We at Ropardo totally agree with Simon Sinek saying that “people are always more important than numbers. Happy people make happy numbers… which make even more people happy.” With their effort, commitment and talent, happy people at ROPARDO contributed to the 24% turnover growth while the team added 20% more ‘happy people’ and expect to say the same next year. Then again are the happy customers for whom we delivered value.

People come first. ROPARDO Academy Program marked five years of existence in 2015 with 90% of this year pool of students continuing their career in the company after graduating the program with success. Their Project One was the particular result of their junior work within this year program, with significant chances to be implemented as HR application. Summer practice is another of our good habits in the service of students who want to make a difference in their studies and careers. This year surprise was to have one of the interns from the Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications and Information Technology in Bucharest. Also dedicated to young generations of developers, the ‘Infoliceanul’ contest brought to light high-school talents that we are looking forward to have in the team some years from now.
Last, but never least. Success was checked on several sides of the business, starting with the most important international IT fairs and events like the Mobile World Congress, CeBit, AppsWorld, IT&Business, CommunicAsia, mobile applications listed on AppStore (iXchange), or the 10-year celebration of win-win iFinance partnership with no.1 supplier in the bakery industry in the CENTRU development region.
We are proud to mention that our CEO, Ciprian Candea was named Vice President for International Relations within ANIS, sharing bags of experience on his first speeches in this quality at the Internet & Mobile World in Bucharest and Cyber Security in Sibiu, IT & Business Trade in Stuttgart.
With all of the above scheduled and checked in the agenda, we can say 2015 was a heaven of a year. And since we never stop, here is ROPARDO already prepared for 2016.
