Postbank Once Again Receives the International Distinction ‘Top Employer’

Postbank has been distinguished as a ‘Top Employer’ in Bulgaria for 2024 by the international independent Top Employers Institute.

This financial institution, where success goes hand in hand with employee development, receives this high rating for the second consecutive year following detailed monitoring of its processes. With this recognition, the bank confirms its place among leading companies on a global and national scale, showing its commitment to providing better working conditions caring for its employees, and demonstrating excellent practices and policies in the field of human resources.

Founded over 30 years ago, the Top Employers Institute is the global authority that defines the framework for the highest achievements and results in people management. The institute’s annual analysis covers 20 areas, including the implementation of innovative people management strategies, creating a motivating work environment, attracting talent, training and development, equality and inclusion, as well as well-being and social engagement. The certification process lasts nearly six months, and the assessment is prepared by an international jury of independent experts who carefully examine the concepts, processes, and tools introduced by the employer in this area.

The universal certification method is applied in more than 120 countries on five continents. In 2024, the Top Employers Institute certified more than 2,300 organizations in 121 countries, positively impacting the lives of over 12 million employees worldwide.

‘This prestigious international distinction, which we have received for the second consecutive year, is very valuable to us. It shows us how we stand on the world map and affirms our efforts in creating a motivational work environment. We believe that the best employers create a culture that stimulates high performance and inspires employees. In this context, the results we have achieved so far clearly visualize our growth strategy, demonstrate our entirely innovative concept for attracting and retaining talent, and show the effectiveness of our selection process. In our work, the main focus is on impeccable positive customer and employee experiences, as well as on the satisfaction of the people in our team of over 4,000 professionals, with whom we together create the future of banking,’ say representatives from Postbank.

‘Exceptional times reveal the best in people and organizations. This year, we again witnessed the excellent results of the certified companies in our Top Employers program for 2024. Postbank, as one of them internationally, has shown over the years a sustainable development environment and targeted efforts to continuously improve the wellbeing of its team, which in turn enriches the world of work,’ comments David Plink, CEO of the Top Employers Institute.

Postbank is a company with over 30 years of history, with record achievements, backed by talented and proven professionals. This helps it to occupy a strategic place in retail and corporate banking in Bulgaria and to be a leading factor in innovations and shaping trends in the sector. Over the years, the bank has acquired other businesses in harmony with its growth and innovation development aspirations – DZI Bank (2006), Alpha Bank Bulgaria branch (2016), Piraeus Bank Bulgaria (2019), and BNP Paribas Personal Finance – Bulgaria branch (2023) – now under the new brand PB Personal Finance. Thus, Postbank incorporates various companies, cultures, business models, new talents, and proven professionals into its success, who find an appropriate environment to unfold and develop their talents. The high dynamics with which the company has developed over the years create many new challenges and perspectives that provoke people in the team to new achievements, personal and professional growth.

Over the years, Postbank has been awarded multiple times for its modern solutions in building a successful and motivated team and in establishing a strong employer brand.
