Interim report, January - June 2016: Strong market and continued high growth
"eWork had a good second quarter. The market remains hot, our growth was high, and we executed an intensive development process to move towards our challenging targets for 2020.
In the second quarter, we took momentous steps in our efforts to build the new eWork – which will more than double in size in a few years. Demand for our services was really positive, with order intake up by as much as 50%. It's particularily satisfying that the increase in order intake derives from a broad source of growth in many of our clients. For the first time, our base of consultants on assignment passed 6,000."
