In 2016, its 25th anniversary, the Eurofirms Group closed the financial year with a total turnover of 294.7 million euros on the Iberian Peninsula and oversaw the opening of 14 new offices in Spain and Portugal.
An average of 15,000 people hired daily
2016 was once again a year of growth and expansion for the Eurofirms Group, which consolidated its position as the number one domestic human resource company and the fourth in the sector in Spain. Company CEO Miquel Jordà, in the closing ceremony held this weekend at the Girona Convention Centre, presented the figures for the turnover and the opening of new offices in Spain and Portugal supporting the company’s position as the leading Spanish firm in the human resource management sector in the country, and the fourth overall in terms of invoicing volume in the ranking of sectoral operators on the Iberian Peninsula when including companies with foreign capital.
In absolute figures, Eurofirms closed the year with a turnover of 294.7 million euros, a rise of 48% set against the previous year. This is a considerable increase if we also take into account the average growth in the sector, which stood at 15%. This general trend has held steady since the creation of Eurofirms, which has consolidated its position over recent years as one of the best-developed companies in the sector. According to Miquel Jordà, “factors such as the innovation, motivation and professionalism of the people at Eurofirms are the keys to explaining why this growth is so much higher than the competition’s”.
Increased personnel and growth of the regional offices
14 new regional offices were opened by Eurofirms last year. 10 in Spain (Barcelona Gran Vía, Terrassa, Sant Cugat, Montblanc, Valencia, Madrid-Pl. Castilla, Valdemoro, Palencia, Huelva and Playa Blanca on Lanzarote) and 4 more in Portugal (Central Lisbon, Mealhada, Leiria and Alverca).
The Eurofirms regional network now totals 87 offices, with 75 in Spain and 12 in Portugal.
Consequently, the greater activity and the opening of new offices have meant increased numbers of Eurofirms personnel. The 2016 financial year ended with 434 employees on the payroll, a 38% increase.
Founded in 1991 in Cassà de la Selva (Girona), Eurofirms provides temporary placement, personnel recruitment, training, outsourcing and Pivot services. It also has a Foundation that provides job insertion services for the physically and mentally disabled.
People first: the differential value
The CEO of Eurofirms, Miquel Jordà, points out that “since its creation, our company has placed people first, and then business. As opposed to management by objectives, we propose management through values; in this way, we get better results and our history proves that”.
Another of the company’s competitive edges is its ongoing innovation, as Eurofirms relies on “highly advanced technological tools that have been developed internally, allowing us to differentiate ourselves from the competition in order to manage human resource departments with added value and transparency”, declares Mr Jordà. These solutions include a management application (ERP), electronic signature, contract digitalisation, as well as exclusive online access areas for both clients and employees.
