A project that began almost 30 years ago and has been growing and specialising to offer the best service. Experience has allowed us to expand our resources throughout Catalonia and beyond, mixing technology with the skills of our team. All this has been possible thanks to a team of different professionals, and a wide portfolio of clients and candidates who have placed their trust in us over the years.
On 31 December 2021, Royal Legislative Decree 32/2021, the new labour reform act, entered into force. Axxon, in a fast and committed way, has joined its mission, in order to continue adding value to companies and people.
After 27 years, the founding partner Mariona de Puig considered that the time had come to leave the company. Mariona has been a key player in building Axxon's values, commitments and purpose. It was in that same year, 2021, when Jordi Bellvehí joined as a partner of Axxon, to continue making his way with Quim Arpí.
Thanks to digitalisation and having all of our processes online, Axxon is able to continue to add value to companies, candidates and workers in such a difficult situation as the pandemic caused by Covid-19. Covid protocols for risk prevention and safety of people are rigorously implemented and complied with.
Axxon launched its internal projects AxxonOffOn and AxxonLab. The aim of these projects is to identify and introduce major technological and digital improvements all through the value creation chain. Improved user experience and matching are its main objectives.
Owing to its growth in Barcelona, Axxon decided to open new offices at c. Balmes 114. These offices feature the space and technological advances needed to continue growing and providing a quality, specialist service.
As a result of the Modification of Spanish Law 14/1994, published on 17/10/2014, which stated that employment agencies could provide human resources consulting services, Axxon decided to merge the Selection and Temporary Employment teams to strengthen its focus on specialisation and on providing value for clients, candidates and workers.
In this same year, Axxon completed the transformational of digitisation of its administrative processes.
Mariona de Puig and Quim Arpí acquired 100% of the company.
In this year, Axxon invested in technology to carry out its first video interviews and online aptitude tests. With this technological development, Axxon took a new step to improve its user experience.
Inspired by requests by some of its most important clients, Axxon established itself in the city of Barcelona. With this decision, Axxon started its project to become a leading player in the provision of high-quality specialist services beyond the Girona area.
Quim Arpí, who joined Axxon in 2002, took over the General Management and became a new partner. Specialisation of the company’s services became Axxon’s strategic focus.
Axxon launched its first interactive website, publishing job offers in real time and opening a new online channel for attracting talent. With this action, Axxon was able to expand its range of applications exponentially.
Owing to its growth, Axxon moved into modern new offices at c. Barcelona no. 2. These offices were designed to improve the quality and specialisation of the temporary employment and selection services.
Axxon Selecting ETT became the first employment agency in Girona to obtain the ISO9001 Quality certification.
Foundation of the Axxon Recursos Humans company through which we started offering Selection and Consultancy services.
The founding partners, Mike Hurley and Mariona de Puig, acquired 100% of the shares in the company. This same year, the first specialist areas and teams to provide the Temporary Employment service were created: Industrial, Office, TOP (technicians, Officials and Professionals), Health, School transport…
With the Publication of Spain’s Act 14/1994, Axxon Selecting ETT started operating and became the first employment agency to obtain administrative authorisation in the Girona area.
In late 1993, a group of partners from Girona created Axxon Selecting ETT SLU. Among them, Mike Hurley became investing partner and, thanks to his professional background in the UK, he also became mentor and expert during the start-up of the company. Mariona de Puig, also a founding partner, undertook the management from the first moment.
