Annual report 2012

Structure of employees

The Telekom Slovenije Group had 4,724 employees as at 31 December 2012. Slovenian companies accounted for 3,616 of those employees, while companies abroad accounted for 1,108. The number of employees was down by a total of 36 or 0.8 %. Telekom Slovenije recorded 98 new hires, primarily in contact centres and Telekom centres, where student help was replaced by those hired. The reasons for 120 terminations of employment were primarily mutually agreed redundancies and retirements.

The majority of employees (98 %) have signed an employment contract on the basis of the collective agreement or an employment contract that does not define specific requirements. The remaining 2 % of employees are primarily management staff with contracts outside the collective agreement system. The number of such contracts was down on the previous year.

Retiring Telekom Slovenije Group employees are entitled to severance pay in accordance with valid legislation and the provisions of the collective agreement, where it applies. Telekom Slovenije has no special pre-retirement training programmes for employees, while the average age of employees at the majority of other companies is so low that such programmes are not required.

Employees by type of employment and gender

The majority of employees in the Telekom Slovenije Group are employed permanently (83.6 %), while a smaller portion is employed for a fixed period of time (16.4 %). Slovenian companies primarily employ workers for a fixed period of time to cover absences or temporary increases in the work load. Of a total of 2,751 employees at Telekom Slovenije as at 31 December 2012, 124 were employed for a fixed period of time. More employees are employed for a fixed period of time at companies abroad than in Slovenia, which is a reflection of the legislation of the country in question and the employment policy of the company.

Men account for 66% of all employees, while women account for 34 %. The gender structure differs from company to company, depending on the activity of individual companies. Men are prevalent at companies in Slovenia, while the gender ratio is almost equal at companies abroad.

The majority of the Group’s employees were employed full time (97.4 %), with a smaller proportion of part-time workers (2.6 %). 


Number of employees with regard to the indicator of FTE 

The Telekom Slovenije Group monitors the FTE (full-time equivalent) indicator, which represents the number of employees based on hours. All worked and paid hours charged to the Company are divided by the planned annual number of hours. In this way, the Group monitors FTEs for employees, students and temporary workers hired through employment agencies.

Employee turnover

Employee turnover at companies in Slovenia was 4.5 % in 2012. 


Educational structure of employees

The number of Group employees with education levels I to IV is decreasing, while the proportion of employees with level V education is increasing. The reason lies primarily in employment at contact centres and Telekom centres.


Employment of disabled persons

There were 131 disabled persons of various disability levels working in the Group at the end of the year. Of those persons, 52 % are full-time workers, while 48 % are part-time workers. The majority of companies in Slovenia regularly exceed the legally prescribe quota of disabled persons as the result of efforts to further facilitate the employment of disabled employees. The quota for the information and communications sector is 2 %, while the quota for the construction sector is 3 %. Companies were therefore entitled to compensation in the amount of 25 % of the minimum monthly wage for each disabled employee over the prescribed quota. Companies abroad do not have a compensation system for exceeding the quota of disabled persons.
