Social benefits

Bank Millennium Group employees are offered the same social and financial benefits regardless of the type of the employment agreement (for a definite/indefinite term) and the working time (part-time/full-time). The amount and scope of benefits depends on the employee’s life and financial situation. A private medical care plan is offered to employees employed for at least one half of a full time equivalent. The range of the plan varies for different positions.  [GRI 401-2]

Medical Care +

Since 2006, Bank Millennium has been cooperating with the ENEL-MED medical center. The center offers access to skilled medical personnel and contemporary diagnostic facilities to the employees of the Bank’s Group. The private medical care plan allows all the employees equally to have access to basic and specialist medical consultations, detailed diagnostic tests and prevention programs.

Additionally, there is an ENEL-MED medical practice operating at the Bank Millennium Head Office in Warsaw, offering basic medical care and outpatient assistance. Employees of the Bank’s Head Office in Warsaw may quickly and easily check their health condition.

In the interest of the health not only of its employees, but also members of their families, Bank Millennium negotiated as part of the medical agreement preferential prices for medical packages for the spouses, life partners and children up to 26 years of age. The scope of medical packages makes it possible to effectively carry out both health prevention programmes, and specialist treatment in the case of sudden illness.

The preferential prices of medical care plans have also been negotiated for retiring employees and for parents of the employees within the framework of the Senior program.

Promoting healthy lifestyle

    Millennium Rhythm project. During the concerts, employees were able to rest on deckchairs listening to live instrumental music.
