Respect for the dignity of every person, regardless of the differences between us, is the basis of all the operating policies in force in our company. Our work is based on warm-heartedness when performing duties and respect for any kind of diversity. We understand that to succeed in business, it is also necessary to be able to build an inclusive workplace and ensure space for discussion. We constantly develop and strengthen the organizational culture based on openness, ethical values and kindness to others.
In light of the rapid changes and uncertainty in the reality around us, we particularly need an understanding of the role of sustainable leadership. What is also important to us is the ability to cooperate and support each other in achieving set goals. We make efforts to build agreement and unlock the potential of intergeneration teams.
Collaboration in Diversity
PZU is set to develop competences in the effective use of the potential brought to the organization by its diverse teams. It is just one of a number of initiatives aimed at supporting diversified growth and building an inspiring and accountable workplace (#potential_within_teams). Diversity applies not only to gender, age or origin, but also to individual styles of action, communication and work. In 2021, a diversity management module was included in the scope of basic training for newly appointed managers. A new e-learning course “Collaboration in Diversity” has been prepared for all employees, the purpose of which is to improve the participants’ understanding of interpersonal differences, especially between generations, in order to be able to engage in effective collaboration within diverse teams.
ESG goals in the annual objectives set for the management team
In 2021, in PZU and PZU Życie, the directors responsible for the pursuit of the ESG strategy saw, for the first time ever, the Group’s ESG goals included in their annual objectives. The degree of attainment of these goals translates into the value of variable compensation to be received by these directors. Owing to the setting of the ESG goals, the whole organization is involved in the pursuit of the ESG strategy. Sustainable development has been embedded into the company’s operating endeavors.
The adopted policies and documents in PZU provide equal opportunities to employees for development, improvement of skills and promotions. The remuneration system depends on the type of the work performed, the value of the position for the company, the employees’ competences, required skills, job appraisal and market remuneration levels. The company prevents discretion as regards remuneration, among others through setting transparent, non-discriminatory fixed compensation levels for the same type of work or work with the same value. The value of the Gender Pay Gap ratio, showing the difference between salaries received by men and women, is a confirmation of equal treatment and the absence of discrimination based on gender. Average base salary ratio of women to men in 2021 for all employees was 96 percent.
European Sustainability Week
In 2021 an educational campaign was organized to coincide with the European Sustainability Week. For 5 consecutive days, employees received a dose of knowledge on the Intranet portal. Educational materials were read by more than 1,000 employees. The Sustainability Week was accompanied by a contest entitled “SDG (Sustainable Development Goals) Challenge 2021”, or how PZU may stimulate sustainable development?”, in which employees were encouraged to come up with innovative business ideas. The contest was carried out via the Idea Generator, a platform for the exchange of ideas and comments by PZU Group employees. In this edition of the contest, ideas were sought for business initiatives which would support the execution of three selected Sustainable Development Goals.
