Czech Rep., Jun 19 (BD) – Every year, personnel consulting agency Randstad holds awards for the most attractive employers at a national level. This year, Škoda Auto won first prize in the Czech Republic, based on an independent survey of over 4,500 respondents. It is the second year in a row the car manufacturer has won first place.
While Randstad has been conducting their Employer Brand Research for 20 years worldwide, this is the third year of the Brand Research and award ceremony in the Czech Republic. Škoda and Microsoft have appeared in the top three each year so far. Kofola finished in third place this year, taking a place in the top three for the first time. In previous years, this position was held by Seznam.cz.
The 150 largest private companies in the country were rated by the general public on attributes such as attractiveness, employer reputation, career advancement opportunities, attractive salary and benefits, workplace atmosphere, and interesting job content. Other employers near the top based on these factors were IBM at #4, followed by LEGO Production, Seznam.cz, Siemens, Avast, ČEZ and Nestlé Czech Republic.
“In the eyes of most employees, those companies that offer good wages and benefits, have a pleasant working atmosphere, and offer the opportunity to get an interesting job are particularly attractive. It is these attributes, together with the emphasis on job security, that jobseekers consider to be the most important when looking for a new job. At the same time, they are convinced that employers do not provide these attributes enough,” said CEO of Randstad CZ Jacek Kowalak.
