THIS IS ERICSSON HELLAS:
The company operates in Greece as of 1960. Ericsson Hellas employs more than 280 highly educated employees and is the hub for the South East Mediterranean operations (Greece, Cyprus, Israel, Malta and Albania) where we have helped build and expand the telecom market, increasing thus these countries’ competitiveness and productivity and leading the way towards sustainable growth.
Particularly in Greece: Ericsson has the largest telecom market share, supplying innovative solutions and services to the largest telecom operators in the country –mobile and fixed telecommunications (OTE, Tellas, HoL, On Telecoms, Vivodi, Cosmote, Wind, Q-Telecom and Vodafone)– as well as the Metropolitan Area Networks’ infrastructure in large municipalities throughout the country. Having setup the first mobile networks in the country, Ericsson has contributed more than any other supplier in bringing the benefits of telecommunications to more Greek people, wherever they are and whenever they want to communicate for work, personal relations or simply for fun.
Next, ‘Smart Cities’: In tomorrow’s world, where broadband networks will be the backbone of our smart cities where not only people but also our homes, cars, hospitals and everything else around us will be connected, Ericsson is committed to continue working with our customers and partners and expanding the borders of telecommunications for the benefit of the citizens, the public administration, the environment and the society as a whole.

Our annual employee survey shows that 90% of our employees feel the company´s core values are relevant to them. This attitude contributes to our company culture.
