The award was presented during a press conference, which served to sum up the first implementation stage of the Employee Capital Plans Programme, which encompassed the largest enterprises. Paweł Borys, President of the Management Board of the Polish Development Fund, handed them to representatives of four companies: Emitel, Budimex, EY Polska and Komfort. 

Promoting retirement savings is one of the key social challenges we face today. In a situation where a relatively small group of Poles save for their retirement, creating conditions that are conducive to doing so becomes paramount. The Employee Capital Plans are a perfect solution for this challenge, and the employers have an opportunity to play an important role in promoting the programme.

We took the implementation of the Employee Capital Plans seriously. First of all, we believe that the programme itself is very good and beneficial for the employees. Apart from that, Emitel’s operations are characterised by corporate social responsibility and sustainable development principles. What is more, this programme can also serve as a way to unleash new developmental stimuli in the Polish economy. In the process of implementing the Employee Capital Plans, we focused on broad and open internal communication and invited our employees to choose the institutions that would manage the funds. This allowed us to address many doubts and concerns right from the get-go”, said Andrzej J. Kozłowski, President of the Management Board of Emitel S.A.

At Emitel, more than 70% of all employees decided to participate in the Employee Capital Plans Programme. This means that the programme enjoys trust of our employees from the very start”, Andrzej J. Kozłowski added. 

Emitel has won numerous awards and distinctions in the field of human capital management. Recently, the company has won the “Investor in Human Capital” emblem, awarded for the second consecutive time by the Digital Knowledge Observatory Foundation. This year, the company has also received the Employee-Friendly Employer title, presented by the National Committee of the NSZZ “Solidarność” trade union with honorary patronage of the President of the Republic of Poland.

For the second consecutive time, Emitel has won the “Investor in Human Capital” emblem. The programme has been run since 2006 by the Digital Knowledge Observatory Foundation.

The aim of the programme, addressed to companies and institutions operating in Poland, is to continuously improve the level of human resources management, promoting the importance of investing in human capital, as well as accumulate knowledge about employers’ practices and initiatives.

Awarding us the ‘Investor in Human Capital’ emblem means that we set a very high bar for ourselves – once again, we joined the ranks of Laureates, who meet the highest standards, thanks to Emitel’s HR policy. It is also worth pointing out that the ‘Investor in Human Capital’ Programme is based entirely on the opinions about the employer held and shared by the employees,” said Andrzej J. Kozłowski, President of the Management Board of Emitel S.A.

The “Investor in Human Capital” emblem is a distinction wholly based on the Employees’ power of voice and recommendations. The other winners of this year’s edition of the programme were Man, Alexander Mann Solutions, Dachser, Link 4, NetWorkS, Bricoman, Caparol, Bocian Pożyczki, Döhler and T-Mobile.

The “Investor in Human Capital” Programme is run under the patronage of the most important public and private institutions. The set of surveys, which was developed over the course of many years, pays attention to the opinions of employees on the most important areas of the organisation’s operations. The programme focuses on encouraging employers to pay attention to the needs of their employees and on supporting companies in creating friendly workplaces.

Currently, the programme is based on employee satisfaction and engagement surveys. In the era of an employee job market, taking a closer look at issues related to the willingness of the staff to engage in everyday duties – as well as to express their positive opinions about the employees – becomes a crucial thing to do.
