Employers that stand out during the pandemic awarded the Excellence During Challenges recognition
We have announced the latest recipients of the Excellence During Challenges award. It is a recognition with which, since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, we reward those employers who demonstrate a high level of care for their employees.
Employers are evaluated in several categories to obtain this recognition. Areas that are evaluated are companies’ adaptability and flexibility, organization of work and communication with employees in times of crisis, initiatives that have been launched to ensure the health and well-being of employees and the companies’ technological readiness for new ways of working.
The newest recipients of this recognition are:

In Elos, a leading company in Croatia for the design and engineering of lighting solutions, they point out that they are focused on motivating communication and providing support and a sense of security to their employees, and that they were not forced to lay off employees due to the pandemic crisis, but were also able to also reward the engagement of their employees through salary growth. They emphasize that during the entire period of the pandemic, all preventive epidemiological measures were being effectively implemented and that employees whose nature of work allows it are enabled to work from home.
Franck enabled their employees to work from home with all the necessary equipment during the pandemic, while they also provided transportation to the workplace for those employees who, due to the nature of their work, have to work on-site. Employee benefits remained the same, and the company's caring approach to their employees was also evidenced by a recent satisfaction survey in which as many as 81% of employees participated. The results showed, among other things, that employees highly value transparency in communication, a clear and stable structure of the company, and the fact that they are actively involved in making important decisions.
