NGA HR Goes Top of the Class
NGA Human Resources believes that all businesses must prepare for the future of work. Much of this involves training our leaders of tomorrow.
In the summer of 2016 our Talent Acquisition team in Poland, launched an internship program aimed at attracting millennials into our service center in Katowice, a workplace that boasts a workforce of five generations, sharing the skills and experience we need to provide customer service excellence now and moving forward.
This project in Poland extends the close relationships we already have with universities around the world.
In Granada, Spain, we are recognised as a major employer, recruiting from the international talent pool that flocks to the university city, and in the UK, we have our second generation of apprentices who have already jump started their careers into permentant roles.
'Be like a kaNGAroo and jumpstart your career'
This creative project tag line very much mirrors the outcome and not only caught the attention of potential interns, but of the HR industry.
Last week, we were delighted to be awarded second place in the prestigious 'Internship Organizer of Silesia Region 2016' award, beating 41 competitors to this accolade!
The award, organized by the Silesian University and the local newspaper Dziennik Zachodni, was accepted at a gala dinner by our Katowice Site Lead, Agnieszka Hetmańczyk. It is now proudly on display in our office.
What made NGA HR a winner?
- NGA HR interns are involved across the entire business, starting with basic tasks and evolving to complex as they gain experience
- Interns receive training throughout their internship, gaining valuable commercial experience in HR technology platforms including SAP on premise HCM and SAP, and core HR skills
- Interns are integrated and on boarded into the business equally to any new starter

“The NGA summer internship program opened up the way to gain a first work experience, which is so important on the job market. I met a lot of great people with whom I cooperate on daily basis. From the beginning I was involved in duties related to HR administration. I could combine working at NGA HR and studying at the university.
"What matters for me after three months’ summer program? I stayed with NGA HR!” Agata Pszczółkowska, a former NGA HR intern and now permanent employee
