We are pleased to announce that Alina Szynaka was featured in the tenth “100 BUSINESSWOMEN” Ranking, taking the prestigious 3rd place. This plebiscite is run by the “Puls Biznesu” daily newspaper, which was created in 2011 to promote entrepreneurship among women of the Polish business world. “Puls Biznesu” recognises and appreciates the growing role of women in business management in Poland. The basic aim of the ranking is to exchange experiences and to support all women who want to fulfil themselves professionally and privately, gain knowledge and share it with others. The current year, marked by the pandemic, has said to business: “I’m calling it!”. It is mainly those who have noticed new opportunities in the changes and who run their companies with sensitivity and empathy that are able to come out unharmed from this ordeal. This is also reflected in the “100 Women in Business 2020” ranking - this year's winners are managers who efficiently lead teams both offline and online, provide them with a sense of community and security, and do not create anachronistic divisions based on age or gender of employees. They are modern, they take full advantage of digital change, and at the same time they are able to empathise and recognise merit. Where others meet insurmountable obstacles, Businesswomen succeed. The criteria for participation in the ranking were stringent and the winners are selected in a multi-stage process. Participation was open to women holding the posts of board members or CEOs whose companies showed positive sales and profit value dynamics in the period 2018 -2019. The company they manage also needs to be highly regarded in the business community and have a good reputation.

- I am honoured to be among the top of the “100 Businesswomen” ranking. Thank you very much for recognising my work. This exceptional award is a great honour for me and my company, confirming that the chosen business strategy and the adopted management style produce very good results. In the business I run, I put a strong emphasis on its human side every day - I make sure that both the employees with whom we create a great team and our business partners feel throughout the cooperation how important they are to me. People are the foundation of my company's success, which is why I focus on their development and teamwork. I support them and share my experience both professionally and in private life. At every stage of my career, I try to inspire my employees to create new ideas and put them into practice, so that together we can realise our company’s ambitious development plans. Because it is only in team work based on mutual respect and understanding that one can build solid business foundations, which are the basis for the operation of every successful company - said President Alina Szynaka.

We would like to congratulate the President and wish her further success.
