Changes to Switch Board / Telecom Services
The ESB Phonebook or Telephone Directory has provided a service to ESB staff for over 13 years.
From the 1st January 2018, this product will be out of vendor support and therefore will be discontinued at the end of 2017. It will be replaced by the People Directory, which is accessible on the Hub at the header toolbar.
You can quickly search for colleagues a number of ways through the People Directory – by name, work area, location, business unit, key words or division.
Find useful guides here on using the Hub menus and updating your contact details on the People Directory.

Christmas Greetings from ElectricAid / James Foley
ElectricAid wishes all of our members, friends and supporters a very Happy Christmas and a wonderful 2018. We thank each and every one of you who stood by the poor, who reached out to the less fortunate, and who made 2017 a great year for ElectricAid. In particular, we thank ESB and EirGrid, for their sustained support, and our pensioner members, for their exceptional generosity. During this Christmas season,
May you be blessed
With the spirit of the season,
which is peace,
The gladness of the season,
which is hope,
And the heart of the season,
which is love.
John Greenleaf Whittier
