GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. – the Best Employer of 2013

GAZ-SYSTEM SA took first place in the Best Employers 2013 survey in the category “very large companies employing more than 1,000 workers in Poland”. The survey, conducted June-July 2013, covered 95 companies representing approximately 50,000 respondents.

The company participated in the study, conducted by Aon Hewitt, for the sixth time. In this year's survey, opinions were provided by over 1000 employees of GAZ-SYSTEM SA, which constitutes almost 50% of the company’s workforce.

The GAZ-SYSTEM SA Employee Engagement Index reached its highest level yet at 87%, which represented a 2-point increase compared to last year. This result is a whopping 39 percentage points higher than the overall average for Poland (48%).

The survey once again ranked GAZ-SYSTEM SA among the leading employers not only in Poland but also the Central and Eastern Europe region, said Jan Chadam, President of the Board, GAZ-SYSTEM S.A. Every year I stress what a major challenge it will be for company management to maintain such a high result in the future. And it turns out that year after year the level of employee satisfaction rises by a few more percentage points. For me this is a real reason to take pride in working with such a group of employees and implementing ambitious projects that are important for the entire economy.

GAZ-SYSTEM SA also won first prize in the Best Employers survey in the Central and Eastern Europe region in 2011 and 2012. Aon Hewitt will announce the results of this year’s survey for this part of the continent at the end of the year.

GAZ-SYSTEM plays a strategic role in the Polish economy. We are responsible for natural gas transmission and operate the most important gas pipelines in Poland. As part of the 2015-2025 investment programme, GAZ-SYSTEM plans to build over 2000 km of new gas pipelines in western, southern and eastern parts of Poland. Further development of the national transmission network, including the construction of new gas pipelines making part of the North-South Gas Corridor, as well as the construction of interconnections with the neighbouring countries, will strengthen Poland’s energy security and make an important contribution to the development of the European transmission system.

The Company is implementing one of the most important infrastructural projects in Poland – the Baltic Pipe project, which consists in the construction of a bidirectional offshore gas pipeline connecting Poland and Denmark and the expansion of the local transmission network.

GAZ-SYSTEM also owns Polskie LNG, the operator of the President Lech Kaczyński's LNG Terminal in Świnoujście.
