About Best Employers Bulgaria

The engagement survey and the certification program has been conducted by ARS Bulgaria for the 16th year in a row. Last year, 8,288 employees from 32 companies participated in the Best Employers Bulgaria Initiative.

Data shows a high jump in the overall engagement of employees in Bulgaria, with as much as 77% (compared to 67% in 2019). Increased engagement in Bulgaria follows a positive trend compared to that in Europe, where overall engagement is declining.

In addition to Engagement, there are 19 more retaining and motivating factors of the work environment that are measures with the Best Employers survey methodology. Some of them are Talent Focus, Leadership, Agility, Virtual Work Effectiveness, Work/Life Balance, Collaboration, Brand, Diversity & Inclusion, Careers & Development and other.

Participation in the study is voluntary. In order to take part in the study, companies should have no less than 50 full-time employees and at least 1 year of operation in Bulgaria. The certified companies are announced on the official ceremony in Q1 each year, on which all participating organizations are invited.
