Letisko M.R.Štefánika – Airport Bratislava, a.s. (BTS), Slovakia

Sector: Aviation

Letisko M.R.Štefánika – Airport Bratislava, a.s. (BTS) owns and runs BTS Aero International Airport in Bratislava which is the largest of the five airports in Slovakia with more than 550 employees.
As demand for passenger and cargo air transport increases, many airports face challenges with staffing capacity and how to utilise existing personnel more efficiently. BTS was no different and asked Kreston Slovakia to review its operations and work out how best to deploy its employees’ skills across multiple areas.

This would also require creating new employment contracts which needed collective agreement with the various labour unions involved.

Eva Nemšáková, partner at Kreston Slovakia co-led the team with Július Činčala. They analysed the processes across operational departments and carried out a complete review of the 550+ employment contracts. They then created a new work structure, combining workloads and re-organising shift arrangements along with proposed new salary levels. The whole project also required legal services relating to the workforce changes and legal advice on negotiating the collective agreement with the union

“We were impressed with Kreston Slovakia’s professional approach and the expertise of the team, which was reflected in the quality of the deliverables, the satisfaction of our employees with the new employment contracts and how quickly the collective bargaining agreement with the unions was concluded. We are extremely pleased to have gained a strong partner in Kreston Slovakia, particularly in the area of legal representation and advice.”
