WYG is celebrating in Poland after picking up not one but two prestigious awards.
Last month saw WYG receive the title of ‘Ambassador of the Polish Economy 2013’ in the ‘Partner of foreign companies’ category at the fifth annual Business Centre Club awards.
The title of ambassador is awarded to Polish companies that promote Poland in the international arena as a reliable business partner, contribute to the economic development of the country and build credibility and trust in Poland and Polish people.
The annual Ambassador of the Polish Economy competition is organised by the Business Centre Club, the largest private employer organisation in Poland, with the support of Polish Minister of Foreign Affairs.
In addition, WYG was awarded a Silver Emblem in the prestigious Quality International 2013 programme in the services category. More than 1,000 companies participated in the programme, representing almost all sectors of the economy and local governments.
WYG was recognised for "Raising EU funds and implementation of complex consulting projects for socio-economic development and infrastructure." The competition was organised by Business Forum, a member of the most influential business daily in Poland, under the auspices of the Ministry of Regional Development, the Polish Agency for Regional Development and the Polish Forum ISO 9000.
Tomasz Gierwatowski, Managing Director of WYG Poland said: ‘It gives us great pleasure to see our work appreciated in this way and I’m particularly proud to see WYG awarded the title of ‘Ambassador of the Polish Economy 2013’. This was made possible by collaborative working with other regional WYG offices which demonstrates that together we can deliver the quality of work everyone can be proud of.’
