Matthew Dickason, CEO, Enterprise Solutions, shares his #HaysStory.

People are at the heart of everything we do. I joined Hays in 2005 and couldn’t have hoped to work for a better company. Two kids, three international moves, four jobs… my journey continues as many of my colleague’s roles do too.

Having studied Organisational Psychology and then Industrial Engineering, the customer-centric mentality of our business has been a great match for me. We are constantly trialing, learning and building on success, it is what enables us to continue to be a global business leader.

This ongoing development is with a focus on customer service and enabling lifelong partnerships with our clients that isn’t just about understanding and meeting their current needs.

It’s about challenging them.

Combining the scale of our knowledge and experience with deep understanding of the world of work to build a holistic talent strategy.


In partnership with our clients and colleagues, I’ve been fortunate to be a part of so many great projects over the years. Some stand out moments for me include transforming lives in a remote, rural part of China when we helped our client build a new plant and staff it with over 3,000 new employees, changing the supply and engagement structure of over 2,000 workers across America to enable a business change and implementing process and technology changes that saved an organisation millions - and ultimately helped to keep them in business.

These are fond memories that show the power of talented people in creating shared success.

And as we embark on the most exciting chapter so far, I am excited by the possibilities created by coming together as ‘one Hays’. I look forward to reflecting again in a few years and sharing more success stories that illustrate the richness of opportunity on offer as part of a career at Hays.


I am truly proud that what we do every day has a lasting impact, empowering individuals and organisations to succeed.

For me, the need to keep on learning, keep on challenging and keep on sharing is key to our success – we are committed to always ‘Working For Your Tomorrow’.
