Zavarovalnica Triglav – the Best of the Best in the motivation category

In 2016, AmCham Slovenia is again awarding the best business practices through its Best of the Best program. Within three presented projects in the motivation category, the audience, Best Practice Academy and the "active listener", chose Zavarovalnica Triglav and its project nadgradnja projekta Mladi upi, as the finalist.

Exceptional projects and ideas of AmCham Slovenia members have been bringing best business practices into the Slovenian business environment for 17 years. This has helped create and shape our Best of the Best program, in which we have been presenting and awarding the best business practices for the third consecutive year. These companies serve as a guide and an inspiration and they are the result of creativity and innovation of our member companies' employees. By this, we are contributing to the transfer of best business practices and positive experiences into the business environment.

At three Best of the Best events, we will present 9 best practices within three categories: INNOVATION, MOTIVATION and OPENNESS.


The purpose of the program is to present and highlight the outstanding work of employees in AmCham Slovenia member companies. Our goal is for these best practices to serve as a role model for changes in other business and companies. We are highlighting the positive and we are focused on successful stories, which we want to share and spread. Our special "Best Practice Academy" serves as a committee, which chooses the Best of the Best program finalists. Together with their help, we will spread exceptional ideas and practices that have been inspiring us for years, among AmCham Slovenia members and beyond.

Exceptional individuals and partcipants in our Best Practice Academy are: Viviana Žorž – Adecco, Ksenija Božič – BB Consulting, Aleksandra Brank – Bisnode, Mateja Panjan – Danfoss Trata, Simona Dijak – Goodyear Dunlop Sava Tires, Primož Zupan – Halcom, Mojca Perič – Helios, Tanja Subotič – IBM, Maja Langerholc – KPMG, Aleksander Baretič – Mars Overseas Holdings, Katra šemrov – Microsoft, Rok Cuderman – Petrol, Jernej Smisl – Piovarna Laško, Zvezdana Lubej – Profiles International Slovenia-Human resources, Tea Gasser – PwC, Nina Remškar – Roche, Martina Merslavič – Siemens, Soniboj Knežak – Steklarna Hrastnik in Marko Boštjančič – Telekom.

The overall winner – the most convincing example of the best business practice – will be selected among three finalists, on the basis of votes on the AmCham social media channels. Each of the three finalists will be presented by a short video, while the overall winner will receive a weekend-package trip to New York.

The projects within the motivation category are:

1. Zavarovalnica Triglav – NADGRADNJA projekta MLADI UPI

2. Simbioza Genesis, socialno podjetje – Simbioza šola

3. Skupina Helios – Helios akademija

Despite the difficult decision, as all three projects were in fact the winners, the most voters were convinced by Zavarovalnica Triglav and their project nadgradnja projekta Mladi upi, which was selected as the finalist.

This year's "active listener", whose votes were decisive in choosing the Motivation category winner, was Mr. Gregor Jamnik, director, Best Western Premier Hotel Slon.
