It has become a tradition to mark the year’s first issue of Executive Newswire with news about the Talent Management Award™ instituted by Stanton Chase Belgrade three years ago. In an exceedingly tough competition rallying the largest number of participants to date, the award went to NIS a.d. Novi Sad, with Nelt Group and Continental also receiving special awards. The jury – including Nevena Stefanović, Chief Human Resources Officer at Telenor, Dejana Lazić, Director of the Centre for Career Development and Student Counselling at the University of Belgrade, Aleksandar Ružević, General Manager of Coca-Cola HBC, Marina Petruševski, General Manager of Advance International, and our consultants – was faced with the exceedingly difficult, yet highly interesting task of closely analysing all the achievements of the participating companies. The special awards were a reflection of the jury’s desire to offer recognition to companies that have excelled in specific projects as well.
Furthermore, we present you an overview of our latest CEO Survey™. This time, the topic was Millennials and How Top Managers of Companies in Serbia Perceive Them. Our office has conducted extensive research on this generation and recently published a book on this topic. This survey provides another unique perspective and offers a solid foundation for future analyses and reviews.
We hope this will be an enjoyable read and wish you a successful year!
