Based on the Aon Best Employers 2016 study conducted among 16,000 employees from Slovak companies we discovered the best employers on our market. The status of being a Best Employer primarily reflects the voice of employees, which is examined by the questionnaire survey. The infographics show the biggest differences between the Best Employers and other companies in the engagement level and satisfaction in various areas of their worklife. Satisfaction is determined by the level of agreement with statements in the given area (for instance: Top management treats the employees as the most valueble assets.). We can sometimes observe that the Best Employers’ satisfaction is more than two times bigger.

And how about the level of the employee engagement?

The Best Employers’ employee engagement is, not surprisingly, higher compared to other companies. On both global and Slovak market we can see that engaged employees are more effective, the quality of their work is higher, they are more inclined to innovations and provide better customer services than their non-engaged counterparts.

The average level of engagement in Slovakia in 2016 was 81 % for Aon Best Employers while the market average was 49 %.
