5 offices in six months? We did it!
Last year we hired our 1,000th employee and opened an office in Germany, and this year we have entered foreign markets even more intensively, including opening a competence center for a global leader in digital printing solutions. Meanwhile, we have expanded our corporate map with brand new offices in 5 more Polish cities. Bold plans for expansion into new regions of the country have become a reality, and this is certainly not the last word in marking our position on both the Polish and international IT market. Britenet, on the one hand, cares about its Polish roots by opening new locations in Poland, and on the other hand, consistently implements plans to internationalize the company.
As research shows, employees now prefer the hybrid work model, and there is a shift away from the stationary work that has been in place for years. This has been most influenced by the pandemic, and current labor market trends show this. Britenet's serviced offices are designed for employees who live in cities other than those where the company's large competence centers operate, as well as for those who occasionally want to work from other locations. We want to provide our employees with comfort at work, the opportunity to integrate and get to know their colleagues. So far, they have only been able to work remotely, so now we would like to give them a chance to take advantage of the hybrid work mode. - notes Wioletta Bykas-Darnowska, Head of Human Resources at Britenet.
This strategy is not only consistent with current trends in the labor market, but also with the preferences of employees - they want to be able to both work remotely and from an office. Britenet has employees from different parts of Poland, and there are more and more of them, so it was an obvious step for us to create such service offices. The cities we decided on are strategic locations - they open us up to new regions of the country and create further growth prospects. The serviced offices are just a seed for the creation of more and more branches in these parts of Poland, says Michal Borny CEO at Britenet.
In six months, Britenet reached 5 more cities ciach Poland. On April 26, it appeared in Katowice, in the Face2Face building on Zelazna 2, on May 13 it arrived in Gdansk, at 413 Grunwaldzka Avenue to Neon in Alchemy, and on May 25 it arrived in Lodz, at 24 Marszałka Józefa Piłsudskiego Avenue to the brand new React office building. On September 23, the company opened a branch in Wroclaw, at Sagittarius Business House at 2 Sucha Street, and on October 21, in Krakow, at 18 Pokoju Avenue in Fabryczna Office Park.
All branches are located in modern office buildings, in very attractive locations, and are equipped with the necessary equipment for work. Employees can use all on-site facilities - kitchens, conference rooms, chill rooms and attractions, such as ping-pong tables, billiards, foosball, game consoles.
We wanted theoffices we opened to meet the following criteria: they should have an excellent location, be located in modern spaces and be of the highest standard. - notes Monika Czerniejewska, Project Manager. We knew that these offices were being built for us, for Britenet employees - so we were looking for places where we ourselves would like to work. - she adds.
Following this key, Britenet employees in Lodz and Krakow have a Prosecco tap in the office, in Gdansk next to the office they will find, among other things, a climbing wall and a sauna. In Katowice, there's a kindergarten and a basketball court in the building, while next to the office in Wroclaw you'll find a train station and one of the city's largest shopping malls.
Britenetis constantly growing, and the figures speak for themselves. In one year, our workforce has grown from 700 to 1,000 people, and we are planning more hires all the time. The opening of new offices testifies to the consistent implementation of our plans for the company's development, including on enabling developers from other cities to work in the best conditions for them," says Michal Borny, CEO of Britenet.
The opening of Britenet's service offices, immediately following the opening of an office in Mönchengladbach, Germany, and Britenet's largest office to date, in Lublin, are among the company's most important achievements in this aspect over the past year.
Britenet has been in business since 2006 and currently employs more than 1,000 specialists. It implements domestic and international projects in dozens of technologies, including for such industries as finance and banking, insurance, telecommunications, automotive, FMCG, as well as the public sector. Britenet experts effectively guide their clients through the entire project process - from analysis, development, testing, implementation, to support and maintenance of systems. Projects are carried out in modern competence centers in Lublin, Warsaw, Kielce, Poznan and Bialystok, Gdansk, Lodz, Krakow, Katowice, Wroclaw and Mönchengladbach (Germany), as well as in the offices of Partners.
