The passion for packaging of our employees is the reason for our long existence.

Always energizing and inciting

The Model Group does not have employees: it has partners. We are home to strong individuals who forge connections by working together to create our vision and make it a reality. This unifying goal is the inspiration behind all our activities and is our most precious asset. It turns our employees into partners, ensuring everyone takes personal responsibility for their own actions.

1. Our ambition

We protect, challenge and support

Professional occupational safety is a cornerstone of successful, people-focused companies. That is why we do everything we can to avoid accidents and occupational illness.

We offer targeted support to talented employees and offer further development opportunities, coaching, and training while supporting and encouraging personal responsibility.

Our employees know the importance and value of their contribution to ensure we reach our goals. For us, trust is a form of capital, and the best way to grow it is with honesty.

«By 2030, all employees who want to be supported will be supported.»

2. Our actions

MODEL Your Dreams

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) assumes that companies have social interests at heart and be valuable not only to explicit stakeholders but also to the local community. CSR is not a necessity but a conscious choice of companies actively taking care of their environment. Model Opakowania in Poland is exactly doing that for many years already.

One of our sponsoring initiatives is a competition called «MODEL Your Dreams». Since 2013 it has been organized in Biłgoraj, and since 2016 in Czosnów. The basic idea of the contest is to support young, ambitous talents. Young people get inspired to pursue their passions and dreams, in order to determine an auspicious future and hence career path.

Approximately 150 young people have taken part since the beginning, and for many of them winning became a motivation to stand up for themselves and their future. A holistic success which has given the participants a tailwind.

Safety does not mean anything...

...if you do not trust anyone. That is why we carry out regular training sessions on occupational safety, review corporate processes on an ongoing basis and analyze systematic errors

We use the Model Lean System across our factories. This involves the integration of all our employees into an internally audited occupational safety and management system, with every accident and near-miss registered and analyzed. Plus, our employees come forward immediately if they notice a safety issue.

We carry out regular ‘GEMBA walks’, where we identify risks in the workplace. GEMBA is a Japanese term meaning ‘the actual place’, ‘the real place’ or ‘the place where value is created’.

We are working towards certification of all our factories under ISO 45001. Occupational safety plays a big role in this; for example, correct operation of machines.

Young people are the future

In 2021, we trained 59 apprentices and were by their side as they entered the world of work. At the Model Group, an appealing working environment, top-quality training, and exciting internships lay the foundation for the talent of the future.

The career boost you need

We set great store by our employees’ training and professional development. We undertake regular hands-on coaching sessions to hone the skillsets of our specialists and managers.

We entrust projects to our young, talented employees so they can prove themselves within a fixed framework. In turn, young workers at every company within the Model Group can draw on the knowledge of many generations of employees: some of our colleagues have been working for our company for 20 years or more.

And if we do not have the necessary expertise ourselves, we help our employees take up external training and professional development opportunities with funds from our employer-financed foundation. In 2020, we offered assistance to the tune of almost EUR 1 million.

3. Our goals

What we want to achieve

By 2030, we want to reduce the number of accidents in the workplace across the entire group.

  • To achieve this, we have deployed the ISO 45001 occupational safety system at every Model Group site.
  • Our new concept for handling hazardous substances is also part of this.
