The survey took place between November and December 2022 and 152 employees of various automotive companies participated. The survey was sent out to participants through the internal communication channels of Automotive Cluster Bulgaria.
The results from the analysis answer questions with regards to employee motivation and engagement in the business sector. Examples are "What motivates you to be part of the company?" and "What would motivate you to change your current employer?"
The key findings from the survey show that the main motivator for employees in engineering roles is flexible working hours, while for those employees who occupy lower hierarchy roles, competitive pay and benefits are more important.
Kuzman Iliev, economist, and psychologists from the S.O.V.A. Psychological Centre team further commented on the results. The conclusions from the research were presented at the monthly HR meeting of Automotive Cluster Bulgaria on 26.01.2023.
