The Engineering and R&D company DIS is growing rapidly and has hired 143 new employees in 2016.
The engineering and R&D company DIS (Dansk IngeniørService A/S) is currently experiencing rapid growth. During 2016 the company has hired 143 new employees and has grown by 52% in the number of employees. They have opened an office in Aalborg as well as the office in the Copenhagen area has moved into new and bigger facilities in Ballerup. DIS has also experienced growth internationally. In the spring of 2016, a subsidiary was opened in the Polish metropole Krakow and in Lviv in Ukraine, and in the fall the USA was added to the portfolio with offices in Chicago, IL, Houston, TX and Atlanta, GA.
It is especially at the headquarter office in Stilling near Aarhus that DIS has welcomed the many new employees, but also the offices in Aalborg, Esbjerg and Copenhagen as well as the subsidiaries in Germany, Poland, Ukraine and the US have added engineering skills and expertise.
- It is always a pleasure to welcome new employees. Over the past few years we have experienced significant growth and an increasing demand for our services worldwide. This has required additional resources, in order for us to retain and develop the high quality of engineering services we are known for, says Michael Gadeberg CEO and partner at DIS.
To ensure that new employees are well-prepared when they start working for DIS they are offered participation in a ‘Buddy program’.
- Each and every month we add new employees and it is of vital importance to us that all feel welcome and quickly become part of DIS. Therefore, we have a so-called ‘Buddy program’ where we match a new colleague with a more experienced DIS employee. Both are typically from the same department and have the same professional background. The experienced colleague passes on both practical information and general experience and works as a sounding board for the new colleague, says Michael Gadeberg.

DIS received an overall 6th place in the category “Medium Sized Workplaces” in the internationally acknowledged employee based survey administered by the consultant company Great Place to Work.
