init[ AG opens new location in Leipzig

]init[ AG for digital communication, headquartered in Berlin, has taken a significant step in its growth strategy and successfully opened a new branch in the heart of Leipzig.

With an annual turnover of around 182 million euros in 2022 and a current workforce of over 1,200 employees, ]init[ AG is an established player in the industry. The decision to gain a foothold in Leipzig was a significant step for the company.

The story begins with ]init['s strong presence in Central Germany. In recent years, the company has attracted many digital talents from the Leipzig metropolitan region thanks to its remote work approach, which gives employees the freedom to choose their place of work flexibly. This flexibility in work organisation has proven to be extremely attractive for skilled workers in the region.

The collegial atmosphere and the distinctive team culture at ]init[ contributed to more and more employees from Leipzig and the surrounding area joining the company. It became clear that it was time to retain this committed and talented workforce at a permanent location.

New location in Leipzig city centre

The competent support of Invest Region Leipzig GmbH played a decisive role in the realisation of the new location at Barfußgässchen 11, helping with office searches and specialist services, among other things, which enabled a smooth start. Michael Körner, Managing Director of Invest Region Leipzig GmbH, emphasised the logical decision in favour of Leipzig: "The decision in favour of Leipzig is a logical one in order to bring together the employees who otherwise work remotely - this allows the team in Central Germany to grow even closer together. Flexible working remains guaranteed, above all due to the great location in the city centre."

The opening of the new location in Leipzig has several advantages for the company. Firstly, it strengthens the proximity to customers and partners in Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia, which intensifies cooperation in digitalisation projects. Secondly, the Leipzig location represents a broad portfolio of expertise that can flexibly access the resources of ]init['s other locations if required. This contributes to the company's growth strategy.

Flexible working as part of the success concept

The COOs of ]init[, Julia Läkemäker and Sandra Valentin, emphasised the importance of this move: "We give our employees the freedom to organise their working lives as flexibly as possible. By moving to Leipzig, we are following them to a place where work and private life are in harmony. It takes this appreciative culture and an inspiring environment to fully realise personal potential."

The company already has 9 locations in Germany, Belgium, Portugal and Switzerland, and Leipzig is now the 10th. The opening of the Leipzig office not only strengthens ]init['s presence in Central Germany, but also offers scope for further growth and long-term employee retention.

Overall, the establishment of ]init[ AG in Leipzig is a success story that shows how a company can drive its growth and retain talent through flexibility, innovative work concepts and the choice of an attractive location. We are delighted to have supported ]init[ AG in this exciting step and are convinced that they and their employees will have a successful future in Leipzig.
