Opportunity to be chosen.

OPPORTUNITY TO BE CHOSEN

Within this program, an authentic employer brand is being developed that convincingly communicates Atlantic’s vision, mission and value, and ensures Atlantic is considered an excellent place to work. These activities span from the first encounter with job ads, through the application process, to selection and negotiating with new colleagues about joining the company.

This is where programs, such as Talent Acquisition, intended to attract new talents to the system, and Atlantic Tag – for managing the recommendation system for potential future employees, are found.

TALENT ACQUISITION

Recruitment and selection forms are a core part of the central activities underlying human resource management. It frequently forms an important part of the work of human resource managers and specialists.

When it comes to hiring needs based on job description and candidate target profile, Recruiter and Hiring Manager will agree on candidate sourcing approach and the right set of criteria for candidate screening. Providing hiring team members with the right information while developing the recruitment plan can help the team converge to a better and quicker decision on candidates.

Talent Acquisition professionals understand that each talent has something of value to offer. They also build relationships with the best of the talent that lead to more successful networking, more referrals, more business and an amazing give and take of expertise, knowledge and information.

Talent Acquisition is ongoing cycle of process that start by building Employer Brand and ongoing relationship with targeted Talent segments. This approach leads to the development of talent pools and talent pipelines eventually creating sustainable talent supply chain.


REFERRAL

Atlantic Recruitment Team read around 90.000 CV’s on yearly basis and hire more than 700 new colleagues. Considering this dynamic statistic which consist of 2 new employee every day, when it comes to process of recruiting, it was always hard task to provide feedback for every single individual that maybe you have motivated or recommended for applying on position. In case if you have forwarded exceptional CV to Human Resources Department, but never got a response considering your recommended candidate or you just don’t feel comfortable asking all the time in which part of process is your candidate – we introduce you a new extension on Recruitment Portal to a project conducted by HR Department called “Chance to secure yourself an excellent company”.

Whenever you recommend a person that have already applied to a current vacancy or our database of candidates, you basically become part of HR team by providing your assistance in order to recognise the best fit. Your opinion represents valuable source of information for HR Department as well as for Hiring Manager and it’s considered as an addition to a regular tool that are being used in a process of acquisition and recruitment.

ATLANTIC TAG

When it comes to recruiting a new person for AG Talent Pool or currently open positions you are becoming an extension to HR Team and automatically taking part in Atlantic Tag programme of awarding. Taking into consideration that your candidate wouldn’t apply without your engagement, you acquire a chance to be rewarded with prize money. Every time when we decide to hire a candidate which you have recommend and he stays in company for at least 6 months, you will be rewarded with money prize. But prize money only applies on so-called critical positions. Critical positions are that kind of positions that are deficitary on labour market so we’re not capable of assembling candidates with required competencies through our regular sources.

Because our employees are in a unique position to truly understand the qualities and capabilities that make a successful employee in our company, referral program aims to tap into this recruitment potential. By referring a candidate to our talent pool, you are giving our recruitment efforts a significant boost in our never-ending quest of hiring the best & brightest for our company.

Opportunity to be involved.

BE INVOLVED

This is about ensuring that all the tools new colleagues need from their first day at work are available to them right away in order for them to be independent and efficient. Programs are created within it that enable a functional adjustment as well as a social integration into the Atlantic community.

StartA, Welcome Book and On boarding, as theoretical and practical programs aimed at getting to know the company, are a part of this program.

ONBOARDING

We are here to provide you with the tools, resources, and knowledge to become successful and productive through a wide range of activities which you’ve received in your Welcome package but the whole process lasts until you become fully independent or by the end of your probation period.

Individual Onboarding program is custom made for each new employee joining Atlantic Grupa. We will introduce you, through one-on-one meetings, to other colleagues, key contacts, and stakeholders at the company with whom you’ll cooperate closely.

This will give you a broader picture of Atlantic’s operations and better insight into other departments, especially where they overlap with yours.

FACILITY TOURS

These tours are an opportunity to see how our products are manufactured and to understand the processes behind their development.

Other opportunities include store checks with our sales representatives since they give insight into the way products are sold and can provide a good foundation for planning your activities.

StartA

Within the first few months, the Onboarding team will provide you training together with other new employees through dialogue with senior colleagues. StartA is designed to give you practical guidelines and to introduce you to the company through dialog with senior colleagues.

GOOD CATCH PHOTO WALL

To tackle the growing challenge of introducing new members to our community we connected them by ”Good Catch” photo walls installed in Belgrade, Ljubljana, and Zagreb. Situated in common places like cafes they provide an opportunity to present new employees in an individual and non-formal fashion, thus kicking off their networking and socialising with colleagues.

DRESS CODE

As a corporation striving to step out of the box, seizing and making opportunities, Atlantic Grupa stepped out with a new concept of corporate dress code to fit its profile, and to give its employees an opportunity to dress more authentically.

