Endava is the leading IT services employer in Romania, for the third year running
Endava is maintaining its position as the IT services employer of choice in Romania for the third consecutive year, according to a recent Biz Magazine study. The prominent business magazine, looked at an extensive number of companies in the IT industry nationwide, analysing the key success factors for employment and employee retention, both from the employer’s and the employees’ perspective.
The study outlines the dynamics of the IT industry in Romania, where in a highly-competitive environment the company culture and the overall experience have now overtaken the salary package, formerly the decisive element for employees looking to join a company.
For consistency, similar criteria to the ones in the previous editions of the ranking were used to evaluate the companies, with salary and ongoing projects being given a weight of 25 percent each, employment potential 20 percent and company culture representing 30 percent of the total rating, putting a strong company culture at the forefront of employee satisfaction. Over 70 companies that employ more than 100 people in their Romanian offices, and over 300 people working in IT, randomly selected employees, were involved in the survey to ensure an objective market overview.

commented: “Ranking as the leading IT services employer in Romania is much more than a passing accomplishment for us. It represents a vote of confidence in one of our largest geographies, for our sustainable approach to growth and our vision to create success for our people through a strong company culture. To make sure we look after and protect what makes Endava special as we grow, we focus on passing on our culture and developing our people to be leaders of the future, so that we deliver excellent services for our clients.
