Rawlplug HR Director on the jury for Enactus Poland 2016
Participants gathered in Warsaw's Palace of Culture for the Enactus Poland National Competition final. Key representatives from the business and scientific communities evaluated the ideas of students, aimed at improving the quality of life in local communities.
Enactus is the largest international non-profit organization, operating in 36 countries at 1700 universities worldwide. It brings together students and teachers from the academic world with business leaders, managers and companies. This allows students to gain unique experience related to the preparation and implementation of projects for socially responsible education and business. ‘Enactus activities deserve to be highlighted because apart from reawakening entrepreneurship, they build awareness of our constant ties with and responsibility for local communities. And for us at Rawlplug this is a particularly special value,’ explains Adrianna Chrobak, Rawlplug Group HR Director.
Each year, teams of student volunteers participate in the Enactus Poland National Competition during which the judges, representing the world of business, assess the projects implemented by all the teams in Poland. The aim of the competition is to select the winning proposal, the authors of which earn the right to represent Poland at the finals of the Enactus Global Competition.

This year, the event brought together a judging team of over 120 (CEOs, board members, senior management team members), and 300 students from Poland. ‘Interest from the business world, which they met up with in the final of the Enactus competition, bodes well for the young, talented students who presented their ideas with maturity,’ says Adrianna Chrobak. ‘The project presentations I had the opportunity to watch and judge repeatedly aroused my admiration for their level of preparation and conduct.’ The winning project was SweetHelp, presented by students from the Enactus University of Lodz. It provided training for retired people to take care of children with diabetes, enabling parents to return to work. The aim is for the elderly to have an additional job, feel more needed, and earn extra income.

Our activities in the field of social responsibility include the systematic support of students and graduates entering the labour market. We treat them with special care - helping them to assemble data in scientific work, conducting lectures and enabling learning from the experts thanks to our programme of internships.
