All of our employees receive a contract for an indefinite period after a probation period of 6 months”, says Miloš Davidović, Director of Human Resources in Company Yazaki Srbija.

Within the factory in Šabac a training center is being build and it will be open in June”, said Davidović and adds “by the end of the year we will train and employ over 700 people, while our long-term goal is 1,700 employees by the end of 2019.”
