Telerik Once Again Rises to the Top with High Scores in Training and Development, Work Environment, Benefits and More

Sofia, Bulgaria – March 19, 2014 – Telerik AD today announced it has once again been named “Best Employer” in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), among medium size companies with up to 1,000 employees. Telerik AD is the only Bulgarian company to be recognized as a best place to work in CEE in this year’s survey, implemented by Aon Hewitt, the global leader in human resource solutions.

With 93% employee engagement, this is not the first time Telerik was ranked Best Employer in the CEE region. In addition, Telerik has been named a leading employer in Bulgaria for six consecutive years, including being ranked first in 2013, 2012, 2010 and 2007.

Compared to the Bulgarian employee engagement average of 54%, and the IT industry average of 63%, the high appraisal by Telerik AD employees in 2013 is attributed to its training and professional development opportunities, great work environment, excellent remuneration, benefits packages and company resources.

“Through the years we have been distinguished with more than 320 accolades, but the ‘Best Employer’ in CEE and Bulgaria awards remain our most precious recognition. We are proud that since 2007, our colleagues have continuously demonstrated high levels of engagement with Telerik. With changing and scaling to the future needs of the company, we remain committed to keeping Telerik a great place to work,” said Svetozar Georgiev, co-founder and CEO of Telerik.

The 2013 study includes data from a survey of over 360,000 employees in more than 430 organizations across Central and Eastern Europe. The final ranking is based off Aon Hewitt’s established methodology and it includes the votes of the participating companies’ employees.

“All employers are confronted by the same set of economic circumstances, but our Best Employers are able to do a substantially better job of leading and managing the workforce to create high levels of engagement. This mitigates many of the economic issues they face—leading to better results,” said Rita Veres, Employee Engagement CEE Lead at Aon Hewitt.
