Allianz Bank Bulgaria received the Employer Of Choice 2020 award for the most desirable employer among working people. For the second year in a row, Allianz Bank ranks third in the banking sector according to an independent survey conducted by To the top Agency.
"Receiving this recognition for the second year in a row is proof that Allianz Bank applies the best employer practices. As part of the world leader in financial services Allianz, we apply international standards in the hiring and development of our employees such as regular in-house surveys, 360 degree performance appraisal, online specialized training platforms, exchange of know-how and best professional practices with teams from other countries, including an opportunity for development within the Allianz Group. We will continue to invest in people because they are the basis of the success of our business ", commented Georgi Zamanov, CEO of Allianz Bank Bulgaria upon receipt.
The Employer of Choice survey is conducted once a year and shows how companies are perceived as employers among working people in Bulgaria. Participants evaluate their chosen employer on criteria such as reputation, work environment, career opportunities, salary, security, culture, leadership, social responsibility, products and more.
The organizers of the study say that due to the precarious situation caused by the Covid 19 pandemic, this year the attitudes and preferences of people towards employers have changed. For example, the top 5 reasons for choosing a preferred employer are the financial stability of the company, reputation, brand strength, quality of products and services and opportunities for professional training and development.
In the parallel Graduate Survey 2020, measuring the image of employers among students in Bulgaria, Allianz Bank is again in the TOP 50 most attractive places to work.
"Attracting young people and students is a priority for us. Allianz Bulgaria offers various opportunities for their professional realization, training and leadership development, which is extremely valuable for a young person." – commented Tsvetilia Stoilkova, Human Resources Director at Allianz Bulgaria Holding.
A total of 14,000 respondents were workers and students who took part in the survey conducted by To the top Agency.
