Velká Bíteš, 20/4/2016.
První brněnská strojírna Velká Bíteš, a. s. has taken top honours in the very first contest entitled the Award of the Governor of Vysočina Region for social responsibility. PBS VB received the accolade in the category of "Private sector with over 250 employees".
The ranking for winners in the category "Private sector - employers with over 250 employees" is as follows:
1st place: První brněnská strojírna Velká Bíteš, a.s.
2nd place: MANN+HUMMEL (CZ) s.r.o. and MANN+HUMMEL Service s.r.o.
The region of Vysočina was the fifth in the Czech Republic to hold such a competition for social responsibility, in confirmation of efforts to contribute to public awareness of the matter, as well as to encourage and reward companies and organizations which have adopted responsible approaches towards regional development and applied basic principles of social responsibility in their operations. "Among the recipients of the award are key employers that are not indifferent to the present nor the future of their existence, which are ready and willing to do something beyond the scope of their duties," said the Governor of the Vysočina region, Jiří Běhounek.
PBS Velká Bíteš, within its long-term activities, seeks to adhere to a concept of social responsibility comprising four main pillars - regional, social, economic and environmental. The CEO, Ing. Milan Macholán, stated: "For us this award represents an accolade for the voluntary commitment made by the company to take on full responsibility for environmental protection, equal opportunities and a generally positive environment within the organization; in addition to promoting culture, sport and education and benefiting the socially or physically disadvantaged. Naturally, from our perspective, transparently dealing with clients and vendors is assured."
The second Award of the Governor of Vysočina Region for social responsibility is to be announced at the close of 2016, and První brněnská strojírna Velká Bíteš shall seek to defend its supreme position in the same category. "This award encourages us to continue along the same path, to carry on minimizing the impact of our activities on the environment, and deal with the social aspects of our operations and work, so as to enhance the competitiveness of the company," commented Mr Macholán.
