A Milestone Achievement – 100 Employees!

McKeon Group is proud to announce that we have officially reached 100 employees, and what a brilliant team we have! We held an event to mark this special milestone and give our annual update to all of our team last week.

Throughout the last 72 years, we have grown from one man with a van to five brilliant divisions bursting with ideas, expertise, and world-class staff. We have worked on sites all across Ireland, from third-level education, commercial, pharmaceutical and countless other clients. Our ability to provide the right team across various sectors has grown and adapted, as have we, putting McKeon Group in a prime position to tackle some world-class projects.

Speaking at the event, CEO Tomas Mac Eoin said: “Refreshing our core values has been on the agenda for a while. We’ve changed a lot as an organisation over the past 10 years. The workforce has changed, society has changed, and our strategy has changed. I certainly felt the language needed updating and how we present and talk about them.”

“The Values originated from our grandfather, and some of them have remained unchanged, that of Integrity & Quality. We went to the Board of Directors for their input and integrity, how we treat our staff, and how we are perceived in the industry we found was paramount to them. Then we had an overwhelming sense of responsibility towards sustainability and that we must go above and beyond to change our environmental impact and influence others.

We then turned to the entire organisation to understand each individual’s values and if they aligned with our organisation’s core values. Really to ascertain if we held them true, communicated, lived by, and believed them. We asked the question ….”

What values or traits of your own do you feel are matched in your role at McKeon Group and Hereworks?

“The response was overwhelming, one of the most successful surveys we’ve carried out recently, which only goes to show how important values are to the team.

I was humbled by what came back, the positivity, warmth and passion in some of the replies….”

Updated Core Values:

We are proud to reveal our refreshed core values, illustrating the key points that encapsulate our organisation best.

They are Integrity, Client Commitment, Quality, Brilliance, and Sustainability. While to some, they may appear as buzzwords, to us, they are the very fibre of our operations and how we communicate ourselves to the world.

Going forward, we will have a renewed focus on sustainability and will bring in a consultant from outside the company to assist us with this. In the company-wide survey, a large number of our team called for an increased focus on sustainability, which we plan to deliver.

McKeon Group has grown drastically over the past three decades.

Our QEHS Director, Cliona Molloy, said: “I had a look back, and funnily every 10 years or so, we double our workforce, which has now brought about this major milestone.”

Our growth is only possible with everyone we deal with, including our clients, sub-contractors and our hard-working staff.

Let’s see what the next decade has in store!
