What does life look like at the reception desk of the Prague headquarters for the Miton investment group – a company that is, in its own words, one big investment circus? This time around in our series of interviews with receptionists, we’ve headed out to this “big tent” infused with a relaxed family atmosphere.
Values, visions, plans. Every company tries to present them, but not everybody is able to project them in such a magnificent way as Nexen Tire. The stormy waves, giant projections of Prince of Persia or the dancer's musculature on a 30-meter LCD display in the public lobby give you a surrealistic impression.
Forget about those old-school plastic workplace entry cards! At its headquarters in Prague’s Radlice district, the bank ČSOB is now using biometric data in their place. They’re identifying employees based on fingerprints or blood-vessel scans. In the past, they also tested the use of face-recognition cameras.
LMC operates the most famous job portals - Jobs.cz a Prace.cz. Once in a while people come and ask the receptionists to find them a job. But most of the time the receptionists take care of their colleagues. What makes them angry? And why is it a bigger deal when the tearista goes on vacation than when management leaves?
