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.
