Its ambition is to establish a presence on the US, Asian and Australian markets by the end of the decade, the TASR newswire informed in February.

The group operates in Slovakia through McRoy Slovakia, employing 2,500 external and almost 100 internal employees. It operates 10 branch offices in Bratislava, Trnava, Nitra, Trenčín, Žilina, Banská Bystrica, Košice, Michalovce, Prešov and Považská Bystrica.

McRoy CEO Michal Duška pointed out how the company’s successful building of needed structures in Slovakia has confirmed that choosing Bratislava for the headquarters of the international HR and consulting holding was a good decision.

“We are convinced that Slovakia is a suitable destination, not only for investments into industrial production, but also into services with a high extent of added value,” said Duška.
