Increases Space to Meet Growing Demand
KRAKOW, Poland, August 2, 2010 - Hewitt Associates, a global human resources consulting and
outsourcing company, has expanded its presence in Krakow, Poland by moving to
the new Diamante Plaza building. As an anchor tenant in the new development,
Hewitt has affirmed its commitment to operating in Krakow by increasing its
office space from 2000 sq m to 4700 sq m - equivalent to growing from 300 to
Hewitt has run operations in Krakow for its human resource
outsourcing business since September 2005, and was previously based at ul.
Armii Krajowej 16. Its second operational centre, which occupies one whole
floor of the Diamante Plaza building at ul. Dekerta 24, allows for
significant expansion in order to meet the ongoing success of its operations.
Hewitt will continue to work from both offices.
Eoin McCoy, centre director for Hewitt in Krakow said: "Hewitt
has enjoyed five successful years in Krakow and our expansion into Diamante
Plaza allows us to embark on another phase of growth as we more than double
our office space.
"We are in Krakow for good reasons; as an organisation our
world class client services need talented and numerate employees with
multiple language skills - and Krakow continues to offer that to us in a way
that few European cities can match. I am delighted that we have moved to this
prestigious development and I look forward to the expansion opportunities
that it affords us."
Jose Cordoba, Director General for Aldesa in Krakow said: "We
are delighted that Hewitt has chosen to cater for the growth in its
operations by moving to Diamante Plaza. Their new offices offer them an
up-to-date and flexible facility in an increasingly popular district. This is
well connected with the rest of the city by car or public transportation -
with a new tram line circulating in front of the building opening next autumn
- and will permit a continued access to Krakow's talented workforce. We are
sure that this will provide them with the space they need to handle their
