McKinsey & Company is one of the world’s premier management consulting firms. Our 21,000 colleagues in 60 countries help leaders make distinctive, lasting, and substantial improvements to the performance of their organizations. The consulting teams our office in Poznań assists rely on highly motivated support professionals as thought partners to help them meet their project demands.
In January 2011, the first service lines in the EMEA Shared Service Center in Poznan, consisting of just 19 colleagues, began to offer remote support for McKinsey consultants in European and the Middle East. Being part of McKinsey, a global management consulting firm, has meant constant development and dynamic growth for our office. In less than six years we have grown into a community of more than 500 colleagues. Our office is a welcoming environment built by young professionals with a very good command of foreign languages – multi-talented people who enjoy customer-oriented, collaborative work but also stay focused on their individual development.
Our future can best be described with two words: "dynamic changes." This means that foreseeing the future of the Poznan service center in detail presents quite a challenge. One of our main mottos – Create your own McKinsey – gives us, the employees, many opportunities to combine our intrinsic strengths and inborn talents with the firm’s needs. As a result, each employee can influence how our office develops, bearing in mind McKinsey's mission: “To help our clients make distinctive, lasting and substantial improvements in their performance, and to build a great Firm that attracts, develops, excites, and retains exceptional people.”
