With traditionally high results, in 2023 we led the ranking for the best employer in Bulgaria, reporting the highest percentage of engagement of our team – 91%. The study is conducted by ARS Bulgaria with the exclusive partnership of the global company Kincentric.
The Kincentric Best Employer program honors the best employers in the world based on the evaluation of their employees, as reported by an independent survey. It measures the four factors empirically proven to distinguish successful companies: employee engagement, business adaptability to innovation and customer needs, top and middle management, and good people development practices. Over the past five years, 4,000 organizations worldwide have examined their HR practices using this methodology. This year’s survey includes 48 Bulgarian companies, together with a total of over 2,500 worldwide.
This is our fifth Top Employer title using this methodology. Over the years, we maintained a steady engagement rate: between 85% and 89%. The results reported in the ARS survey for 2023 testify to the consistency of our company development both in terms of employee-oriented policies and in preserving the values that are passed on to new colleagues and preserving the company culture despite growth. The result of 91% obtained in 2023 shows how we managed to surpass ourselves with the engagement rate, which is leading not only for the highly competitive IT industry, but also for the country as a whole. In addition, 90% of SiteGround-ers describe the culture as encouraging growth, learning and development among their employees; 93% indicated that the company was focused on customer satisfaction, and 92% believed that management was highly engaged with people and work needs.
“The commitment of our team proves that our constant efforts to create a motivating and inclusive work environment, good conditions for work-life balance and a responsible attitude not only to the people of SiteGround, but also to the society, are also key to our success as business”, commented Valentina Kozhouharova, SiteGround’s HR Manager.
“We congratulate SiteGround for their certification as the best employer in Bulgaria,” said Rumyana Boseva, CEO of ARS Bulgaria, Kincentric’s exclusive partner for Bulgaria. “The Kincentric methodology celebrates organizations’ outstanding achievements in creating a good work environment, positive culture and sustainable business results. SiteGround stands out from the rest with its strong employee and senior management commitment and talent developing focus.”
