The best employers in Slovakia are Philip Morris Slovakia and Allianz-Slovenska Poisťovňa, a.s., according to a survey. These firms won in the categories of small and medium-sized companies and large employers, respectively, in the seventh annual Best Employers Slovensko study organised by Aon Hewit, which operates in the area of human resources management.
In the category of small and medium-sized companies, the company Banchem, which is involved in development, production and sale of cleaning substances and disinfectants, placed second. Medeko Cast, a producer of castings, was next, while Hilti Slovakia, which manufactures products for the construction industry followed. The project, engineering and consulting firm Reming Consult closed the top five small and medium-sized employers in Slovakia.
In the category of large employers, beer producer Heineken Slovensko came second, followed by construction and trading company ViOn. The study results further also suggested that employee motivation in Slovakia has decreased over the last two years, but remained unchanged from last year.
“Global trends show that in the last quarter of 2010, the number of companies where motivation grew was higher than the number of those where motivation was decreasing. This has resulted in the start of stabilisation of the motivation rate on a global level. This tendency has been confirmed in Slovakia, too, where motivation remains at 47 percent this year," the study's project manager, Ivana Vandličková, told the SITA newswire.
She added that employees feel that companies do not see them as their most valuable assets. The Best Employers Slovensko study evaluates criteria such as employees' motivation, accord between employees, management and HR policies and internal processes. The chart of employers features 44 companies with 50 or more full-time staff members.
