World's Leading Recruitment Agency Moving to Academia

Office Market

Academia Office Building

Working for your tomorrow - is the slogan of Hays Hungary Kft., founded in 2007. The Hungarian firm, which is part of the Hays Plc group, the world’s leading recruitment company will move to Academia, and continue to support thousands of employers and jobseekers from one of the most prestigious office buildings with ESG focus in the city center of Budapest from the fall of 2023.

Hays provides specialist recruitment and HR consultancy services in 256 offices globally with a staff of over 13.000 consultants. The Hungarian branch opened its doors in 2007 and since then supports employers in building future-proof HR strategies and in creating stronger organizations by finding the right, skilled talent for them. Hays is the lifelong career partner of jobseekers, it helps them find competitive and value-added opportunities and navigate in the Hungarian labor market. The similar customer-centric mindset and the pursuit of the highest quality have navigated Hays to ConvergenCE for the second time, which offers services with a similar business philosophy of customer focus.

ConvergenCE has won several awards over the years, focusing on every detail of the market to earn tenant satisfaction and trust, which are the most important aspects of the company's philosophy. In this spirit, employees and their health have been at the forefront of the design and construction of their new project for 2023, the Academia Office Building. 

A “happy” workplace helps employees to be mentally and physically fit to perform at their best, in a stress-free environment. A healthy workplace is an investment that pays off, and ConvergenCE has recognized this and provides it for its clients, including their new tenant, Hays.

"In 2010, we were the first tenants to place trust in the Eiffel Square office building developed by Europa Capital, ConvergenCE, and DVM and we are delighted to be among the first to join the premium Academia clientele," highlighted Tammy Nagy-Stellini, managing director of Hays Hungary.

"The outstanding location of the building, the modern technology, and unique solutions wrapped in the prestigious appearance of the past were decisive factors in selecting our new office. I feel that we are now in the best place where we can provide the best conditions for our team and host our clients in the most beautiful environment overlooking the Danube river. Hays is growing dynamically year on year, driving the recruitment landscape as No.1 strategic partner for employers and job seekers in Hungary. The relocation also marks the next step for Hays in developing its employer value proposition," she added.

Robert Martin, head of investments at Europa Capital explained, "Our relationship with ConvergenCE goes back many years and has always resulted in unique, high-quality developments. Academia is no exception. We are proud that Hays, a global, growing company, has once again chosen to sign a tenancy in one of our offices."

"I am delighted to have Hays back as a tenant," said Csaba Zeley, managing director of ConvergenCE. "From the drawing board, we have strived to combine our client-centric thinking and services with solutions that differentiate Academia Office Building from the rest of the market. We are aiming to achieve the Well Platinum certification for the city center, but we have also obtained the WiredScore rating. Our building may be the first to obtain both certificates in the submarket."

"It is a great pleasure to receive this kind of feedback from our customers in recognition of our efforts and work, and I am proud to be working with Hays again. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Tamara Szántó and Bettina Beke of Cushman & Wakefield for their assistance in making the deal happen," he noted.
