Radosław Krasowski (HR Manager Geoban S.A.)
Geoban Co. has been present on Pomeranian market since 2008. Initially, we employed only 40 people, but just after two months we had 150 employees working in 11 teams of banking services. Currently Geoban SA is located in the well-connected and modern office buildings of Luzycka Office Park in Gdynia and employs 500 people.
What determined the location of the branch in Pomerania was primarily the availability of young, educated, fluent in foreign languages people who are familiar with computer applications. Another attractive thing from the employer’s perspective is the possibility of cooperation with the Poviat Labour Office in Gdynia in the internship program for graduates of high schools and universities. All of that makes Pomerania a very good location for our business.
