Hickey’s Pharmacies was founded in 1995, when the Group’s Managing Director, Paddy Hickey, opened his first store in Northside Shopping Centre. Since then, the Hickey’s Pharmacies Group has grown, and has expanded its range of services in response to changing needs. Today, the Group currently employs over 300 people in 28 outlets throughout Ireland. They have seventeen pharmacies serving the greater Dublin area, four in Meath, three in Louth, two in Kildare, and one each in Cork and Wexford.
Over the coming years, they plan to further extend their branch network, by opening new outlets across the country. For this reason they required support in the areas of Learning & Development. In 2015 they upgraded their internal systems and realised the need to address their skills gaps, develop staff and aid succession planning through the management of their corporate talent pool. Hickey’s Pharmacy went to the market to source a partner that they could work with to implement their talent management strategy.
They partnered with Enovation Solutions – Ireland’s Official Totara LMS Partner – for a full solution to their challenge and are now managing their staff’s competency and performance with Totara LMS – A Business focussed distribution of Moodle. Enovation Solutions is a provider of learning, compliance, talent and document management solutions with specific expertise in utilising proven, integrated open source solutions to meet the diverse needs of our international client base. Welcome Hickeys Pharmacies, we wish you every success in the future and look forward to a prosperous partnership!
