head of Employee Experience at CluneTech said: “We’re over the moon to have won Best Use of CSR in HR. This award is a huge team effort and is a reflection of our global team’s tremendous enthusiasm and passion for supporting the communities around them.”
Founder and CEO of CluneTech Terry Clune added: “We’re absolutely delighted to have won two awards at the HR Leadership and Management Awards. This result is testament to our fantastic HR Team, in particular Michelle Gaffney who was awarded HR Manager of the Year. Despite all of the challenges that Covid has presented, our team have continued to go above and beyond, and I’m immensely proud of the work that they have done, and will continue to do.”
