In its activities, the Company strives to provide a rational diversity both in the selection of both the composition of its governing bodies and in the process of recruitment. Representatives of the Company recognize the real benefits of ensuring diversity, in particular with regard to age, experience and gender.

The personal representatives of the two governing bodies provide diversity in the field of education and work experience. Moreover, the composition of the Management Board, in addition to the provision of the above criteria of diversity, is also significantly diverse in terms of age of the individual members of this body.
A noteworthy for the evaluation of the Company’s actual implementation of the diversity policy is the data on the employment, while also [...] having regard to already recalled restrictions related to the specifics of the Company. At present, more than 18% of the Company's employees are women, and more than 25% of the personnel is over 40 years of age. In case of the managerial staff, the majority of workers are aged 35 - 45, thus providing next to professional competence also dynamism, openness and professional experience. In addition, 30% of the staff are women.
