What makes us different?

6,000 different people - one common idea

Every day, 6,000 people come together at adesso. They develop software, deal with technologies, throw themselves into projects, consult companies. They inspire new employees for adesso. They make sure that invoices are written or keep our IT running. Completely different areas of responsibility, in which completely different people work. More about who these adessi are on these pages.

What they all have in common: they want to make adesso a "great place to be". A place where every person can contribute just as he or she is.

Gender diversity - we still have a way to go

A look at the facts confirms what the view into our corridors suggests: adesso is a male-dominated company. For the time being. Because with our initiatives such as She for IT, we are working to ensure that the figures develop in the right direction. We document our progress at regular intervals. We will continuously expand and update the figures on this page.

Share of female managers 14 %

Share of Women 24 %

Hei, olemme adesso – Hello, mi vagyunk adesso - Hello, we are adesso

According to the UN, there are 195 independent countries - and adessi come from over 80 of them. We are pleased that we can inspire people from all over the world for the company. Working across national borders, intercultural teams - all this is part of everyday life for us. Growth outside Germany ensures that we will become even more international in the future.


Whether Boomer or GenZ: We are the Generation IT

At adesso people are working who are at the very beginning of their career. And colleagues who bring decades of experience with them. Here there is no "You are too young for that" and no "You are too old for that". Here, the only question is: "Are you the right person for the job?"


Explanation of the age structure

The Boomer generation is the baby boomers after the Second World War. Today's 56- to 74-year-olds have the largest population of all generations. Nevertheless, there are hardly any clear study results on the attitude to life, values and ideals of the boomers. The study by the personnel service provider Robert Half characterises this generation as successful and liberal. According to the study, boomers also want to slow down. This is probably due to the fact that this generation is already on the threshold of retirement. The boomers have earned it - after all, they have largely made work the focus of their lives and coined the term "workaholic", among other things.

For the so-called Generation X, career advancement is the most important goal when looking for a job. At least that is the conclusion of a study by the personnel consultancy Robert Half. According to the survey, this generation of today's 40- to 55-year-olds is also characterised as ambitious, individualistic and ambitious. The members of Generation X are well educated and work in order to be able to afford a materially secure life. Unlike their predecessor generation, Generation X does not put work before other needs, but rather sees it as a means to an end.

Probably the most researched generation to date is that of the so-called Millennials. Generation Y, which is currently streaming onto the labour market and which makes very special demands on companies. Above all, work should make sense and offer variety. Generation Y places a lot of value on self-fulfilment, but is also a skilled team player who excels at networking not only offline but also in the virtual world.

The internet and dealing with it are part of everyday life for Generation Y, as they are the first digital natives, i.e. they were socialised by technological media in childhood. Millennials are masters of project work and often get involved in their own projects beyond the job. Work and private life are thus no longer strictly divided, but complement each other and increasingly merge. Nevertheless, Generation Y places a lot of value on free space for private life. According to the German Association for Personnel Management (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Personalführung e. V.), the concept of "work-life balance" is developing into the "work-life blend". Private matters should also be able to be dealt with during working hours, but at the same time people are also prepared to work in their free time if necessary.

Today's young people who will enter the labour market in the next few years belong to the so-called Generation Z. They are the generation that has grown up completely with digital technologies: Internet and smartphone are a natural part of their lives - at work and in their private lives. Unlike Generation Y, Generation Z differentiates more between work and private life. Firm boundaries and clear structures are once again desired. Taking the laptop home after work is not an option here. Self-realisation is no longer sought only in work, but above all in leisure time and social contacts. In these, there is no longer a demarcation between virtual and real, but the exchange with followers of the same media takes place without interruption. This is also reflected in the values of Generation Z: they have a great desire for free development, but are also aware of their uncertain future. They will not achieve the prosperity of their parents' generation, but they can develop unrestrained and in all directions. For many, this also leads to perplexity and trying out which paths might fit.

Because the generation is new and its intervention in the labour market is only beginning to be visible, no clear characteristics can yet be deduced.
