The Coberon Chronos Group has opened it’s third Polish office location in Poznan.
Poznań is one of the major trade centres in Poland. Many Western European companies have established their Polish headquarters in here. Most foreign investors are German (36 %) and Dutch companies (14 %). The best known examples of corporations who have their headquarters in Poznań and the surrounding areas are that of GlaxoSmithKline, Raben Group and Kuehne and Nagel.
Investors are mostly from the IT, food processing, furniture, automotive and transport and logistics industries. Foreign companies are primarily attracted by low labor costs and by the relatively good road and railway network, good vocational skills of workers and relatively liberal employment laws.
The recently built Stary Browar shopping centre contains many high-end shops and is considered one of the best in Europe. It has won an award for the best shopping centre in the world in the medium-sized commercial buildings category. Other notable shopping centres in the city include Galeria Malta, one of the largest in Central Europe, and the shops at the Hotel Bazar, a historical hotel and commercial centre in the Old Town.
Some of the best-known major corporations founded and still based in Poznań and the city’s metropolitan area include Allegro, Poland’s biggest online auction site, and Enea SA one of the country’s biggest energy firms. Kompania Piwowarska based in Poznań produces some of Poland’s best known beers, including the local Lech Brewery.
Coberon has opened here to increase it’s service offering in the recruitment, payroll and EOR sectors particularly in the IT and healthcare fields. For more information contact Simon Harding in the Chronos Group or check out our twitter @coberonchronos or facebook pages.
