Who we are

Who we are

Optimal HR Group was founded in 2005 to provide high quality, personalized HR services to medium and large companies operating in Greece and the MENA region.

Ten years later we are based in Athens with branch offices in Nicosia, Dubai, Manama and Lagos. Our clients include banks, pharmaceutical companies, hotel & retail chains, IT and industrial firms.

As of 2014, Optimal HR Group is the exclusive Gi Group partner for Greece, Bahrain and the UAE. The Gi Group is one of the world's leading companies providing services for the development of the labor market offering a vast array of products and services in 40 countries around the world.

Celebrating our 10 yrs

Back in 2005, when I decided that HR services will be my focal point, I aimed at creating a boutique firm, focused on inter-personal relationships. As we reach our 10th year anniversary, I'm glad to witness that we have grown into a group of specialized companies, expanded our geographical presence, created valuable strategic alliances, and currently enjoy a market recognition usually reserved for much larger competitors.

What I'm thrilled about is that we have achieved all this without deviating from our original focus, treating our clients and candidates on a personal basis, thus creating long-lasting, mutually-beneficial relationships.

Much has changed in the Greek marketplace during this time and our ability to adapt and evolve has surprised even me. I'm certain that the next decade will prove equally challenging, but I am confident that our strong team will rise to the challenge.

I look forward to sharing our future news with you.
