Aero’s career website, aptly named “We Make Airplanes”, was awarded by an expert jury in the 8th edition of the international competition, which evaluates the best projects in the field of HR marketing.

“We have transferred our passion for airplanes to the career site as well to reach new talents and professionals in the ‘airspace’ of the digital world. A huge thank you to all our employees who were involved in the creation. We used their real photos, authentic experiences, and most importantly their genuine passion for Aero and aircraft manufacturing,” says Luboš Tejkl, Chief People Officer, Aero. Aero has created an innovative and creative career site where aircraft are the main focus. “When you open the site, it immediately starts with an inspirational video about a childhood love of airplanes that has lasted into adulthood and become a passion,” adds Luboš Tejkl.

The Recruitment Academy Awards competition was created to inspire, educate and raise the profile of the best projects in HR marketing, employer branding and recruitment. A record number of 105 companies from the Czech Republic and Slovakia entered this year’s competition. The winners were selected by an expert jury of 32 Czech and Slovak HR professionals. The award ceremony took place at the Jatka78 theatre in Prague. LMC is involved in the creation of the Aero career website.
