Cognifide wins The Force of Attraction in Poland

22 November 2017Magdalena Owsiana

The Force of Attraction awards are hotly contested. They are run by Poland’s leading business newspaper, Business Pulse, and focus on the best of the best in recruitment and employee branding. Last year we won The Magnet Award for our candidate-friendly recruitment process. We were thrilled to join an elite group of the best Polish employers and to see that the efforts of our technical and HR recruiters are truly appreciated.

This year we’ve added another Force of Attraction award to our trophy cabinet. And it doesn’t get any better than this! For the first time ever, the judges introduced a Grand Prix, or Master Champion trophy and, yes, you guessed it, that’s us.

So what have we done to earn this fantastic accolade? In 2017 we submitted a total of five initiatives for awards. All of them are important to us in helping us to build our workplace and stay true to our culture and values. One example is our Career Start Up internship program which gives young people the opportunity to take their first steps in a professional environment.

During their internship (and it was 27 people this year) they are supported by dedicated mentors and learn how to mix theory with business practice. Our approach was really appreciated by the jury which named Career Start Up one of the best campaigns for the Millennial generation. Congratulations to all colleagues involved in the recruitment and mentoring. You rock!

Other initiatives that we shared with the judges touch several different areas of HR and Employee Branding:

  • Our wonderful induction program that helps starters to begin their new job smoothly, thanks to two weeks of workshop and presentations run by our experienced employees.
  • Our talent management program which helps us to share our knowledge both internally and externally and to seize the opportunity to develop our skills.
  • The Feedbucket application, developed in 2016 and inspired by Agile and Management 3.0 ideas, which supports us in giving weekly feedback to our colleagues.
  • And last but not least, our Feel Good @Cognifide program that promotes well-being and work-life balance and supports our values.

The Master Champion accolade is the culmination of all of these initiatives and the judges commented particularly on our strategic and complex approach. We’re super proud to have won it. Not least because it belongs to us all - every single Cognifider. We all play a part in creating and shaping the workplace. We care deeply about team work, communication, inclusion and diversity. We share our knowledge and support our social environment. We put positive energy and huge passion into building Cognifide as a great workplace. And we are very proud that it has been recognised and appreciated.
