In the financial year 2010/11, ended 31 March 2011, Solucom achieved a consolidated turnover of ¤108m, up purely organically by 4% on 2009/10, in line with the target.
During the past year Solucom continued to provide support to major companies in managing their most strategic projects with such clients as Amadeus, Crédit Agricole CIB, Lafarge, La Poste or Orange.
Human resources: effects not measurable yet
The drop in the firm's staff in 2010/11 to 915 employees as at 31 March 2011, as against 978 at the end of 2009/10, has put a brake on the growth in the company's annual sales. Q4 turnover was ¤27.8m, as compared with ¤28.1m for the corresponding period in 2009/10.
The 2010/11 financial year was characterised by a sharp increase in staff churn, which came to 20% for the full year, and a slowdown in the rate of recruitment (146 recruited in the period). The steps taken a few months ago in this area will only bear fruit during the 2011/12 financial year, especially with a more dynamic salaries policy taking place.
High activity rate of 85% in 2010/11
The consultants' activity rate remained high throughout the period at 85% in 2010/11, as against 80% for the entire previous financial year. This rate is above the norm, which is between 82% and 84%.
