I am very proud of the hard work we all have made together and the Impact we created during 2021.
We have seen growth in all our markets and an increase in nr of employees. 2021 was a year of many interesting events and challenges that we all together have faced and handled very well.
The Covid pandemic
The Covid pandemic that changed way of working in many ways and that we still are learning to adapt to and to innovate together with.
We see some long term positive outcomes form this that will impact the way society operates and how it have embraced the digital way of working, a way of working that often is match made in heaven for Unicus and our employees. It has reduced some hurdles that many of our employees face, things like:
- social interaction is become less important
- work efficiency have increased – less “onsite coffee machine talking”
- work from familiar environment – stress reducing
- fewer commutes improves persons energy levels
Expansion to the Netherlands
Unicus has been established as one of the worlds leading companies within IT and Autism, and a milestone during 2021 was when Unicus entered as a shareholder in Dutch sister company Specialisterren. Through this Unicus now reach about 135 consultants on the autism spectrum and are an important employer and inspirator for the autism environment and advocacy for neurodiversity. It is a valuable addition for our customers and employees because the combined customer base and the expansion of the service offering creates even more jobs for people with autism. This will increase impact on several layers and we are looking forward to work close with Specialisterren on creating sustainable impact.
