Human capital of TAURON Group includes employees: their knowledge, experience, skills, attitudes and motivation. The future of the Group will depend on many factors, but the employees will have the greatest impact thereupon. The range of the Group’s business operations, both in terms of geography as well as competence areas, employing more than 25,500 employees, has a significant impact upon the complexity of the human capital management process.

Depending on the employee’s workplace in the Group’s value chain, human capital management and organization of personnel policy are adapted accordingly in terms of training and development, improvement of information flow, career development opportunities and ensuring competitive working conditions. Employee satisfaction surveys are conducted periodically and their results are the basis for developing and implementing action plans that aim to increase engagement and create an attractive workplace.

It is also extremely important to maintain standards with respect to compliance with the principles of ethics, respect for diversity and counteracting mobbing and discrimination at all of TAURON Group’s subsidiaries.

All activities for employees are also important due to projected demographic changes and a falling number of professionally active people. Creating jobs, TAURON Group strives to attract the best employees. In order to achieve that goal patronage classes are created with an offer tailored to the future HR needs of the Group’s subsidiaries. A number of initiatives are also undertaken that strengthen the image of TAURON Capital Group as a good and desired employer.
