Wyser’s mother company, Gi Group, one of the world’s leading companies in the staffing industry, closed 2015 with excellent results. Thanks to a network of 500 branches and around 2,400 employees, the Group generated total revenues of €1.6 billion, an increase of 18.2% compared to 2014. The EBITDA of the Group increased significantly to €43 million in 2015, up 19.4% compared to 2014.
“We are very pleased with the results of 2015” – said Stefano Colli-Lanzi, founder and CEO of Gi Group. “2015 was a year in which Gi Group started to capitalize on the investments made over the past years in people, processes, and technology.”
“An important fact is the breakdown of revenues by geography. In the past the majority of revenues came out of Italy, where the Group was founded. We are now moving closer to a 50 and 50 split, indicating that the international path is effective.”
Broken down by country, 52.7% of the revenue of Gi Group has been generated by Italy, 23.7% from Great Britain and 7% from China. The total revenue of countries outside Italy was €748 million, (47.3% in 2015 compared to 46.9% in 2014).
“Our financial results positions Gi Group in the top six of staffing companies in Europe and in the top 18 worldwide. In 2016 we want to continue this growth trend, both organically and through targeted acquisitions which will enable us to strengthen and complete our value proposition globally. Our goal for the coming years is to become a truly global company offering the full range of HR services.”
