PKO wants to take business to a higher level
PKO Bank Polski, the biggest bank in Poland, came up with an initiative for small business owners who are interested in improving their condition and expanding operations. Financial institutions’ representatives say that a bank is as strong as its customers, therefore it is in the interest of the company to have account holders that enjoy steady growth and have good standing. PKO has prepared a series of workshops for entrepreneurs across the country the goal of which is to pass knowledge on the latest developments in the world of finance and law.
The name of the worship series is “Dzień Dobry Biznes” (“Good Morning Business”). The organisers want to teach the participants how to successfully develop their businesses, build a strong and recognisable brand, and be seen as attractive employers if they are looking for new employees. The events will take place in eleven towns across Poland and are available for companies that employ up to 50 staff members. The tagline of the workshops is “Expanding company”.
One of the topics on the agenda will be the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the ways it will affect companies in Poland. The new law, which is to come into effect in May, means new obligations for businesses. Companies urgently need to adapt their systems and data processing procedures, but many of them are still not sure how to tackle this task. Some other topics that will be discussed during the workshops are effective online advertising, promoting business and products, company PR, and Export Support Platform. Participants will also have a chance to talk to numerous finance and banking experts.
The first event of the series took place in Wieliczka near Kraków. PKO BP will soon visit other Polish towns: Krosno, Świdnica, Nysa, Zielona Góra, Stargard, Chełm, Siedlce and Radom.
