Why is it essential that businesses work with young talents already in kindergarten and primary schools? Businesses are drivers of societal change, often long before politicians and governments, and the successful ones always start with education at the earliest stage. Why do businesses do it, what do they have out of it and how is it linked to their corporate strategy? 

These and many other questions were answered during the event organised by AmCham Finance Committee on May 23. Five panelists - representatives of AmCham member companies - talked about projects into which is their company investing money and time.

Legal Aspects of Home Office

11.05.2017, Marketplace

Working from home (the so-called “home office”) has become an increasingly popular form of
income-earning activity based on employment among employees, since it represents a more flexible and sometimes even more efficient method of cooperation between the employee and the employer. The employee does not have to come to the office on a daily basis but (s)he may organize his/her work tasks around his/her own time schedule and capacity, which will allow him/her to achieve a better balance between his/her work and private life (work/life balance). If the home office regime is set up appropriately, it may bring a number of advantages for the employer, such as economy of operation costs, work efficiency growth and, last but not least, an increase in the motivation and long-term satisfaction of employees.
