EOS Insights.

Annual Report of the EOS Group 2017/18

‘Challenge accepted’ is the theme running through this year’s annual report ‘Insights’. It reflects how we deal with change. It has now become a way of life, whether it involves new technologies, new communication channels or the way we work together. Very little stays the same. And the transformation is happening at warp speed. Both for us and for our clients. We react to this with creativity, a solution-oriented approach to our work and by being open to lifelong learning.

For every big story, our employees, clients and partners have identified their greatest challenge in the 2017/18 financial year and how they coped with it.

And by the way: If you want to know what my own personal challenge was, click here to find out. I can let you know in advance that I am still not done with this task. Quite the contrary: As a group we are still in the midst of the change and renewal process.

Keep questioning. We do too!

Yours Klaus Engberding, CEO of the EOS Group
