By the decision of the Jury of the 9th edition of the Competition, Emitel has won the Trustworthy Employer title in the “Internship Programmes” category. The competition is organised by the Polish Chamber of Commerce. The award was presented yesterday during a ceremonial gala in Warsaw.

Emitel received an award for its internship programme for secondary school and technical university students, linked to the company’s core business. The programme is addressed to graduates and students of the final years of technical studies related to telecommunications and broadcasting. The internship programmes available at Emitel provide opportunities for future potential employees to learn about the specific nature of work and to get hands-on experience with specific tasks.

“The internship programs offered by Emitel are one of the best ways to get to know the company and to approach the competence areas in which a future potential employee would like to develop from a practical standpoint. The internship programme is not only about shadowing other employees or performing the simplest jobs – instead, we entrust our interns with actual tasks that they carry out with the support of a mentor, but they are fully responsible for their performance”, says Jerzy Godek, Director of the Technology Division and Member of the Management Board of Emitel S.A.

Participants of the internship programmes at Emitel have the opportunity to have a direct closer look at the functioning of the company, receive support from a dedicated internship supervisor and to get in touch with experts employed in our company, who can offer their support in the scope of their skills and knowledge, which we believe constitutes a necessary foundation for the future careers of our interns. Due to the fact that our interns are usually students nearing their graduation, the company offers a flexible approach and takes into account their individual needs, adjusting the internship schedule to their expectations and capabilities. The internship takes place on the basis of a fully paid commission contract. In addition, the company fully covers all training and qualifications required for the intern to perform a given professional role and carry out all the necessary tasks.

The “Trustworthy Employer” competition is based on an idea initiated in 2009 by the Polish Chamber of Commerce and the “Poland: Now” Polish Promotional Programme Foundation. The main aim of the competition is to recognise and promote responsible policy in the area of human capital management. This year, seven awards were presented, received by Żabka, PwC, Polish Air Navigation Services Agency, PGE and Poczta Polska. In addition, two journalists received special distinctions: Anna Popek from Telewizja Polska S.A. and Michał Dobrołowicz from RMF FM.

The title of Trustworthy Employer is awarded to organisations that offer modern, interesting and effective solutions to employees in the field of human resources, taking into account their professional development and protection of their rights. Awards are granted in several categories: internship programmes, volunteering, motivation, education, health, safety and accessible companies.
