We perform our activities in large offices, more precisely in large spaces, without any walls or closed doors, and this way we believe we can make communication easier between the departments. The employees have access to and are encouraged to use the internal telephone network and the intranet. The purpose of the internal magazine, called Împreună, is to reflect the activity and success of the IM departments and of the employees. IM offers transparency to the outside world too. Everybody can see through the glass walls and can get a clue of the ongoing meetings.
The employees have mobile phones, the head of departments and the assistants have laptops and everybody has Internet access. During our activity we focus on our client. For us, the client means the future or the potential reader, subscriber etc. For maximum efficiency, we use foreign know how and the experience of our Hungarian colleagues, and the use of the synergies has become an extremely important issue.
