Thursday, 27/03/2008

The results of the Best Workplaces Competition, as well as the trends of the Greek labor market for the 1st semester of 2008, will be presented in Thessaloniki at the National Exhibition Centre 'HELEXPO' in a special event organized by the graduate department of the American College of Thessaloniki (ACT) and ALBA Graduate Business School, in the framework of 'Career Days'.

The presentation will take place on Saturday, March 29, between 16.30-18.00, with the participation of two companies from Northern Greece - HELLENIC FABRICS S.A. and EAGLES PALACE HOTEL - that were qualified in this year's competition.

Mr. Dimitris Laios, Human Resource Manager at HELLENIC FABRICS S.A. and Mr. Harisis Chatzigeorgiou, Operations Manager at EAGLES PALACE HOTEL will present the practices and policies which they employ in the Human Resource sector and have helped the companies stand out in the Competition.

The Best Workplaces Competition is organized by the Great Place to Work® Institute Hellas with the scientific cooperation of ALBA Graduate Business School. The best workplace environment is partly determined by the human resource practices and policies undertaken by the company, but primarily by the way the employees evaluate their workplace environment and their relations with the company.

The event will be coordinated by Dr. Kostas Axarloglou, Academic Director of the ALBA & ACT Programs. Furthermore, Mr. Panagiotis Tarsinos, Project Manager at the Applied Research & Innovation Department, ALBA Graduate Business School, as well as referee of the Best Workplaces competition, will present the methodology of the competition, as well as the results of the recent survey of ALBA Recruitment Confidence Index - 1st Semester of 2008 (RCI), whereas Mr. Akis Papagiannis, Managing Director of CPG CONSULTING will present strategies for workplace improvement.

'Career Days' are regarded as the largest meeting of young people and companies for the last years. The aim of the event is to bring the companies that are active in Greece in contact with their future employees. The parallel events of 'Career Days' are open to the public and no reservations of participation are required.
