Barcelona, January 25, 2017.- The Australian firm Polyglot Group, specialised in HR consultancy services, has moved to larger offices thanks to the growth it has undergone since moving to the Catalan capital in 2013. Today the company has a workforce of 12 professionals, and has gone from an office space of 88m2 to new offices with 210m2. In fact, in line with its present rate of growth, the company foresees the creation of 8 to 12 new jobs in 2017.
The search for the new offices was supported by the Catalan Government via Catalonia Trade & Investment.
Polyglot assists companies overcoming human resources and cross-cultural challenges during their internationalization providing solutions in different areas, such as recruitment, local employer branding, human resources consulting and outsourcing, payroll outsourcing, training, and language solutions (translation, interpreting and language coaching). Last year, Polyglot Group Barcelona worked with around one hundred clients from different sectors and backgrounds, including Inditex, Mapfre, Acciona or General Cable, as well as Catalan start-ups and small and medium-sized.
In the words of the managing director of Polygot’s Barcelona office, Jacques Reynaud, “our team is highly international and that’s why factors such as geographic location, Barcelona’s quality of life and Catalonia’s capacity to attract international talent gave us the perfect combination to be able to offer not only a great service to Europe, the Middle East and Africa, but also to connect our different offices in Asia, the Pacific region and America”.
The company, with its head-office in Sydney (Australia), was established in 1995 and currently has 74 employees around the world. In addition to Barcelona, the Australian company has offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Madrid, Paris, Cape Town and San Francisco, and soon plans to open new offices in Germany, the UK and the Netherlands.
