This year, 200 companies earned the Lovable Workplace award at the competition, which was held in Hungary for the sixth time, where more than 1,700 companies took part, dreamjobs.hu, the competition’s organizer, told MTI on Wednesday.
According to the statement, 50.4 percent of the participating companies are small and the majority of them are active in software development. This year again, the companies were awarded the best in terms of employee votes or the opinion of the professional jury.
In Hungary, 200 companies won the “Lovable Workplace” award,
eight Hungarian companies won the HR and Employer Branding professional award, based on the judgement of the professional jury,
while two companies won the “I would work here” special award, based on the opinion of employees who indicated on the job-seeker dreamjobs.hu website that they would like to work for them.
According to the announcement, BOOKR Kids, Infosector, Számlázz.hu and Webtown were awarded the prize for the sixth time this year, winning the votes of employees in the public vote every year since 2017.
Companies in Hungary have recently been paying increasing attention to employee welfare and are trying out innovations to benefit their workforce.
Magyar Telekom recently tried out a four-day working week for four months, where employees had to work 32 hours during the week instead of 40.
They received the same pay during the reduced working hours.
The project assessed the change in workers’ performance considering whether it was worth extending the practice more widely, as only 152 people from four different jobs took part in the trial.
Telekom’s experience showed that the project was successful. Their employees reported that they worked more intensively and with fewer breaks during the four days, but found these more tiring. However, perhaps not surprisingly, there was unanimous agreement that the extra day of rest was worth the more concentrated and demanding work.
