Best Workplaces 2004 Competition - APPLY NOW!

Thursday, 17/07/2003

After the great success of the 'Best Workplaces 2003' Competition, ALBA, the newspaper To Vima and Oeconomicos Tahydromos, in collaboration with the Great Place to Work Europe organize, for the second consecutive time, the competition 'the 10 Best workplaces' in Greece, which is part of 'the 100 Best Workplaces in Europe' competition.

The competition has been institutionalized in all countries-members of the European Union; its ultimate goal is to create a list of the 100 best European companies, regarding the work environment and the Human Resources policies implemented. The winning companies of the Greek competition that will be included in the list with the 10 best workplaces in Greece will automatically ensure their participation in the European competition. Furthermore, three European companies will receive special awards for gender equality, work place diversity, and life long learning policies and practices.

This competition aims to motivate Greek companies to focus on issues of human resources, to reward those that have practically proved their respect and their interest to the individual, and, finally, to encourage the rest of the companies to adopt better Human Resources practices.

All companies that operate in Greece can participate in the competition, regardless their legal status (private or public), with the condition they occupy at least 50 employees.

All participating workplaces will experience a number of advantages. Winning companies will enjoy great publicity which will lead to more visibility to future employees, more and better qualified job applications, a larger degree of pride and higher satisfaction among existing employees as well as a lower rate of staff turnover. Companies that do not win will also experience advantages from participating, as they will receive a confidential feedback report that will help them improve and increase their chances of winning the next competition.

This project is under the wings of the Applied Research & International Projects Department (ARIP) at ALBA.
