March 15, 2024

AES Bulgaria has been distinguished as Best Employer for 2023. The company’s representatives received the award at an official ceremony held in Sofia. The awards are presented by ARS Bulgaria after conducting a thorough and objective survey among the employees of AES Bulgaria.

In order to be awarded Best Employer, companies should meet the criteria related to four factors of the work environment: employee engagement, agility, leadership, and talent focus.

Mariana Gerenova, Complex Manager at AES Bulgaria, accepted the award from Bakiya Alev, Business Development Manager at Capital Careers. ‘Being part of a company implementing the highest global standards, it is an honor, and a pleasure for me to accept this amazing award on behalf of AES Bulgaria. Along with Safety, which is our main priority, the development on the work place and the employee engagement are of utmost importance for us. Also, I believe that agility and adaptability will be important for employees’ satisfaction and engagement in the future. Thank you all for the trust and the high evaluation you demonstrate by presenting us with this award’, said Mariana Gerenova during the ceremony and congratulated her colleagues for the award.

More than 85% of the 450 employees of the company's four subsidiaries took part in the survey by assessing four key factors: employee engagement, agility, leadership, and talent focus. These four characteristics are regarded as essential to a company's successful development. Other significant work environment elements for employee engagement were also investigated, including cooperation, teamwork, decision-making, leadership support, salary and fringe benefits satisfaction, and work/life balance.

The feedback by the participants was anonymous which guaranteed the objectivity and independence of the results. Within the study, AES Bulgaria was compared to other companies operating in different areas of the Bulgarian market and with a varying number of workers.
