    Good practices

    We create a trustworthy organisation of people committed to building business value in a sustainable way. This means continuous improvement in three areas. These are: 

    We want all employee and associate groups to know that our organisation is a dream place for each and every one of them and that their individuality is valued.

    Look how great it is!

    We are a unique place to work that suits unique people. Working at Żabka Group is worth it, because it’s more than just a ‘normal job’. It’s just great here.

    Future leaders

    Żabka Polska as a strong and seasoned organisation has identified four company values which drive its activities. One of those values is ambition.

    We strive to become stronger and smarter every day. However, we define ambition as a means to nurture the development of specialists and leaders and to encourage personal growth of our employees and partners. 

    We aspire to create the best possible growth conditions on the market and to retain professionals on every rung of their career ladders.

    Our first step towards achieving this ambition was to establish Żabka Academy in 2016, which was awarded ‘Pracodawca godny zaufania’, an award given employers in recognition of their reliability, in the category of education.  But that was just the beginning. We are committed to developing the Academy as a modern institution which continues to expand our employees’ future work skills and which purposefully manages mentoring programmes, internships as well as upskilling and reskilling programmes. Where possible, we offer in-house training, although if circumstances warrant cooperation,  we are happy to collaborate with the top training organisations both in Poland and abroad.

    For example, we joined forces with Egon Zehnder, a world-class management consulting company. Each year we cooperatively launch the following editions of our senior leader development programme. The programme, aimed at our most experienced leaders, involves carefully constructed diagnostic tools, which help to create individual development programmes. Our most talented employees get a chance to increase their competencies at top training programmes offered by Harvard University, ISEAD, Stanford University, Yale University and other….

    Senior leader development programme represents but a fraction of our efforts to continuously help Żabka leaders in their professional growth. The initiatives start much earlier, when our employees transit from specialist to their managerial positions (e.g. basic management programmes  ‘Wczoraj kolega, dziś przełożony’). The Academy, then, continues to guide them through the next stages of managerial skills development and career advancement in Żabka. As a result nearly half of Żabka managers have been promoted internally, having completed the manager initiation pathway step by step. Accordingly, employee engagement surveys by Gallup show that our leaders value the educational opportunities as offered by Żabka highly. 

    Moreover, activities of the Żabka Academy are not limited to enhancing management qualifications alone. For instance, the Academy coordinates onboarding meetings, which promote in-company familiarity and effective teamwork among junior employees. Also, an attractive system of student internships (the Polish Business Roundtable ranks us second among such career programmes) helps us to entice young high-class specialists and share the responsibility for developing a generation of young employees who have just entered the labour market.

    In Żabka, we think global, we act local. For that reason English language learning programmes are an important part of the Academy’s curriculum, as speaking a foreign language is becoming a more and more essential skill, which will surely prove useful in the course of ambitious international projects Żabka co-creates. 

    Development constitutes and drives our great ambitions, consequently we consider it a priority and an intrinsic part of our company. A community development initiative #GROW, which brings together all those interested in personal development of self and Żabka co-workers, testifies to that clearly.

    As an organisation we welcome people who live and breathe changes, development and ambition. We can safely promise you, you will have it aplenty!
