Friday, 10 September, 2021
KGHM ZANAM honoured with a statuette symbolising the "Employee Friendly Employer" certificate - the award, granted by NSZZ Solidarność, was presented to the Management Board of the Company by the President of the Republic of Poland, Andrzej Duda.
"The fact that a company from the KGHM Group has received this certificate is a special distinction. All the more so as last year's winner was the Polkowice-Sieroszowice mine department of KGHM. I am pleased that our work for employees is valued by the trade unions. Our successes are due, among others, to good management and partner relations with the crew", said Marcin Chludziński, President of the Management Board of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A.
Bernard Cichocki, President of KGHM ZANAM, added that one of the key objectives of the company in terms of human resources policy is to maintain partner relations between the employee and the employer. "Obtaining the certificate during the pandemic is of particular importance to us. We have managed to maintain the same number of employees during this difficult period. On top of this, we have increased wages thanks to the good financial situation. In the future, we plan to continue the pro-employee initiatives implemented so far," says Bernard Cichocki.
KGHM ZANAM is one of the largest Polish manufacturers of machines and devices for the mining sector. The Company also produces equipment used in cargo shipping systems, transportation units, and open pit mines. The company is also a producer of rock and iron castings.
KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. employs over 18 thousand people, and the entire Group employs over 34 thousand people. The company is one of the largest employers in Poland. For the Management Board of the copper giant, the priority is the safety and health of employees. The company also carries out numerous pro-health and pro-social programmes.
The competition is organised by NSZZ "Solidarność" under the honorary patronage of the President of the Republic of Poland.
