Key events during the FY 2022 and subsequent events 



2022 has been a year of substantial changes culminating in the renewal of the Group that aimed to seize growth opportunities and adapt to the changing market needs, as well as to optimally respond to the Group’s scale. This process began with the corporate restructuring and the establishment of Gi Group Holding S.p.A. as the head of the entire Group. The objective was to create a new structure capable of simplifying hierarchical levels and governance, managing central functions, coordinating the activities of Italian and foreign subsidiaries, and defining the Group’s strategies. 


In line with the strategy of enhancing global identity and visibility, in 2022, the Group launched its Corporate Brand to represent all business lines, countries, and people, thereby strengthening brand awareness.


The two-year digital transformation plan for 2022-2023, marked by the establishment of the new “Global Digital, Innovation and Analytics” function, has been set into motion. Its primary objective is to turn Gi Group Holding into a data-driven organization, enabling informed decision-making through descriptive, diagnostic, and predictive analysis. Moreover, the plan seeks to streamline the recruitment process by incorporating automation. In this scenario, the Group invested in the cutting-edge Gi-Suite tool, a multi-product application for daily activity management. To ensure the smooth implementation of the transformation process and foster its adoption, in 2023, the Global Digital, Innovation and Analytics function established the Adoption & Change unit, aiming to support and guide resources throughout the operational phases, from initial preparation to monitoring selected KPIs, and the Database Monetization project to leverage the database’s potential. 

在2022年,收并购战略仍然是加快集团发展和增长的关键驱动力之一。随着2023年1月成功收购The Bridge Social,杰艾控股完成了其第50次收购,实现了一个重要的里程碑。卓有成效的外部增长战略也取得了重大成就。事实上,杰艾控股在毕马威意大利和Fineurop Soditic共同举办的”2023年并购大奖“中获得了享有盛誉的”最佳融资促增长”奖。

During 2022, the M&A strategy has remained one of the key drivers to speed up the Group’s development and growth. With the successful acquisition of The Bridge Social, finalized in January 2023, Gi Group Holding completed its 50th M&A operation, accomplishing a significant milestone. The fruitful external growth strategy also led to significant achievements. Indeed, Gi Group Holding earned the prestigious “Finance for growth” award at the “M&A Award 2023” promoted by KPMG Italy and Fineurop Soditic.


Within Gi Group Holding’s business model, the ESG growth factors, which include the commitment to constantly generate not only economic but also social value, represent the key drivers to achieve true “Sustainable Work.” 


To pursue this commitment, the Group partners with the Gi Group Foundation, which in 2022 obtained the status of an Italian “Third Sector Entity” designation. The Foundation supports the dissemination of the culture of Sustainable Work by implementing projects and providing targeted support for inclusion, targeting individuals facing difficulties in accessing or being excluded from the labor market.


Additionally, aligned with the pursuit of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the CSR Committee has identified the Group’s priority goals: 

  • 4 – Quality Education 优质教育

  • 5 – Gender Equality 性别平等

  • 8 – Decent Work and Economic Growth 体面工作和经济增长

  • 10 – Reduced Inequalities 减少不平等

  • 17- Partnership for the Goals 促进目标实现的伙伴关系

最后但并非最不重要的是,在2022年,委员会决定将重点放在一个新的目标上,即可持续发展目标1 ——无贫穷。根据集团的战略、运营和公司管理,为弱势群体创造就业机会,并确保供应链上所有利益相关者都享有有尊严和可持续的工作条件。

Last but not least, in 2022, the Committee decided to focus on a new objective, SDG 1 – No Poverty, by creating employment opportunities for disadvantaged groups and ensuring dignified and sustainable working conditions for all stakeholders along the supply chain, in line with the Group’s strategy, operations, and corporate governance.


This social role, embedded in the Group’s core business, is also reflected in the Ethical Code. The document, adopted since 2014, was updated in October 2022, along with three new Global High-Level Policies: Anticorruption Policy, Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Policy, and Whistleblowing Policy, applicable to all Group companies.
