“After this year having passed a large part of its European production to Portugal, which provides several active markets, not only in Europe but throughout the world”, the German multinational decided to open its third worldwide “hub” in the Portuguese capital, which will join those currently operating in Frankfurt, Germany, and Manila, Philippines, which have more than 500 workers.
Why the Portuguese capital? “Lisbon is an attractive city even for foreigners, due to the quality of life and the dynamic startup scene it has. Besides, there is a lot of talent in Portugal, it is easy to recruit people who speak more than one language and we have universities and a higher education level. The need for recruitment is huge at this time of growth and we are unable to recruit so many people in Frankfurt “, explains Filipa Guimarães, responsible for Emma’s Southern European and Latin American markets.
