Poland: Action already has 4,000 employees in Poland and will hire more

Discount Variety Retail Chain Action (owned by 3i Group), the fastest growing chain of non-food discount stores in Europe, already employs 4,000 people in Poland. The chain has been present in Poland since 2017 and has 278 stores, enabling residents of 212 Polish cities to access a wide range of products at the lowest price.

Action plans further dynamic development in Poland and maintaining annual employment growth at the level of approximately 1,000 employees.

Action is present in 11 European countries, providing customers with its unique formula: 6,000 good quality products in 14 categories, at the lowest possible price. Every week, 150 new WIGIG products appear on the shelves, and over 1,500 items from the assortment, some available at a price below PLN 5. The first store of the brand in Poland was opened in 2017 in Leszno.

In total, Action currently has 4,000 employees in Poland. Exceeding this threshold occurred with the launch of the brand's newest store, which was officially opened on Saturday, July 1 in Gdańsk. For each store opening, Action employs 12 people, from the store manager to the store employee. The company also has a Polish headquarters and operates three Distribution Centers in our country.

"We are very proud to welcome our 4,000th employee, Oliwia Leszczyńska, assistant store manager in Gdańsk. This milestone underlines the dynamics of Action's development in Poland. Thanks to our rapid development, we employ about 1,000 people per year. By the end of 2023, we will hire 600 new employees", says Ewa Dawiec, HR Manager Action in Poland. "In all the positions we fill, from store workers to supply chain specialists and property managers, we all share Action's values: Customer Focus, Teamwork, Simplicity, Discipline, Cost Awareness and Respect. They are the basis of our success because they form the basis for our interactions with each other, our customers and business partners."

Action's commitment to creating a unique workplace is based on hiring people who share the brand's values, as well as investing in the career development of existing employees. By the end of 2023, the company plans to promote over 260 employees in Poland. Action also strongly focuses on young people who are just entering the labor market and are looking for a friendly place to start their career path in a friendly brand environment.

"Enabling our colleagues to grow together with our brand is part of our success. We are convinced that internal promotions are the driving force of commitment, long-term cooperation, and are also a strong asset of Action during the recruitment itself. They are also key to preserving DNA Action with such intensive development. Our rapid expansion enables us to provide mobility and internal promotions for employees. For example, one of our Regional Managers started his career as an employee of our first Polish store", explains Ewa Dawiec. "There is no shortage of such stories both in the current team and among the employees who have been with us since the very beginning of Action's presence in the country. No matter where our colleagues are, they are the key to our success. Their commitment and energy allow us to achieve our ambitions", he adds.
