Cormac McGrane is the managing director of THG Ireland Limited, the Irish distributor of The McQuaig System™ and a number of other HR diagnostic and developmental tools. THG Ireland is the Irish representative of the UK based Holst Group and the Toronto, Canada based, McQuaig Institute of Executive Development.
This international network also extends to the USA, Australia and a growing number of non English speaking countries. These connections provide a great source of up-to-date learning on new developments within the field.
For the past 20 years he has worked with a large number of Irish businesses and organisations across the private, public and voluntary sectors. He is one of the country’s leading authorities on the application of Psychometric and Structured Assessment techniques in the workplace. Cormac’s primary area of expertise is in the recruitment and selection process, from the strategic to the practical.
In recent years he has begun to advise clients on a new approach to people selection and development, by developing methods of integrating the selection process into the staff development and performance management processes. This approach streamlines a number of core HR strategies and creates a more effective and focused management methodology.
Stress has always been a factor in management; however it has rarely been tackled as a management performance issue. Cormac’s experience in this area allows him to advise clients on effective stress and pressure management strategies. With stress and its often serious impact on workers at all levels becoming a financial and legal burden for organisations, the management of stress is finally being taken seriously by HR managers and senior executives.]]>
