The Group takes care to promote employee competency development through the Training Management System. By managing the employee training and development area the Company of improves the effectiveness of its training programmes and efficiently calculates and controls funds allocated to employee development.

The Group has Training Officers to analyse training needs in order to precisely select development programmes suitable for individual employees. As the PGNiG Group’s subsidiaries are engaged in a wide range of business activities and employees’ knowledge in key fields needs to be kept up-to-date, it is up to each subsidiary to determine the type and extent of their staff training. 

Employees develop their skills through internal and external training. There are also various projects that employees carry out as part of the Group’s broad operations. Resolving unique issues relating to long-term contracts is perceived by employees as the quickest route towards professional development.

Investment in qualified staff from the date of hire is key as it enhances professional skills of the entire team.
