Göttingen - 8/19/16
IT service provider Sycor expects to exceed 600 employees in 2016
The Göttingen-based Sycor Group currently has 585 employees worldwide, with 440 of them in Göttingen. Further employee growth is planned. The IT service provider is boosting its presence in southern Germany with the opening of a new branch in Offenburg.
The full-range IT service provider Sycor continues to grow as it has over the last few years. "We had 550 employees at the start of 2016. Currently 585 people are working for us worldwide," says Martin Renker, Vice President HR Management for the Sycor Group. Thanks to capacity utilization in the business areas, the order situation, and the regular recruitment of new customers, the demand for new employees is steady. New positions are created almost weekly. Martin Renker adds: "We currently have around 30 vacant positions for IT professionals and career starters across all locations and the various business areas."
Renker clearly identifies the key challenges, not only for the HR Management department but for the entire company: "In order to sustain our ongoing growth, we have to continuously convince new employees of our value as an employer and our company culture, recruit them, and maintain their loyalty over the long term." He is confident that Sycor scores points with its credible employee orientation, values authentically put into practice in its day-to-day business, and naturally also with challenging tasks in customer projects. "We are currently negotiating with numerous highly qualified candidates. As a result, we are optimistic that we will exceed 600 employees before the end of the year."
