For managers and employees

The development of the potential of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A.’s employees takes place within a framework of a system which assumes active collaboration of persons in charge of training in particular divisions, the management and the employees in non-managerial positions. They jointly design development programmes which respond to the Company’s demand, individual needs of each employee and the preferences of the Company’s employees. Based on such assumptions, KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. implements a number of development programmes and, at the same time, continues to look for new solutions to upgrade the skills and qualifications of the employees at all levels of the organisation.


Since 2010, the Leadership Study programme based on the standard model of managerial competences development invented by KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. has been implemented. Its purpose is to enhance the leadership and organisational skills of line managers, middle management and senior executives, change attitudes, improve production performance and increase the organisational efficiency of the mines. Until 2012, approximately 344 managers from different divisions of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. participated in the programme. The Leadership Study allows for standardisation of managerial skills and sharing good practices across the Company. A similar project will be implemented in KGHM International where another programme for managerial staff called Leadership Development and Coaching is also in progress.


One of the biggest training projects implemented is the ”TENSTEP Project Management Implementation Methodology” scheduled to take place between 2011 and 2014. Its purpose is to implement a uniform standard of project management, prepare the persons implementing projects to use the standard in practice and, consequently, to apply a new approach to projects launched in KGHM. In 2012, close to 1 500 persons employed in KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. and the Group participated in the programme.


The Company also co-fi nances higher education of its employees when the field of study is consistent with the job responsibilities and the Company’s strategy. In 2012, 279 employees received such support, of whom 72% (195 persons) chose post-graduate courses. Decisions about the award of financial assistance are made by the Employee Education Committee. The Training Management Department also organised two tenders, the purpose of which was to select a contractor offering postgraduate courses in such subjects as the “Quality of Electric Energy” and “Management of the Company’s Value”. The former course attended by 20 employees of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. was organised by the AGH University of Science and Technology in Cracow and the latter, with 73 participants, by the Warsaw School of Economics.


The biggest number of employees took part in the mandatory occupational health and safety training. In 2012, the number of participants totalled 14,995.


The employees of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. also take part in various conferences and symposiums which offer opportunities for learning about the cutting-edge solutions and current business and industry trends. In 2012, 1,008 employees attended such events.
