Personnel costs in Germany are much cheaper than in Switzerland, but also office rents and accounting costs. Euverion’s new customer is taking advantage of these cost advantages and relocates administrative work, as well as the recruitment of German employees, to a new German GmbH.
Euverion’s customer, a Swiss company with sales in the double-digit millions, places personnel in companies in Switzerland. Its customers include both corporate groups and medium-sized companies. Employees are recruited in the fields of construction, gastronomy, healthcare and others. In addition, employees are also made available at short notice, so-called temporary employees (in Germany: temporary workers).
The administrative effort in the company is very costly. In the recruitment process, job offers have to be placed, applications evaluated, interviews conducted, dossiers prepared for customers, and much more. Payroll accounting, and in the temporary area the recording of activity records and project accounting, are also very extensive and cost-intensive.
Against this background, the Executive Board was convinced of the advantages of a German subsidiary: Recruiters and accounting specialists could be employed in Berlin for less than 3,000 euros per month gross, the office rent was less than 8 euros per square metre. Thanks to Euverion’s full service, the Executive Board’s time expenditure was also low – two flights to Berlin were sufficient to complete the establishment and operational launch. A further location advantage was the personnel cost subsidies, with which 35% of the gross salary is subsidized for two years from EU subsidy programmes – as a “gift”, i.e. non-repayable.
The company now plans to apply for funding to develop a very comprehensive cloud-based recruitment software solution.
