Insights from companies that participated in the OWB Study
Mihail Pricop, training manager at Autonom Rent-a-Car, one of the companies that took part in the study, said that regarding the significance of work, people know what they are working for, not just to get a wage. He added that 90 employees submitted the survey for this study.

The work pressure is perceived more in the outsourcing division compared to the technology one, said Salagean about some of the findings of the research in the case of Accenture Romania.
Corina Ghiatau, organizational development manager at Orange Romania, explained that the telecom firm deploys every three years a massive internal research initiative on the stress levels of the employees.
