The importance of the in-depth insight into the staff and their potential regardless the company’s size is annually emphasized by the competition Zlata nit (Golden Thread). This is a media-research project of the newspaper Dnevnik that through the selection of the best employers seeks out the best practice examples in the area of employment in Slovenia.
The competition Zlata nit 2014 includes 83 companies, of which 43 are small enterprises (with up to 50 employees), 28 are medium-sized enterprises (up to 250 employees), and 12 are large businesses. These companies were classified according to size on the basis of the data from 2013 provided by GVIN. This was the first participation in the competition of best employers for 17 companies, and the majority of them are fast-growing not only in performance of business but also in the number of employees.

Ten enterprises have participated at the Zlata nit since its beginning, thus this is the eighth time. Among them are BDO Revizija, the Gazela-awarded fast-growing companies Bisnode, Blažič robni trakovi, Četrta pot, Elvez, Infotehna, Interblock (former Elektronček), and Mimovrste, and also MDM and Microsoft.
