Together with the “Rak’n’Roll” Foundation and “Testicle Lords,” Polenergia Fotowoltaika participates in a nationwide campaign reminding about regular preventive examinations. Employees of Polenergia Fotowoltaika can take advantage of “U Day,” an additional day off to check their health and undergo examinations. In particular, preventive examinations such as breast and testicular ultrasound and cytology are recommended.
In Poland, over 20% of working individuals feel stressed every day. This state is very dangerous for health and significantly reduces the quality of life. In response to this issue, Polenergia introduced regular training sessions titled “Master Stress and Regain Control.” These sessions are conducted by Szymon Bobowski, an experienced trainer specializing in soft skills development. During the training, participants can assess their stress level and learn about methods such as the safe place technique, breathing techniques, and neuromuscular techniques. Additionally, they can learn how to reduce stress temporarily and permanently and calm the mind and body.
Psychological challenges are faced by both adults and children in today’s world. To meet the needs of working parents in the Polenergia Group, together with the Mazovian Neuropsychiatry Center, we organized weekly psychoeducational workshops for parents on children’s mental health. The sessions took place over four months and were well-received by parents.
Caring for the health of Polenergia’s employees, we also prioritize their safety and workplace hygiene. Therefore, regular occupational health and safety (OHS) training sessions are organized. In the Nowa Sarzyna Cogeneration Plant, employees underwent training to improve their skills in using portable firefighting equipment and using isolating breathing apparatus. Periodic OHS meetings and fire evacuation drills with the participation of fire brigade units are also conducted.
Before the holidays, employees had the opportunity to participate in a webinar titled “First Aid – How to Survive Vacation?” During this webinar, they could review basic first aid principles. The holiday season is a time for relaxation, but it’s essential not to forget recommended emergency procedures. Participation in the webinar helped participants refresh their knowledge in this area. Subsequently, from October to December, detailed first aid training sessions were organized, where participants learned how to assist a person who loses consciousness. Five stationary first aid training sessions took place, involving approximately 50 Polenergia employees in total.
In addition, in 2023, four webinars were held to discuss significant health issues.
1) In April, a webinar organized by two specialists from the Mazovian Neuropsychiatry Center addressed general issues related to the disease of depression. Polenergia employees could learn about what depression is, its symptoms, and when they should be concerned about their own or their loved ones’ well-being.
2) In June, Polenergia employees had the opportunity to participate in the webinar “Woman Burns Out Differently.” It was organized as part of the Career Cycle, a nationwide program for employers created by the Kulczyk Foundation. The webinar explored the impact of the menstrual cycle on mental resilience and job satisfaction. This is an example of support for female and male employees, taking into account biological differences and promoting mental health in the workplace.
3) In September, together with the “CukierAsy” Association, we organized a webinar addressing important issues related to diabetes. A diabetologist caring for “Sweet Poland,” Jędrzej Nowaczyk, talked about the essence of the disease, symptoms, course, and treatment. Michał Jeliński, an Olympic rowing champion from Beijing, the only Polish gold medalist with type 1 diabetes, shared his experience, and Mikołaj Illukowicz, the President of the “CukierAsy” Association, presented the idea of “Sweet Poland,” a soccer team of children with diabetes operating within the association.
4) In early October, employees of the Polenergia Group participated in an online meeting focusing on the prevention of cancer. The workshop was conducted by Marta Katarzyna Bednarek, an expert from the Rak’n’Roll Foundation. Win Life!
