“Accountor is a growing, international player and a pioneer of electronic financial and HR management, and that highly benefits our customers. The organisational change expedites HR4’s growth and helps the business reach the next level. Operating as part of the Accountor Group also creates new opportunities for internationalisation. In the future, we can develop concepts that respond to customers’ needs more rapidly and extensively together with other Accountor Group companies,” says Kai Myllyneva, Chairman of the Board of HR4.
