EDPR awarded best place to work in 2013 in Poland

The award highlights companies who have made their business environment a truly enjoyable workplace.

Great Place to Work® has recently named EDP Renewables Poland the best place to work in 2013. The award granted was in the category of companies with fewer than 50 employees.

Following a study of organizational culture which analyzed equal opportunities, flexibility, integrity and working environment, among other variables, the company was awarded the top score in the Central European country.

In response to the award, EDPR CEO João Manso Neto stated, “This is an extremely important achievement for the company, which has been operating in Poland since 2007. EDP Renewables puts its human capital above all else; we believe that having the best professionals and a pleasant working environment is key to the company’s positive performance”.

This is an excellent result taking into account that 2/3 of the evaluation was based on an external survey (Trust Index) sent to all employees and 1/3 on a culture audit. To the question of What makes EDPR Polska a Great Place to Work, the employees’ comments were related to working conditions (environmental/atmosphere/colleagues), interest in the business (helps expand and develop the Polish economy); development opportunities (training) as well as good benefits (medical health insurance, social package).

“This is not the first award of its kind that we have received, and that motivates us even more to continue to advance in the same direction.” added Manso Neto.
