Realogis-RLI looks to strategic growth in the crisis / forging ahead instead of reducing work hours or cutting jobs
The Realogis-RLI Investors Group is seeing high demand for consultancy services even in the coronavirus crisis. In order to provide the best possible response to the numerous changes confronting trading, logistics, e-commerce and production companies in the future, the Realogis-RLI Group is increasing its workforce by ten percent.
“We have reacted immediately to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic for our tenants and customers, adapted our services, and trained our employees accordingly,” says Umut Ertan, founder and partner of the Realogis-RLI Group.
“In the first stage, demand for alternatives to existing locations and larger spaces rose sharply. In the coming months, it will now be about weatherproofing supply chains, including in the property sector. Helping companies in a targeted manner requires a high level of true market transparency and a dependable network,” reports Umut Ertan.
“Back in the financial and economic crisis of 2008–2009, which hit the property sector hard, we did not lay off a single employee, and we continued to grow organically. Owner-operated groups tend to have a long-term focus,” says Umut Ertan. “Short-term management decisions, often aimed at maximizing the share price or cash flow, are not as important here.”
