From the 2015 to the 2019, according to the Instat data, unemployment in Albania has dropped from 17% to 11,5%, thanks to many companies that have increased their number of employees in this period of time by offering more employment.
So what are the companies that offer more jobs? TV Scan, the Albanian television channel that deals mainly with economic news, has published the list of 10 largest companies - of all sectors of the economy - in terms of employees based on data published by the Directorate General for Taxes.
The first place is held by the company operating in the services sector "Albania Marketing Service" (also called "Teleperfomance Albania") which in the Land of Eagles is mostly known as a company-call center and offers employment to 2773 people.
Behind it there is "Albaco Shoes", a factory that produces leather shoes in Albania and that includes 2159 employees. Another marketing company, "Albacall", closes the podium, where 1587 people work.
Looking at the ranking, we note that the call center sector and the footwear and textile sector are dominating the employment market in recent years.
