Mission and attitudes
The company mission is based on the idea that books are not just a livelihood and a general medium for us, but we can draw inspiration from them, broaden our horizons with them and for a moment abandon the problems of today. We consider books, whether in traditional paper or modern electronic form, as an important pillar on which the formation of the human personality stands. Therefore, through our work, we try to appeal, among other things, to those responsible to encourage young people to read and work with books.
Based on the management system and quality policy, we follow the following principles:
We prioritize satisfied customers over profit and we are responsible for the quality of services performed by deepening the individual qualifications and competencies of our employees.
We take note of the competition, fully respect it and do not try to fight it.
We increase efficiency in performing work activities by introducing and using modern methods and technologies.
We use part of the profit to support projects that deal with foreign language training or assistance for socially disadvantaged groups.
We have set up internal organizational processes so that there are no gender inequalities in average wages and the number of women and men employed.
