Our brand Deutsche Telekom IT Solutions Slovakia entered the life of Košice region in January 2006 under the name T-Systems Slovakia and has been inextricably linked with this region ever since. We proved this the very next year, when we became one of the founding members of Košice IT Valley association.
Over the last decade, we have managed to grow from scratch to being the second largest employer in the eastern part of the country. At the same time, with more than 3,900 employees, we are one of the top fifteen largest employers in Slovakia. Thanks to our highly qualified and motivated employees, we are the company with the fastest growth in added value within the IT industry in Slovakia. Our goal is to proactively find new ways to improve and continuously transform into the type of company providing innovative services.
To this end, our parent company Detusche Telekom AG decided to take strategic steps towards structural change, which resulted in the splitting of T-Systems Slovakia into two legal entities, operating, as of July 1, 2020, under one common brand, Deutsche Telekom IT Solutions Slovakia.
This process provided a unique chance to move the company under the brand of the global Deutsche Telekom AG group. A brand that is one of the most valuable in Europe, which is widely recognized and that opens up for us opportunities for global interaction and cooperation at the international level.
The biggest asset and competitive advantage of the company are our people - ambitious, dynamic, educated and reliable. Our employees are a key factor in economic growth and financial success. An attractive and extensive work-life balance portfolio guarantees lasting motivation for employees and thus a better quality of life, promotes physical and mental well-being and contributes to a positive work environment. All this with the aim of providing more freedom in reconciling work, career growth, private life and individual lifestyle.
It is important to us that we provide our employees with space for growth, constantly develop the quality and level of their professional skills and thus create conditions for continuous improvement of the quality of services provided to the company's customers.
As a company, we value every recognition of our commitment to continuous improvement in every area in which we operate. Over the years, we have received awards as The Best Employer in IT Technology, IT Company of the Year, or the Lecturer of the Year award in the Best Corporate Development Program category, or the Via Bona Award for Responsible Business and Corporate Philanthropy.
