The Employee Volunteering Programme, which has been in place at the Company for ten years now, is steadily gaining in popularity among the employees, who engage in charity projects.
The ORLEN Employee Volunteering Programme brings together thousands of our employees who share common values and positive ideas. The Programme builds mutual relations, promotes teamwork, and inspires creativity by developing the interests and passions of employees.
In 2014, training trips involved CSR activities aimed at providing support to those who need it most. The Company Volunteers engaged in campaigns for the benefit of orphanages and education and care centres: they built playgrounds for children raised in foster family group homes, carried out repair and refurbishment work, and organised attractive events for the wards of such institutions. The Company also developed its seasonal projects, including our flagship initiative ‘Become a Santa Claus’ Helper – Make Someone’s Dreams Come True’. The Employee Volunteering Programme implemented by the Company for the past ten years is steadily gaining in popularity among the staff, who are more and more active in implementing their own projects to the benefit of their local community.
In 2015, the Programme will take new shape, based on three pillars: the grant competition (under which the Company will grant money to employees for the purpose of delivering their own socially-oriented projects), regular volunteering campaigns organised by PKN ORLEN, and group integration through charity projects.
