Development At Full Throttle

KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. is trying to align its actions aimed at the development of people to the needs of both the organisation and the employees. In 2012, the total spending on training amounted to PLN 11.5m, and the number of training participants approximated 30,000 i.e. was 2,000 higher than a year before. The development of employees is a necessary precondition for the development of the Company, therefore investments in people are equally important to us as investments in the infrastructure.


The employee development policy is strictly associated with the development strategy of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. and the strategy of the Social Capital Management System. Its overall objective is to invest in the development of human capital, with emphasis on adequate return on investments and development of an efficiency culture and knowledge-sharing. The key to success is to improve the qualifications of employees in the context of anticipated organisational and technological changes which occur as a result of the Company’s globalisation. Development is achieved thanks to participation in training courses and conferences, higher education and postgraduate programmes and through project work. The educational projects implemented in 2012 focused on the development of employees and students – as the potential human resources for the Company – as well as on upgrading professional skills of secondary school students. Additionally, the tools used for the purpose of development management in KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. have been unified, in order to allow for better identification of educational needs and effective planning of the development programmes. The average cost of training per one employee in 2012 amounted to PLN 378.
