Tate & Lyle shortlisted for two national business awards in Poland


Tate & Lyle’s Global Shared Services team in Lodz recognised for delivering positive change for the local community and creating a vibrant workplace

Tate & Lyle, a leading global provider of food and beverage ingredients and solutions, is proud to announce that its Global Shared Services (GSS) team based in Lodz, Poland, has been recognised for its commitment to community giving and employee wellbeing in the ABSL Diamonds Awards 2018.

The ABSL Diamonds Awards are national awards recognising excellence and innovation in Poland’s business services sector.

Tate & Lyle’s GSS team in Lodz, consisting of more than 300 employees providing financial transactional activities and other services to Tate & Lyle’s business across the world, has been shortlisted in two categories:

  • The ‘Corporate Social Responsibility’ category in recognition of the team’s strong commitment to local community involvement and giving. Activities include employees organising cooking workshops, picnics and fundraisers for children at a local orphanage, running craft workshops for local children (pictured), collecting feed and accessories for a local animal shelter and donating gifts to a local hospital.
  • The ‘Vibrant Workplace’ category in recognition of the team’s efforts to create a dynamic work environment that supports health and wellness, personal development and team building. Initiatives in the "I Love My Job" programme range from health and wellness lectures and training, to activities involving colleagues’ families, such as family picnics and Open Days where children learn about their parents’ jobs.

These two shortlistings follow recognition in a scheme initiated by the President of Lodz, which saw Tate & Lyle named as one of the top employers in the city.

Milosz Aleksander, Vice President, Global Shared Services, Tate & Lyle, said: “We are incredibly proud to be recognised for the projects we support in the local community, and for creating a positive working environment and culture. Everyone in the team in Lodz plays a part in making the Tate & Lyle GSS Centre a great place to work, with strong support from our colleagues in Human Resources, our employee engagement champions, our and Wellness and Activity teams.”
