This year, we mark the 10th anniversary of Catalyst Solutions.
10 years of amazing projects, amazing partners and amazing people.
For us, the first big moment was in 2006, the year we launched 4 of our major recruitment and employer branding instruments: Hipo.ro, Angajatori de TOP, Most desired employers and IT&C Career Guide.
Since then, we focus our energy on being the main partner for talent & employer branding solutions through our expertise and innovative instruments. During those years we shaped and designed 10 projects, with the desire to meet customers’ specific needs:
