Horse Racing Ireland is conducting an industry-wide online survey to understand the recruitment and retention challenges facing employers in the Irish racing and breeding industry. A key output from the Industry Education and Training Survey, conducted by HRI in November 2019, was the challenge of staff shortages facing employers across the industry. As a result, Horse Racing Ireland (HRI) is conducting an online survey to understand fully the current recruitment and retention practices and related challenges facing employers in the horseracing and breeding industry.

    Ireland is recognised as a world leader in racing and breeding because of the people we have working in the industry. The results of the survey will be used by HRI to help inform future initiatives to help attract and retain the best staff and maintain our competitive advantage. We are working closely with our colleagues in the Irish Racehorse Trainers’ Association, Restricted Trainers Association, the Irish Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association and Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board to deliver this survey and we would ask everyone to take the time to complete this important survey. 

    All of the answers you give will remain completely confidential and anonymous. The survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete and all the information provided will be anonymous and treated in the strictest confidence. If you have any queries or need some assistance, please call Patrick Ryan on 085 710 6984 or email [email protected].
