10.6.2014 Company

Plzeňský Prazdroj found itself as the top answer on the majority of surveys completed by Czech college students asking which employer in the region was ‘The Most Desired Company’. The company also fared well in the main part of the Sodexo Employer of the Region competition where it placed second in the category of ‘Companies with up to 5,000 employees’.

This year’s awards ceremony took place on June 5 at the Golf and Congress Centre Darovanský Dvůr, where Plzeňský Prazdroj was a standout.

‘We value both awards. The success of Plzeňský Prazdroj was always based on the professionalism, enthusiasm and talent of our employees. We value all employees and we offer them excellent conditions including a comprehensive benefit system. Our victory in the “The Most Desired Employer of the Region” category is just more proof that Plzeňský Prazdroj is an attractive place to work,’added Manager of Employee Relations Milan Koza, in an acceptance speech.

The Association of Employers organised the competition the Employer of the Year where companies compete in three categories:

  • Sodexo TOP Employer of the Year with more than 5,000 employees
  • Sodexo Employer of the Year with up to 5,000 employees
  • Progressive Employer of the Year with up to 5,000 employees

The contest also includes the survey where business and humanities students were able to vote for ‘The Most Desired Company’, which tends to be a company where such students would like to find employment after completing their studies.
