December 15, 2023 — ELEKS, a global custom software development company, has proudly won the prestigious Employer Branding Stars Award 2023. This recognition celebrates ELEKS' outstanding commitment to creating a compelling and inclusive workplace, emphasizing corporate social responsibility and the well-being of its specialists.
The particular title Employer Branding Star is given to the employers with the result above 50% points of overall brand diagnosis. ELEKS was audited and verified positively as a company caring about building a strong employer brand.
The Employer Branding Stars Award acknowledges ELEKS's holistic approach to talent attraction, internal and external communications, and inclusiveness.
In addition to the Award, the company is especially recognized in the Candidate Experience category for the company's outstanding candidate experience practice, which is very valuable as we care a lot about the candidate's journey with ELEKS, starting with our first contact until we can warmly welcome a specialist in our community.
Kateryna Andrushchenko, Head of the Employee Relations Office at ELEKS, presented the company's case online to the global professional community at the EBstars Global Festival, showcasing ELEKS employer brand and practices.
"ELEKS stands not just as a company but as a family that has thrived for 32 years, firmly rooted in Ukraine and extending its branches globally. Expanding across diverse geographical locations presents incredible opportunities to be closer to our customers but also poses a unique challenge—how to unite our colleagues worldwide and ensure that the essence of ELEKS's culture resonates with each of us. Our corporate focus on providing a positive employee experience has been central to our journey. This Award is a significant milestone, signifying recognition of our internal practices. Kudos to all my colleagues in the People Operations department for their invaluable contributions." said Kateryna Andrushchenko.

ELEKS got this ranking with other 2023 winners, such as Deloitte, Continental, Shell, Swarowski, PWC, Coca-Cola, and Biedronka.

They came to us with their best people to try to understand our context, our business idea, and developed the first prototype with us. They were very professional and very customer oriented.
