Emitel S.A. was awarded the title of Trustworthy Employer in the Safety category, which is yet another distinction won by the company for its focus on employees and social policy in national competitions. The new title will be added to other prizes and accolades won by Emitel, including two Reliable Employer titles, the title of an Employer Favourable to Employees, as well as Employer Favourable to Employees Aged 50+.

Out of concern for the safety of the company’s employees, Emitel organises training courses teaching them safe driving techniques, equips workplaces with automatic defibrillators and blood pressure measuring stations, trains employees in first aid, finances flu and tick-borne encephalitis vaccinations, conducts educational campaigns by organising OHS Weeks and publishing OHS Bulletins.

“All our activities in the field of employee safety are aimed at every age group, which fits well with the idea that taking care of health and safety at the very beginning of one’s professional career gives one a better chance to safely reach the finish line. The fact that Emitel employees share the opinion of the Trustworthy Employer competition jury is evidenced by the average tenure in our company, which amounts to 19 years”, said Aleksander Skołożyński, Member of the Management Board of Emitel S.A.

The company offers its employees attractive employment conditions and development opportunities, particularly in its current areas of activity – “projects of the future” such as building smart cities and the Internet of Things. These are projects that create space for unleashing creativity and innovation of employees, who can turn their curiosity of the world into concrete actions and projects.

“We appreciate and respect the talent and commitment of our employees, making every effort to make full use of their potential. We attach great importance to the quality equipment used by our employees working at heights, as well as to the relevant procedures and proper training courses observed and used by all of our workers. We install equipment increasing driving safety in our company vehicles”, says Aleksander Skołożyński.

The Trustworthy Employer Competition is an initiative proposed by the Polish Chamber of Commerce and the “Poland: Now” Polish Promotional Programme Foundation. The award has been presented for 9 years now. Its main objective is promoting responsible labour and social policies, in line with European standards among employers. The title is given to institutions which use effective and efficient solutions in their labour policies, taking into account the professional development of their staff and ensuring their rights.
