Employees at the Polkowice site volunteered their time to fix up a common room at the hospital in the neighboring town of Głogów. They also equipped it with furnishings and toys. Their employer, Volkswagen Motor Polska, provided financial support for the volunteer project. The idea to renovate the common room originally came from employee Dagmara Pytel (second from right) from the logistics department.
The survey for the 2017 Mood Barometer has been expanded by one block. It now includes one question each on the topics of integrity and cooperation in the Group. Employees can submit their assessment of whether they are able to behave with honesty and integrity in their team. They also have the opportunity to evaluate how well the companies in the Volkswagen Group work together. This year for the first time the survey is taking place in the fall instead of spring, from October 23 to November 19. You can find further information at www.stibam.de.
