"Employees will get 60-percent compensation of their salary on the day when they stay at home. This measure will enable us to adjust our expenses regarding the complicated economic situation in Europe," said Bača, adding that this solution also reduces the negative impact on employees and their families. "This new regime will make the company sufficiently flexible with respect to the requirements of our customers," said Bača.
