What we offer:

We will provide you with employment stability

Multicafeteria platform – what is it?
The platform is a place where, as an employer, we top up your account every month so that you can choose the activities you are interested in.

There you will find tons of activities in categories such as sports, education, leisure and many more.
co-financing of meals from 6 restaurants – the choice is yours!
At Viessmann, we offer our employees subsidized meals from 6 restaurants – you choose what you want to eat on a given day. You can choose from Polish, Latin, Chinese, vegetarian and vegan cuisine.

The possibility of professional development – not a myth!
We are aware that the phrase „professional development opportunity” and „young, dynamic team” do not cause the heart to beat faster 🙂 Let’s focus on the numbers: only in 2021, as part of internal recruitment and promotions, 46 employees of our plant were given a chance for development . We also offer access to courses that will allow you to gain a new profession, as well as co-financing for studies or language courses. In 2021, 279 people participated in the training. We give young people with no experience an opportunity to enter the labor market – that’s why we are establishing cooperation with secondary and higher schools in Legnica to make it easier for them.
Sports activitites and integration with your team
The passions of our employees are very important to us, which is why we co-finance additional sports activities and, apart from work, we also like to spend time together. How? By co-organizing sightseeing trips for our employees and their families, a football team and we rent a sports hall
