Date: 24.11.2008

Avendi and AstraZeneca Bulgaria were named the best employers of 2008 at a November 21 ceremony in Sofia. The awards come following research of into employers in Central and Eastern by Hewitt Associates; this is the third year that such recognition has been given in Bulgaria.

Avendi, which operates in the marketing and distribution of fast-turnover goods, won as the best large employer in Bulgaria, while the pharmaceuticals company AstraZeneca was named the best in the small and medium-sized business category.

Construction industry player Hilti Bulgaria came in second in the small and medium-sized business category, followed by Colliers International, the IT company Telerik and the generic medicines producer TP Sandoz, Hewitt Associates wrote on its website.

In the large business category, it was McDonald's Bulgaria that took second, followed by the IT sector company SAP Labs Bulgaria, DHL Express Bulgaria and TBI Credit.

Overall, Hewitt Associates looked at 84 companies in various industries across the country and heard the opinions of how the situation stands for more than 13 845 total employees of different positions, a press release issued by AstraZeneca Bulgaria read.

In undertaking the research, Hewitt Associates wrote on its website, it took into account criteria termed “engagement”, like if employees want to be part of the company, ie, they're not looking to leave; how they speak about their employer to friends, colleagues and clients, and if they recommend it to people close to them who are looking for a job; and if they make a concerted effort to help the company succeed.

For consideration in the employer of the year competitiion, companies had to employ at least 50 people full-time and to have been on the Bulgarian market for at least two years. Participation was voluntary.

On its website, Hewitt Associates wrote that employees at the top companies were very engaged in their workplaces, with an active engagement percentage of 74, which was 21 per cent higher than the Bulgarian average.
