With more than 400 local, national and international clients, including the HSE, DAA, Taxback, RedC, Aer Lingus, and Coillte, Datagroup was initially set up in 2010 following a research programme into creating employment for individuals combating disability, social exclusion and marginalisation. At the core of this initiative was the concept of matching ability to task. This ensured that every member of staff, regardless of their physical ability or disability, could work together as equal members of a team. Collectively this team would focus on delivering a professional, cost-effective and quality-driven service to many of Ireland’s leading indigenous, multinational and State organisations.
