    Supervisory Board

    Executive Board

    The mission of Żabka Group is to create value by making people’s lives easier

    Our values define what we want to be and how we want to act. They form a coherent and ordered system of thoughts, attitudes and behaviors, which allows us to build a team guided by the same principles.

    Ambition

    I have dreams that I bring to life by setting ambitious goals for myself. The persistent pursuit of these goals makes me grow as a person and creates greater shared value. This way, I am able to leave behind something lasting.

    Openness

    I am an open-minded person because I have the courage and willingness to go beyond the usual schemes. With a positive attitude I see the world around me in a broad perspective. In difficult situations, I can put aside my ego and accept defeat. Out of respect for the other person, in mutual relations, I can listen with interest and empathy, I believe in good intentions and accept differences.

    Responsibility

    Every day I build a better Żabka for my employees, co-workers, business partners and franchisees. I take actions and decisions that I am proud of. I demand full accountability from myself and support the accountability of others.

    Credibility

    I am dependable in the eyes of employees, co-workers, franchisees and customers. I follow rules at my work and do not avoid communicating difficulties. I am authentic by aligning my intentions, values and actions. I fulfil my commitments to others, and if I cannot fulfil them, I honestly and proactively communicate this. In collaboration and dialogue with others, I show respect while openly communicating expected goals.

    What unites us above all are our corporate values, which are the foundation of our actions.  We discovered and chose them together, nobody imposed them on us, so they are naturally part of our daily work, decisions and processes. It is important to us that everyone who joins our company can share their personal perspective:
