Curious about the benefits and threats of cloud-related solutions? Great, because moveIT 2 is all (almost) about the cloud.

What’s inside? Plenty of insights from experts, interviews with industry gurus, success stories of delivered projects and conversations with members of the team. We talked to Ronald Binkofski, General Manager CEE Multicountry CIS at Microsoft, Monica de Wit, independent management and digital security consultant and Menno Lanting, the author of Oil Tankers and Speedboats, a book inspired by meetings with 100 successful entrepreneurs worldwide.

Meeting with Satya Nadella

Today, we had an honour to meet Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella. Peter Horsten, Managing Director at Goyello, and Mateusz Linda, Head of Consulting, had an opportunity to showcase one of the most innovative cloud-based Goyello solutions developed for Flocert. The meeting was also attended by the Polish deputy Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and General Partner EY Jacek Kędzior. It was a really special moment in our more than 10 year history.

We are a Microsoft Silver Partner

We are proud to announce we have received the Silver Microsoft Cloud Platform competence. The title is granted to Microsoft partners who have comprehensive knowledge about implementing applications and server infrastructure on the Microsoft Azure platform.

To get the certification we needed firm recommendations from three satisfied clients who use applications based on Microsoft Azure, delivered by us. We also had to pass a Microsoft Azure examination. We have fulfilled both conditions.

Goyello among laureates of „Pomeranian Employer of the Year 2016”

We are one of the medium-sized enterprise laureates of the 7th edition of „Pomeranian Employer of the Year” competition, organised by the Employers of Pomerania association. Our competitors were local companies that have a staff of 51-250.

„We often hear that what distinguishes us from the competition is our unique organisational culture. The culture we are talking about is a quite difficult to define mix of Polish and Dutch components, a mix we have been working on over the last 10 years. Goyello is not only a workplace. It is also a place where people have fun, gain knowledge and new skills, relax and do sports. As an employer, we do our best to provide our people with all these things in large quantities so that they can be not only satisfied members of the team but also satisfied and happy people,” Katarzyna Szemro, Marketing Director at Goyello, said.

The jury of the competition organised by the Employers of Pomerania association awards local companies that not only obtain good economic results but also care about the positive work environment and are interested in unlocking their employees’ potential. The awards are given in three categories: small, medium-sized and large enterprise.

Among the finalists and laureates of this year’s edition there were companies that operate in accordance with best CSR practices and have adopted a friendly attitude towards its employees. Moreover, the jury acknowledged the participants’ achievements in supporting the region’s economic development.

Goyello Reunion Party 2017_

Goyello Reunion – meeting old friends

What makes Goyello so unique? Among other things, it is the fact that we deeply care about good relations and simply like each other. That is why we really enjoyed the opportunity to meet colleagues who used to work at Goyello.

The Goyello Reunion party took place on Friday, 24 February, at Pick’n’Roll, Sopot. We hoped it would be a nice evening. We didn’t expect, though, that the meeting would arouse so many unforgettable emotions.

There were conversations, toasts, and the traditional Goyello quiz about… Goyello. We were truly impressed with how many details about our cooperation our ex-colleagues still remember. It was really nice to know they remembered the old times and wanted to take a trip down memory lane with us. For us, the Goyello Reunion party was a perfect completion of our 10th-anniversary celebration.

Saltus Ubezpieczenia awarded by Rzeczpospolita

Great news! Our client, Saltus Ubezpieczenia, has been awarded the Good Brand 2017 title, granted annually by Rzeczpospolita.

Saltus Ubezpieczenia has been recognized in the “Discovery of the Year” category. The jury has taken into consideration the brand awareness, values brands promote, their market position, quality of their products as well as their marketing power and customer loyalty.

The project we developed for Saltus Ubezpieczenia is a platform that lets individuals gain access to health services that are significantly better than what the state system offers.

Congratulations!
