Did you know that our Intel site in Poland grew from 120 employees to more than 850 in 12 years. Last year we hired around 250 new employees and we’re still growing! Our site in Poland is one of the biggest in Europe with a wide scope of activities on the R&D front. R&D in Gdansk are linked to the products which are already on the market as well to those which would be launched in 4-5 years. Our people are our best asset and our HR department is a crucial for their success and today I’d like to focus on our HR division. Intel Poland has a very developed HR department which supports employees through four key groups:
Staffing Shared Service Center supports the recruitment and hiring process within the EMEA region. It provides first-rate, cost-effective services and support to employees worldwide and is dedicated to advancing Intel’s business goals.
Talent Advisors are responsible for searching and hiring the brightest talents from the market, and also for preparing the strategic recruitment plans and analysis based on the current job market indicators and high-level positioning from management.
Business HR– is focusing on strategy building and finding solutions for the issues related with quality management, employee training and development. The division is fulfilling the business needs in HR related fields, collaboration with managers about hiring plans, defining the work related roles etc.
Global Employee Support focuses on providing an outstanding quality of Intel employee support, by managing issues that span through whole EMEA region. This group solves day-to-day queries and cases such as problems connected with: retirement services, BHR Focal tools, reporting, questions data, health benefits, stock and relocation, payroll or payment inaccuracies. Support of this group is provided for whole EMEA region. This is very international team consisting of team members from Poland, Russia and Israel and providing support for the whole EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Europe) region. Don’t just take our word for it- meet Anna, a member of this team who moved to Gdansk (northern Poland) from Cracow (southern Poland) to be a part of this great team. Check out her story!
