Gi Group, the largest Italian-owned staffing agency, continues its international growth and enters the countries of Eastern Europe. Through diverse purchase operations, Gi Group enters Bulgaria (temporary employment), Serbia (HR services) and with a direct presence in Russia, Lithuania, Croatia and Montenegro.
Thanks to the help of the aforementioned countries and through partnership agreements, the Group, headed by Stefano Colli-Lanzi, will also operate in Bosnia, Moldavia, Slovenia, Estonia, Latvia, Macedonia, Albania, Ukraine and Armenia.
Stefano Colli-Lanzi commented "After the acquisition of right4staff taking place in March, this operation allows us to cover the area of the Balkans and Eastern Europe and to take another step forward to complete the internationalisation process we began in 2007 with our first acquisition in Germany. We are increasingly a global entity able to meet the diverse needs of multinationals, and we contribute, through the know-how gained in Italy and in the various countries where we are present, in developing the local labour market."
The Group has earned a stable position in the Top 20 multinational HR worldwide and among the top eight European companies.
"Regarding 2010" continues Colli-Lanzi "worldwide, we are recording an extremely positive growth trend, topping 30%. Thanks to this growth and to our latest acquisitions, we expect to easily surpass our target of 1.2 billion Euros by the end of the year."
"This fall, we plan a worldwide launch of Site Managed Services, while in Italy we will continue with our youth initiatives and experiments with h24 affiliates for clients requiring non-stop services."
In May, Antonio Bonardo, Group Public Affairs Director, was elected as a member of the Board of CIETT, the International Confederation of Employment, which Gi Group entered at the end of 2010 as a Multiregional Corporate Member.
