Constant development

We know that our employees are our greatest asset. That’s why at Allegro we give everyone the chance to gain unique knowledge and experience. The unique scale of operations in Poland and our constant technological development offers everyone at Allegro a unique chance to strengthen their professional competencies. The results of the engagement survey also show that one of the most important factors that influence the commitment of our employees are the development opportunities we offer.

To properly structure the development process of our employees, we have introduced a comprehensive training programme called MindUp. MindUp includes training, conferences, workshops and development meetings, grouped by type, subject and function:

  • Get knowledge - trainings, workshops on specific topics, postgraduate studies, courses, and exams that are the most useful in the given role and in the given business area,
  • Share experience – e.g. training sessions during which employees have the opportunity to assume the role of the instructors and share their knowledge with others from the organization To this end, employees receive the necessary support from the HR department, who will prepare them for the role of instructors,
  • Unlock self-awareness – training to develop the so-called soft skills that stimulate creativity and innovation,
  • Be inspired – employees can take advantage of, among all, inspiring insights and best practices presented by various authorities, invited to take part in meetings with Allegro employees,
  • Lead others – training intended for managers to improve, among others, their team management skills.

    We focus on the so-called continuous conversation, which is essentially a constant and regular dialogue between the superior and the employees. This allows to constantly update the goals and tasks. Once a year we also organise development-related meetings, to review and discuss the individual goals and goals of the team. All employees with whom we have signed contracts of employment are covered by the employee evaluation process, provided they have worked for us for at least 6 months.

    How do we evaluate employees?

    • Step 1: The employee performs a self-assessment in the HR system,
    • Step 2: The superior may ask the closest associates or external partners with whom the employee has cooperated for an opinion on him or her,
    • Step 3: At a face-to-face meeting, the superior performs the assessment together with the employee, sets future goals and talks about future development,
    • Step 4: Summary of the meeting in an on-line module.