In a nutshell, we embraced a new dress code which in fact doesn’t fit any usually used patterns (such as formal, business casual, casual etc.) so we’ve chosen to call it Appropriate Dress Code. As a principle, we can say that the new dress code can be generally described as less strict than traditional business wear, but not necessarily so. It primarily depends on the occasion. The simple rule is – dress neatly and in accordance with plain business reason, bearing in mind the environment and people you will be meeting during your day at work. The main goal is to dress accordingly.

We have decided to loosen the dress code because we would like our employees to feel comfortable at work, and to feel free to express themselves through their choice of attire; every day at work now represents an opportunity for you to make an impression – to be dressed in a professional, yet individualized and, depending on the occasion, a more casual way.

We care how our offices look and so should you.

BUILDING A GOOD IMAGE

Our offices are a part of the company’s image and therefore should express neatness and professionalism, combined with the specific style of the person who works in it.

It’s assumed that employees come to the workplace completely ready for work. In case an employee needs to leave during work hours, he or she must inform the manager. Trading for own or third party accounts or similar activities in the company are expressly prohibited, as is the case with smoking in prohibited areas. Consumption of alcohol or drugs is also not allowed.

Opportunity to be exceptional.

BE EXCEPTIONAL

There are several programs intended to assist employees reach their full potential, improve their work efficiency by investing into skills, knowledge and behaviour while growing and developing. These programs educate Atlantic employees not only at work, but also beyond it.

Various development programs such as Leader Lab, Functional Lab, Talent Lab and My Lab and other development and training programs; OPP programs and career management – the ones that cover the development processes in Atlantic.

[email protected]

[email protected] is a collective name for all development activities within the Atlantic Grupa, and all the programs within it are created for specific groups and specific learning needs. The whole concept is made up of four sub-areas.

Since most of employee’s development happens on the job, it is important that each employee takes an active role, thinks of the skills and knowledge they would like to gain and picks development opportunities our Ocean has to offer. So, do not hesitate to consult your local Talent & Development team for development related tips. In the meantime, check regularly HR.net – My development module and apply for open trainings and activities that fit your interests.

CAREER MANAGEMENT (OPP)

Atlantic Grupa puts high focus on managing employees’ careers. This process is conducted through Organization and People Panels (OPPs) – bi-annual meetings where managers discuss organization and employees’ capabilities, career outlooks and succession plans. After OPP meeting, every employee receives feedback and further guidelines for individual development.

EXCHANGE PROGRAM

Atlantic Grupa Employee Exchange Program is designed to facilitate an exchange of employees so that young and mid-career professionals can acquire new experiences, new contacts and develop new competencies. The program duration is 2 working days and the aim is to cooperate with other FCMG companies on the market. Its benefits include self-development, networking, exchanging ideas and learning about other business perspectives.

GRADUATE TRAINEES

Graduate Trainee Program is program for young graduates without experience who have the potential to become leaders or high-level professionals in the future. Program lasts one year, and during this period Trainees have the opportunity to get to know various functions/ businesses, work in the field, and lead a business project. They also participate in formal trainings, and have continuous mentors’ and HR support. After program ends, final assessment takes place, and based on results they become permanent AG employees.

ADVENTURE

Adventure is an international development program for young professionals and managers. During 12 months period participants get the chance to develop their competencies in the area of business understanding, teamwork, project management, public presentation, finance, etc. Besides formal training, they also gain hands-on experience through working on strategic business projects in the international team with the mentoring support of top executives and prime experts from all over Atlantic.

Opportunity to be successful.

BE SUCCESSFUL

To be successful means to be responsible for your work performance, to plan and revise your career goals, to provide feedback within your team while achieving a transparent and purposeful progress process.

We implement Be Successful through performance management programs – U3 and the so-called Real time blitz feedback where feedback is given to colleagues and the team.

PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT AT ATLANTIC GRUPA

Performance management is a people process and a partnership with employees.

By managing performance at AG we want to connect the success of an individual employee to the success of the entire company by balancing organisational, departmental, and individual objectives, as well as by improving the efficiency of the individual and the team. The performance management system is focused on results, and is flexible and adaptable to changes in business and job positions. We manage performance:

  • Yearly performance management process within U3 form (for Rewarding and Non Rewarding population)
  • Monthly or quarterly performance evaluation (Sales, Production, Logistic)
  • Project participation evaluation (Strategic corporate projects)

As a result – oriented organisation Atlantic Grupa has a performance management system based on following prerequisites:

  • Responsibility for results must be clearly assigned and understood
  • Performance management process must provide usable information which acts as the base for business decisions
  • Individual development, compensation and benefits, rewards and recognition, ought to be connected to established success
  • Performance management processes must be positive in nature and encourage improvement and development

We manage process in HRnet self service portal.

