2024: A year of transformation
Over the past two decades, our company has continuously evolved. Founded by Lars Hinrichs as OpenBC in 2003, the company became the first web 2.0 business to go public in 2006 under the name XING. In 2019, we introduced the New Work Group, having acquired brands such as kununu and launching new businesses ourselves. We enjoyed huge success, and some major setbacks along the way. Despite these challenges and our competitors predicting our downfall, we’ve proven our resilience, continued to be forward-thinking, and always come up with ways to stay ahead of the game. However, change is constant within the New Work Group, and 2024 marks another major milestone in our evolution. We recently decided to refocus on our flagship brands XING and kununu, demonstrating our commitment to shaping the future of our company and striving towards our vision “for a better working life”.
