The Need

It was no longer feasible, because of Digitalist’s rapid growth, to provide HR support to the UK from Helsinki.  The time had come to find an HR service provider able to assume the full role of Digitalist’s UK HR Department.

Isosceles was exceptionally easy to work with from the very first meeting. They are an instrumental part of the team. We look forward to expanding our relationship and working together for many years to come.
