It implements an integrated strategy development and rapid growth of talents, with targeted and long term career plans, involvement in important organization projects, executives mentoring as well as fast development plans for future roles. About 85% of positions are internally covered through promotions, and about 15 executives acquire roles every year in Coca‑Cola HBC Group and other countries. Digital transformation is just as important to Coca‑Cola 3E, as a leading consumer goods company that seeks to innovate, so it is constantly looking for ways to give people new reskilling and growth opportunities. All this combines with a competitive pay and benefits package that exceeds the average market.
Big emphasis is also placed on peoples wellbeing, recognition and ensuring the balance between personal and professional life.

Through innovative programs and initiatives it gives them opportunities to broaden their knowledge and skills, enhance their employability and make a dynamic start in their careers. Among them is Youth Empowered, which has already empowered more than 15,000 young people with personal and professional skills, but also RISE Management Trainee, which is celebrating 30 years of implementation this year, giving young, talented graduates the opportunity to start their professional career progress and evolve into leading company positions.
