Strategic goals


Strategic goals of the Śnieżka Group are focused on expanding its operations to successive European and non-European markets, while maintaining the leading position on the Eastern markets, with Poland being the key market. The Group intends to achieve this goal by focusing on selected countries of the Central and Eastern Europe and the Western Europe and building a leading position in those countries. For the Group, identification of the markets mentioned above as promising is the basis for developing a long-term presence strategy for those regions. The strategy of the Śnieżka Group assumes that those goals will be realized while taking the following assumptions into account:

  • maintaining the image of an attractive and reliable partner for both suppliers and customers of the Group, competing with innovation and flexibility defined among others as development of R&D, building quality advantage and openness to change,

  • developing multi-channel sales, including focus on in-depth customer segmentation and on the development of a competitive value offering for the customers;

  • competing through competence: promoting employee growth and building the high value of human capital;

The Group intends to improve its market potential by acquiring new selling markets and continuing to develop the offering under Śnieżka, Magnat, Vidaron, Foveo-Tech and Beston brands. Within the framework of its development strategy, the Group is interested in organic growth but also growth through equity investments. The management board of the parent company has set it as a goal to build strong and permanent relations with its trading partners, employees, shareholders as well as consumers. The Group will continue to support its trading partners, distributors and retailers in terms of information, marketing and training, by developing for them a competitive value offering.

Sustainable growth consistent with the adopted strategy should allow the Group to achieve the leading position on its key markets.

Issues related to human resources

In the Śnieżka Group, human resource management is conducted based on the conviction that the success of an organization depends on the people who work for its benefit and that employees are the most precious asset of an organization. Thanks to their commitment, passion, skills and attitudes supporting organizational values, the Company is able to set ever more ambitious objectives and, by achieving them, become a benchmark for the competition. As a continuously learning organization, we put emphasis on making sure that both our achievements and possible failures build up our experience and provide energy for walking the road to success.


In 2016, the Parent Company made a lot of efforts aimed at redefining its HR strategy and consistently implement all its elements. The strategy, which follows from the Parent Company’s vision, mission and business objectives, is focused predominantly on building a culture of deep involvement and genuine, above-average identification of employees at all levels of management with the direction set by the Management Board. That is why, in 2016, we studied the motivations of our employees and analyzed our performance management system, in particular our employee assessment system as its component, and focused on improving the leadership potential of our management. We also focused on the development of solutions that provide our staff with the best possible working conditions and opportunities for growth and self-fulfillment.

Being fully aware that our success largely depends on the current knowledge and specialized skills of our staff, we remembered to invest in the development of their expertise by offering them participation in various types of training, courses, conferences, seminars and postgraduate studies. Some of them were of a mandatory nature (their objective was to update or extend the required licenses), while others were aimed at updating the employees’ skills in line with the rapidly changing market needs and the technological progress in and around the organization. In 2016, the number of all training courses was 20% higher than the year earlier. In 2016, there was an increase in the Śnieżka Group’s headcount: from 884 staff as at 31 December 2015 to 974 staff as at 31 December 2016. The headcount in the Parent Company increased by 89 persons (from 628 staff as at 31 December 2015 to 717 staff as at 31 December 2016).
