The recruitment policy of the Warsaw Stock Exchange is geared towards recruitment of top class specialists in all areas of the company’s activity. In recruitment for strategic positions, the Exchange co-operates with professional human resources consultancies which provide a complete professional and psychological profile of the candidate. Effective employee recruitment is also supported by the WSE website section “Work with WSE.”

In 2012, the human resources policy focused on effective management of HR, payroll, social and bonus processes to match them with business needs and to support the implementation of the Exchange strategy. Monitoring of the payroll policy included a remuneration audit combined with mapping of job positions and job descriptions.

Training plays an important role in the process of employees’ professional development. For this purpose, training was offered in 2012 to improve specific professional qualifications and language skills; MA, post-graduate and PhD courses were also subsidized. In order to improve their professional competences, WSE employees also participated in conferences, congresses and seminars about the markets.

The Warsaw Stock Exchange offers the employees an incentive program consisting of an annual bonus (based on the employee’s individual appraisal and tied to the results of WSE) and a discretionary bonus. The Exchange also provides the employees with additional benefits including medical care, reimbursement of the cost of commuting, sports and recreation subsidies, holiday benefits (pre-paid card), non-returnable assistance in case of acts of nature, as well as loans such as housing and healthcare loans.
