Uniline opened a new business headquarters and introduced a new business philosophy

first_img“The borders are there to move. And we have shown it so far, we will show it in the future, ”Said Boris Žgomba, co-owner and President of the Management Board of Uniline, in front of the gathered guests and business partners during the opening of the new business headquarters in Pula.It is a new functional workspace with a total area of ​​2500 m2 on 5 floors and offices on the principle of open space and a spacious parking lot, and the entire investment amounts to 16 million kuna. What is certainly significant for Uniline is that for the first time all departments and services have been united and integrated, which enhances, accelerates, but also rationalizes the current company business, which has so far been scattered in several offices in Pula.The entire preparation, construction and equipping of the new Uniline business headquarters took less than a year and a half, and the construction itself a little more than eight months. The new building has 5 conference halls and a special space for employees to relax, and it accommodates about 150 workers. “We have come a really long way – from 1996 and two offices in the Pula hotel Riviera to today’s modern and sophisticated business building and learned and applied a lot. What we have learned first is that we must constantly and permanently listen to the needs of our guests and design and deliver our tourism products accordingly. Therefore, the opening of the new headquarters symbolically marks our entry into a new development dimension, which means that we have decided on a new company vision, mission and brand idea. ” Žgomba points out. New business philosophy – Emotions We Share               The new building represents a new milestone for Uniline and they are embarking on new business challenges with a new business philosophy and a new brand – Emotions We Share. “Everything stems from a new environment in which modern 21st century companies can only operate successfully if they have their own content, which means attractive, inspiring and special tourist experiences. Therefore, we position ourselves as a leading content travel company in designing and offering innovative experiences in Southeast Europe. As part of the new mission, we want to create them together with our clients and business partners in a sustainable environment. From this came a new brand idea: Emotions We Share! In short, our focus is on modern guests of the 21st century, who are looking for an empathetic, emotional and dynamic relationship and approach and experiences in the form of credible stories. ” concluded Zgomba.By the way, Uniline is the leading Croatian tour operator and the seventh largest company in the Croatian tourism sector in terms of total annual revenue, and today it employs more than 200 employees with an average age of 28,5 years. Uniline operates in Croatia and the countries of the region, but also in distant Asian markets, such as Shanghai in China and Seoul in South Korea, while the company’s services are used by 380 guests a year.last_img read more
