Prologis has been named a Friendly Workplace 2021! The distinction is awarded annually to companies that support their employees across a range of fields, including helping them maintain a healthy work-life balance, creating a positive working environment, fostering good relations with employees, and investing in their professional development.
““Our people are always our top priority. Our success as a company is all down to the work of our employees. For this reason, we treat our employees as internal customers, giving them the highest levels of openness, professionalism, commitment and understanding. Being awarded the title of Friendly Workplace 2021 is yet more proof that we have created a unique environment in which employees can feel good, and where we can help them develop in accordance with their chosen career path"- said Paweł Sapek, senior vice president, regional head Prologis Central Europe.
The award judges expressed particular appreciation for Prologis' involvement in a range of activities aimed at ensuring a proper work-life balance and employee well-being during the pandemic..
During the last year, we have focused on counteracting the negative effects of the pandemic for our employees, and we continue to develop these projects. As part of the Employee and Their Family support program, we offer access to independent advisors who can help in many aspects of everyday life – from psychological support, through help in finding childcare, to financial and legal consultations. External Health Advocate specialists ensure complete confidentiality and provide assistance in the form most convenient for the person seeking support.
Another element which we introduced to help employees maintain harmony and regain their energy while working remotely for many months is our pan-European "Recharge" program led by external specialists. Here, our employees can share their knowledge and skills during weekly online wellbeing sessions.
Our employees can also continuously develop their competences and interests thanks to our e-learning platform offering hundreds of courses in various fields of knowledge. Moreover, our newest coaching platform, BetterUp, was launched in the spring. This offers employees the ability, together with their managers, to make even better decisions about the next stages of their development path.
At Prologis, we have always allowed flexible working hours, with employees able to adapt as much as possible to suit their individual needs. This model is efficient, and in line with our culture of inclusion and understanding.
Now, we have taken this a step further by introducing our new "Flexibility" philosophy, which promotes a completely new approach to flexible working
That is why we have taken this one step further and are now introducing the "Flexibility" philosophy. It is based on a completely new approach to the flexible workplace.
“Last year was challenging for everyone - both employees and employers. Throughout the pandemic, our priority has been providing teams and their families with the greatest possible sense of security and the specific support they need. We are proud that our commitment has been noticed and appreciated by a group of independent experts. However, the greatest reward of all has been recognition of our efforts from employees themselves ”emphasizes Marta Tęsiorowska, vice president, Head of Marketing & Communications Prologis in Europe.
The "Friendly Workplace" title is awarded to a select group of companies each year by experts from the editorial board of Marek Employer. The competition assesses companies’ initiatives across five criteria in detail: relations with employees, professional and personal development, work life balance, a healthy work environment, and offered benefits.
