Employee care

The Company  spent more than CZK 1,000 thousand on employee benefits, primarily work anniversary bonuses (CZK 169 thousand), season tickets for leisure activities (3 thousand), contributions to food allowances and preventive workplace medical care. A large por tion is represented by supplementary pension insurance contributions (CZK 877 thousand). Some CZK 2,600 thousand of the total amount constitutes the cost of sick days benefit provided to employees.


We place great emphasis on staff training and education, which is primarily focused on specialized courses and seminars aimed at enhancing expertise and know-how. Employees were also offered language courses and in-house courses on quality management, workplace health and safety, fire safety and the environmental management system. A total  of more than CZK 688 thousand was spent on staff training, excluding internal training. The cost of  internal training is included in wages and salaries as it  is considered loss of wages at the time of training. Such trainings are performed by internal lecturers from senior executives.
