Social benefits

[GRI 401-2] Bank Millennium Group employees are offered the same social and financial benefits regardless of the type of employment agreement (for a fixed/unspecified term) and working time (part-time/full-time). The amount and scope of benefits depend 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.

The Bylaws of the Company Social Benefit Fund regulate the Bank’s social activity. According to these Bylaws, the Bank pursues the following initiatives:

  • providing repayable assistance for housing purposes in the form of home loans,
  • conducting cultural, sporting, recreational and tourist activity,
  • organizing events and group meetings, etc.,
  • providing material or financial assistance,
  • providing financial assistance in individual events of chance, a particularly difficult financial, family or life situation (financial assistance that does not have to be repaid).

Companies tap into the social benefits offered by the Bank but they finance it using their own Social Benefits Funds.

The private medical care plan allows all the Group employees equally to have access to basic and specialist medical consultations, detailed diagnostic tests and prevention programs. Additionally, there is a medical practice operating at the Bank Millennium Head Office in Warsaw, offering basic medical care and outpatient assistance.

Every autumn, a nationwide campaign of vaccination against influenza is conducted with the participation of the Bank’s medical partners. Vaccines are organized at the Bank’s Head Office and in medical centers in Poland’s other cities.

Bank Millennium is implementing the Millennium Active Zone program aimed at promoting physical activity among employees and developing knowledge about healthy lifestyle.
