Jastrzębska Spółka Węglowa’s greatest asset are its people. The most valuable employees for us are those who identify with our company and its mission. Jastrzębska Spółka Węglowa currently employs 21 516 people. This includes 16 866  working underground and 4 650 surface employees.

As part of the Company’s strategy, production goes hand in hand with competencies, and the quality of competencies depends on the people. Therefore, the Company’s strategy involves employing new well-educated personnel as well as investing in initiatives aimed at improving the qualification of its current employees. Achieving this goal is to be made easier by mining schools, where attracting young people, often from traditional mining families, would supplement the Company’s efforts aimed at achieving its production plans with another truly valuable element, i.e. the human factor, with benefits for the local communities.

Jastrzębska Spółka Węglowa S.A. is the largest and highly valued employer in the region. The Company and the companies closely related to it play an important role in ensuring welfare stability of a large part of the region’s population. We work to provide our employees with the optimal conditions for their personal and professional development. Educating our employees is of great importance to us.

The main objectives of JSW S.A.’s personnel strategy include:

  • providing the Company with properly qualified specialists;
  • effectively and reasonably utilising the available human resources;
  • encouraging professional development of our employees through a career system, professional education and training.

Aware of the above and feeling socially responsible, we need to integrate the interests of the Company with the interests of the society in making our investment and development decisions.
This is reflected, among other things, in JSW S.A.’s commitment to:

  • investing in human resources and intellectual capital,
  • improving workplace health and safety, and
  • working to provide equal social opportunities.

Our employees are provided with a variety of benefits, including subsidised holidays, additional medical tests, training and courses to improve their qualifications, support parcels for sick employees, non-repayable financial support, and special gift parcels for our employees’ children on various occasions.

As part of those activities, we put great emphasis on the health of our employees. Jastrzębska Spółka Węglowa provides comprehensive medical care far in excess of what it is required to provide. This includes access to specialist health programmes or to psychological assistance in accidents and other crisis situations.
