Dortmund | 10. January 2018
It was a very special moment for adesso when senior UX designer Michael Schiblon started his new position on 2 January 2018 – because Schiblon is adesso’s 3,000th employee. This figure symbolises the huge increase in the number of employees at the IT provider which is systematically implementing its ambitious growth plans.
Michael Schiblon has chosen a company that is on a clear growth trajectory. Now counting 3000 members of staff, adesso Group welcomed more than 700 full- and part-time employees on board in 2017 alone. adesso AG, the Group’s largest operating business unit, registered the highest growth rate in absolute terms. However, subsidiaries including adesso insurance solutions and ARITHNEA also saw a sharp rise in the number of employees, and the foreign subsidiary adesso Turkey even managed to double its headcount.
Schiblon’s new employer, adesso mobile solutions, also witnessed strong growth last year. The company specialises in creating mobile concepts and developing, designing and operating mobile solutions. As a senior UX designer, adesso’s 3,000th employee helps to ensure that the company’s solutions are user friendly. He is one of adesso Group’s numerous UX experts working on many projects on a company-wide basis to ensure that adesso’s solutions have a contemporary design and are intuitive to use.
adesso is also targeting a similar level of employee growth in 2018. Java developers, software architects and SAP experts are in particularly high demand for the Group as a whole. adesso mobile solutions specifically plans to hire experienced project managers, developers and concept designers. The initial phase has been highly promising so far. Schiblon was one of more than 80 employees to join the adesso Group at the beginning of January alone.
“We welcome Michael Schiblon, who represents all new adesso employees,” commented Kristina Gerwert, Head of Human Resources Management at adesso. “We have achieved another milestone in the expansion of our company by hiring our 3,000th employee. Given our ambitious growth plans, he most certainly won’t be the last.”
