14 September 2021

SD Worx, a leading European HR & payroll services provider, continues to grow and opens an office in Milan, Italy. This move strengthens the firm’s presence in Southern Europe, after announcing in early July that it will also provide payroll and HR services in Spain and Portugal.

SD Worx is expanding geographically at an accelerated pace after opening a Polish office at the beginning of 2021 and acquiring Aditro and launch! in Spring, including their locations across Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Norway and Sweden. By opening an office in Italy, SD Worx has now a direct presence in eighteen countries. Furthermore, SD Worx has relationships with regional partners to provide services in more than 150 countries worldwide.

"In the first instance, we will help our international customers that operate in Italy with Italian HR & payroll support and operations. In the second phase of our strategy, we will support Italian companies that want to grow their business internationally. Through our offices all over Europe, we can offer customers local expertise and help them grow on an international scale. We build a long-term sustainable relationship as strong partners with great respect for local business cultures, thanks to our multi-cultural and pan-European DNA. In a third phase, we will offer managed payroll services to local Italian companies. Our business strategy is based on three pillars: smart technology, efficient processes, and, above all, respect for employees and our customers who trust us" says Federico Fedele, the newly-appointed Managing Director for SD Worx Italy. 

"Our customers can expect us to take a personal approach that is close to them, their employees and their business. At the same time, we offer them the advantages of a solid European player with a complete HR offering, making us innovative and responsive to our customers’ needs. We see a lot of potential in the Italian market – we look forward to working with Italian companies and helping them with their international growth plans," says Kobe Verdonck, CEO of SD Worx.
