Plzensky Prazdroj confirms its position among the most admired Czech companies

First two positions within the Czech Top 100 “The
Most Admired Companies” survey seems to be clear and stable: Skoda Auto
and Plzensky Prazdroj. We are pleased to be the second most admired
company, evaluated both by managers/experts and by general public through
www.idnes.cz. We also got two important winning positions – in food
industry and in Pilsen region, which is especially noticeable. There is a
lot of work behind it, which deserves respect and congratulations.

There are results of our daily work, position of
our products in the market, our reputation as employer and as a
responsible corporate citizen. What is ahead of us, in the years to come?
An ambitious goal to be the most admired company in the Czech Republic.
Skoda Auto did a lot of work during last 10 years in order to achieve this:
strategic initiatives, international success, innovations, sophisticated
marketing, employee benefits and corporate citizenship.

We are extremely capable in all these areas as
well, however, we started with some of these activities a bit later than
our main “rival” in reputation. It’s time to duplicate our efforts.
