Responsible employer

KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. belongs to the group of most desired employers in Poland, as it guarantees safety and stability of employment, attractive remuneration and a comprehensive social package. This has been confirmed by the “Ideal Employer” award which the Company received in 2010 in the Universum Professional Survey ranking. In 2011, in the same ranking, in the “Engineering” category, the Company was ranked second.

 

Since the beginning of its activities, people – experienced management and highly qualified employees – have been one of the most important assets of the Company. The key objective of the Company’s activities related to human resource management is ensuring the required number of employees in certain occupation groups and with certain qualifications, as well as that they use their potential in the best way.
 

Most valuable social capital

In order to properly use the competencies and knowledge of employees, the Social Potential Management System has been set up at the Company. Including the education and development system, career planning and competence management, as well as recruitment and adaptation, it supports the implementation of the Company’s business strategy.
 

The Social Potential Management System (SPMS) is aimed at ensuring that each employee:

  • is a highly-qualified professional,
  • works in an atmosphere of openness, cooperation, politeness and fairness,
  • co-participates in setting the organisational standards, values and culture.
     
For the last 50 years the copper corporation has not only been one of the leaders in the Polish economy and since 1997 – one of the largest companies quoted on the Warsaw Stock Exchange, but also a firm closely bound to its region, focused on local activities, caring for its employees and the environment in which it functions. Its impact on the neighbourhood is significant, as the Company – with over 18.5 thousand employees – is the largest employer in Lower Silesia, and the whole KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. Group employs an additional 12.5 thousand people. KGHM is also the largest taxpayer in the region.

From the beginning of its operations KGHM took actions which today would certainly be considered as resulting from its corporate social responsibility policy. These will be crowned by the CSR strategy (more information on the strategy is presented in Chapter III), which comprehensively describes the 50 years of experience and contemporary challenges which modern enterprises have to face.
