On behalf of all the team working in the Sean Taaffe Group, we were delighted to receive this award for social responsibility. As a business we remain dedicated to our clients and serving our community.
Michael Berggren, Schwarzkopf General Manager for the UK and Ireland said,
Huge congratulations to Sean and all of the team at Sean Taaffe on their award for social responsibility; a hugely important award. The salon’s application was standout and showed a dedication to not just business, but to the community and a wider cause for which we congratulate them.
Over forty salons were finalists on the day and they really have reflected all that is great about the Irish hairdressing industry which has shown real resilience and innovation in the current economic climate. The professionalism that these salons have shown is a credit to the SME sector in Ireland and shows that strategic planning and a team focus in implementing the core business plan is the key to not just surviving, but excelling.
