As posted by Tipperary Libraries blog here and on twitter myself and another Dell Employee, Ger Carey are donating our time to help people get an introduction to computers.

After I completed 6 weeks of similar sessions at Watch House Cross Community Library in Limerick I thought that giving this type of introduction to computers in Nenagh would benefit people in the North Tipperary town.

Being able to help people get to grips with computers, helping them understand the do’s and don’t of the internet has proven very benefitical for these individuals. Some, before attending, were not able to use a mouse confidently and by the end of the 4th week are able to navigate the internet and find what they want. I have 2 more weeks to complete and I think that with more help from others we may beable to extend this help. Time will tell.

With demand high for this type of introduction to computers in Nenagh and in these difficult financial times, it’s important to try and give back something to the community of value, it gives me personal satisfaction and generally helps people get what they want to get out of it.

Dell’s Make a Difference Employee involvement programme sees a large number of the 100,000+ Dell employees donating their time to great events globally.

Dell Limerick still employ over 1000 people, even with the relocation of it’s manufacturing facilities to Poland and continues to see growth in it’s employee numbers and it’s business globally.
