Sofia, Bulgaria, November 13, 2009 - Telerik is proud to announce that it has been awarded 2nd place in the “Best Employer in Bulgaria 2009” study (small to medium size company category). The study was conducted by Hewitt Associates, one of the world’s leading HR consulting and outsourcing companies.
This year the “Best Employers in Bulgaria” study included 91 companies from various industry sectors. The assessment is based on a survey conducted among employees and therefore represents an objective appraisal from within of how people percieve their company. This year 13,000 employees and 350 top managers helped Hewitt analyze their companies based on three aspects – feedback from their employees, people management policies and practices, and the viewpoint of the top management. The criteria being evaluated are: career growth, work environment, manager-employee relationship, remuneration and benefits, balance between work and personal life, processes, etc.
“Being among the top employers is a huge acknowledgment mainly because it is awarded by our colleagues” said Svetozar Georgiev, Telerik CEO. “Ranking higher this year is clear evidence that our team is growing stronger. This is the key force that is helping us deal with the tough economic conditions and push forward.”
The study “Best Employer in Bulgaria” is conducted for the fourth consecutive year as part of the regional study for Central and Eastern Europe. Hewitt measures the effectiveness of an organization in providing a workplace that engages the intellectual and emotional commitment of its employees. It provides insights on how organizations achieve real competitive advantage through their people and explores what makes an organization a good place to work.
