Orange Romania will be training 450 employees using European financing. The total eligible value of the project is in excess of EUR 715,000 (RON 3,050,667) of which more than EUR 429,000 (RON 1,830,399.80) represents non- reimbursable financing.
Thus, the company will be implementing a project called “Competitive Advantage for Romania: the development of the potential of top specialists.” The project is co-financed from the European Social Fund and the national budget, via the Operational Sectorial Programme- The Development of Human Resources 2007- 2013.
The target is to increase the competency level of top specialists within the company, during trainings on human management, process improvement, process management, and innovation management.
Orange Romania posts revenues of EUR 246mln in Q3, down 8.7 percent on 2009
Orange Romania posted total revenues of EUR 246 million for the third quarter of this year, which represents an 8.7 percent decrease on the previous year. The average revenue per user was EUR 83.3.
The telecom operator had 10,398,884 customers in Romania, having lost 2.8 percent customers compared to the third quarter of 2009.
“In this quarter, as revenues from postpaid services continued to gain stability as we said previously, revenues from prepay services reflected a new decline due to the economic context. The global evolution of revenues on a comparative basis is similar to the one in the second quarter,” said Thierry Millet (in picture), CEO Orange Romania.
Orange Romania registered progress in the number of broadband clients which went up by 35 percent on Q3, 2009, thus reaching a total of 3,024,257.
Romania is currently undergoing a rough patch among European countries. Thus, in Europe, third quarter revenues rose 1.5 percent to EUR 1.143 billion, a 0.9 point improvement compared with the second quarter (+0.6 percent). The increase was mainly due to Belgium, which showed a 7.9 percent increase in revenues in the third quarter after they had risen 4.6 percent in the previous quarter. Revenues also improved in Switzerland and Moldova and continued to grow rapidly in Armenia.
“These favorable items were partially offset by a slowing of the improvement in Romania due to deteriorating economic conditions,” says the report.
