Sound salaries, strong brands and good collective. These were the priorities based on which thousands of respondents chose the most attractive employers of 2017. The winners were Slovak Telekom, Lidl and Henkel Slovensko.

“Collective and people were among the top reasons that the public perceives an employer as attractive, for the first time ever,” said Ivana Molnárová, executive director of Profesia.sk, as cited in the press release. “Compared with the previous year this factor has replaced work certainty and the long-term tradition of the company. It seems that today, when job applicants have a greater choice of possible jobs, they care more about the collective in which they will work and what the atmosphere is like in the work place.”

In the sixth year of the survey 11,713 respondents selected from a total of 200 nominated companies in eight categories. Compared to the 133 companies of the previous year the number of nominated companies increased significantly.