In order to encompass all performance aspects of one individual, the objectives are divided into three categories:

  • Business goals
  • Business development or Business process goals
  • People goals

The weighting factor of the given categorisation of objectives varies depending on job systematisation.

REAL TIME FEEDBACK

The central purpose of Real Time Feedback is the possibility of actively requesting feedback from your supervisor or team/project manager from your own or other departments whom you have worked with on joint tasks or projects. The aim is that through active and constant requesting of feedback, to enable continuous personal development and performance improvement.

Opportunity to be

Atlantic Grupa helps its hard working crew adopt healthy habits, do their favourite sports, get their preventive medical check-ups done, balance their days, weeks, years.  

Atlantic Body, Atlantic Mind, Atlantic Soul and Atlantic Spirit – are programs that support all these actions and are also geared towards the physical and mental wellbeing of Atlantic employees. These programs ask you how you are, if you have been to see your doctor, if you engage if any sports, if you support your creativity and if you, at the end of it, in the annual survey, can say you are satisfied with all of it.

Flexible working hours mean that the daily working hours may begin between 7.30 – 9.00 AM and end between 3.30 – 5.00 PM. Therefore, you can complete the 8 hours of work within those timeframes.

These provisions are not applicable to colleagues who do shifts and field work, and to those whose nature of work does not allow them to work flexible working hours since the schedule of their working hours is set within a fixed period.

Variable daily working hours

Another option the Atlantic employees have is to work a total of two hours less in one workday than the regular workday within the framework of each individual week as long as they make up that time during one or more workdays during that same week and thereby meet the regular weekly number of hours established by the Decision on Working Hours.

Working off-site

Working off-site implies working from home or some other place that is not the employer’s premise as selected by the employee. Working from home can be approved for four workdays per month for the most. These days must be used several times, one day at a time.

Sabbatical – one time leave

Sabbatical is a new opportunity that allows our employees to take a six-month leave, under certain circumstances, in order to gain professional training, education or some sort of personal development. The program is implemented as a part of the human resources development system and aims to keep key talents in the company as well as to attract new, potential talents.

Engagement survey

Employee engagement is a key business driver for organizational success. Engagement has clear overlaps with the more exhaustively researched concepts of commitment and organizational citizenship behavior, but there are also differences.
In particular, engagement is two-way: organisations must work to engage the employee, who in turn has a choice about the level of engagement to offer the employer.

Opportunity to be recognized.

BE RECOGNIZED

In this part of the cycle we want to recognise people as individuals, acknowledge their work and contribution while nourishing the culture of responsibility, initiative, openess with maximum acknowledgment, acceptance and transparency. We want to show everyone that it is best when people are themselves and that, as such, they are appreciated.

Programs such as Flex Benefit systems and Wind of Change are just some of the programs that celebrate our values.

Wind of Change

In challenging and ever-changing waters of modern economy when the best companies are recognized by their ability to find new approaches in production, distribution and customer relationship, creativity is the one thing that separates the good from the best. Creativity is an essential part of success, and main characteristic of outstanding individuals and companies. To create something new, innovate existing and make current better is the process that needs extra effort and willpower. Those characteristics have to be appreciated and nurtured.

Every employee within the Atlantic Grupa can participate and contribute to company’s development, by sharing their ideas and thoughts and by expressing creativity. Sign up your creative ideas by following the sharepoint link, whether they are about a product or process innovation, organizational innovation or marketing and sales innovation.

Opportunity to be related.

BE RELATED

All of us leave our marks in our work environment, in the colleagues sitting next to us, in the people we share our offices, work tasks or team successes with. Once you leave your mark in Atlantic and decide to find your dream job elsewhere, we will encourage you to stay in touch, as our company’s ambassadors, as friends. Therefore, through the exit interview and Atlantic’s Alumni program we strive to extend that friendship to the period following your employment at Atlantic.

Exit Interview

During the exit interview, we talk about overall experience someone had while working in Atlantic, and try to understand what we could have done (in the past ) or should do differently in future in order to shape inspiring and enjoyable workplace for everyone working with us. We appreciate when people follow their heart and dreams, and when someone makes a decision to leave Atlantic, we do not close the door on them, but try to keep in touch and maintain relationship of mutual trust and benefit.

Atlantic Alumni Club

We have prepared Atlantic Alumni initiative, aiming to establish the network of ex-Atlantic employees that will help us have smooth and structured relationship with all those who once used to be part of our company (and, who knows, maybe they will be again :). The idea behind, is to share with them news  of  the company, job openings, new initiatives, to invite them to join our workshops, company gatherings, to be the first to taste our new products,  and finally to be, together with our employees, our employer brand ambassadors.

Here's just a few tips that
will help you learn the
ropes around here.

communicate
and have lots of
ways to do it.
