“Our experience and knowledge positions us very well to listen and understand what our clients are saying, what their needs are and offer tangible solutions that make a real difference and add real value.”

The benefits of effective Human Resources can be felt right through any business. It is the stimulant that makes the difference to performance, to employee engagement, to the work environment and to how the business is viewed by its customers and its competitors. It is the most universal component across an organisation, in all industries and in all sectors, irrespective of size or business maturity.

We want to be part of making success happen for you, being your chosen partner to work with you to achieve all that HR can deliver. Be it a start up, a business expanding or a company fighting for survival, we believe we can truly make a difference.

Who We Are

Voltedge was created in March 2011 by Fredericka Sheppard and Joyce Rigby-Jones to develop an innovative HR consultancy, focused on providing customised and innovative solutions and support to clients across all sectors. Voltedge has grown rapidly and has a large client base across the private sector, and also works into the public sector. Our client base extends from very small (2+ employees) to much larger businesses, and we frequently provide project support into the HR departments and senior management/leadership teams of large organisations including re-organisation and people strategy projects.

We are very focused on helping entrepreneurs and start-up businesses, and have close links to many of the incubation centres such as Nova UCD, Synergy ITT Tallaght etc.. Our Outsourced HR Services are tailored to each individual client, taking into account their requirements, their culture and their business. We strive to work as a business partner to each client so that we add value and release them to focus on their core business.

Building a strong partnership with our clients is one of our core objectives in Voltedge. We will always give advice based on the needs of YOUR business, and where difficult situations arise, we aim to provide you with options that can result in real solutions but we will also fully outline risks and challenges that may exist with some of these options so that you can make informed decisions for your organisation. We see this as one of the major differences between a generic service provider and a true business partner such as Voltedge.

We have extensive knowledge of the HR and employment market in Ireland, and we enjoy a very strong relationship with clients across all sectors, particularly in the technology, software and media sectors, and also in the not-for-profit and membership sectors.

Voltedge is an approved Enterprise Ireland supplier of HR and OD Consultancy services and are certified Management Consultants with the IMCA. We also are very involved with the HR professional body, CIPD, the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and have been shortlisted for the HR Leadership and Management Awards 2015 and 2016 in the category “Innovation in Technology”. This year, 2017, we were shortlisted in three categories and Voltedge successfully took home the trophy for the Best SME HR Initiative.
