  • Capgemini in Wroclaw is looking for new employees

In Poland Capgemini has nine branches in seven cities and 10.5 thousand employees who speak nearly 30 languages in their daily work with clients from all over the world. Since 1996, when the first Capgemini office was opened in Warsaw, the company has grown enough to become one of the largest investors in the modern business services sector in Poland.

How has the development of Capgemini evolved? The company presents detailed data in the "Impact Report" summarizing the last 25 years of Capgemini in Poland, created in collaboration with ABSL (Association of Business Service Leaders). Additionally, according to Capgemini representatives - the company plans further growth in the coming years.

- Capgemini has been operating in Poland since 1996, but our organization grew significantly in 2004, when we expanded simultaneously in several of the country's largest cities - Kraków, Katowice, Poznań, Warsaw and Wroclaw (classified by ABSL as tier 1 and tier 2 cities in terms of employment and sector maturity). Thus, as Capgemini we are among the pioneers who have built the foundation of the modern business services sector in Poland, paving the way for further investments - says Ewa Gołębiewska-Krzyżan, Chairman of the Board, Vice-President, HR Director Capgemini Polska.

Capgemini - work and employment

The employment in Capgemini centres from 2004 to 2021 has increased over thirty times. The company's representatives point out that the influence of the knowledge-based business services sector (KIBS) on the Polish labour market is, however, much greater than it would result from the employment analysis alone. One should also take into account jobs created as a result of Capgemini's business development in Poland also outside the organization itself (for instance, in offices where the company has its headquarters). Using the multiplier developed by EY (amounting to 1.8) the number of jobs generated by Capgemini centres in Poland may be estimated at 19.2 thousand.

Paweł Panczyj, Director of Strategy and Business Development at ABSL, underscores that Capgemini is an organization that over the last 25 years has become the largest employer in the BSS sector in Poland.

- The company fully uses the investment potential that our country has to offer. Among the employees hired in Poland there are many experts who play key roles in the company's global development. Their contribution to the reconstruction of HR and finance departments of organizations operating on a global scale is invaluable and proves that Poland, with its talent pool consisting of both senior-level experts and entry-level professionals, can compete with other locations in Europe. The role that Capgemini plays in the development of our labour market, sector and investment potential cannot be overestimated - says Paweł Panczyj, Director of Strategy and Business Development at ABSL.

Capgemini - modern business services sector

The ABSL modern business services sector study identifies 60 specific processes supported by centres in Poland. Capgemini is the leader in the country, supporting its clients in 51 out of 60 business processes. These include processes in finance and accounting, HR, IT and cloud services, customer service, project management, change management and analytics and data management.

In the employment structure in KIBS centres in Poland, according to the job categories, specialists dominate - for the market the average in employment is 53.5 percent. In the case of Capgemini, specialists fill the majority of the staff and their share in employment is 58 percent. The company also has a higher share of women in employment than the Polish average. The organization stands out from the sector in terms of the share of women in the management staff (first-line management - team leaders' level) - it is as high as 70%, while the average for the sector as a whole is 45.8%.

According to ABSL data, Capgemini also belongs to the group of 70% of centres, which constantly introduce innovative product or organizational changes, which proves high level of creativity.

Capgemini - consulting, information technology, outsourcing

In the coming years Capgemini plans to expand even further by providing clients with new solutions and specialisations. They have just opened a new business line Capgemini Engineering in Katowice. The current branches will also grow dynamically - together in Kraków and Katowice the company plans to hire 600 people over the next six months. The Poznań office, which celebrated its five-year anniversary this year, wants to double its headcount over the next five years. In turn, in Lublin, where 100 people are currently employed, it is planned to double the team in the coming months and eventually increase it to 400 experts. The company has similar plans for Warsaw, Wroclaw and Opole.

- The business services sector is growing dynamically and we are one of its leaders. We constantly analyse trends and market needs, setting new directions for action. It is also important to us that our clients recognise the high quality of our services in the area of business process management and technological solutions, and on the basis of trust built through effective cooperation, extend the scope of our joint activities to include other areas that require expertise and specialist knowledge. We are proud that over the last 25 years we have had the opportunity to become such a significant part of the Polish market - adds Ewa Gołębiewska-Krzyżan.
