59.7 percent of land in Poland is occupied by farms. The amount of farmland increased by 319,100 hectares last year, according to the Central Statistical Office (GUS).

Ten companies and institutions were given awards for their equal work opportunity policies at a ceremony held by the Gender Index Project at the Polski Theater in Warsaw Jan. 21.

The Gender Index Project has been developed by experts at the United Nations Development Program (UNDP). It aims to create workplace environments that promote equal opportunities for men and women in Polish companies.

All Polish companies and institutions can join the project. They need to provide information about their recruitment methods, promotion systems and wage raises.

Of the more than 130 Polish enterprises that applied, 100 were allowed to participate in the second Equal Opportunity Employer competition, which was conducted in two categories. In the SME category, the winners were Skrivanek Sp. z o.o. translation agency; Spółdzielnia Pionier, a manufacturer of metal and plastic products for the automotive industry; and the Zamoyski Museum in Kozłówka. Special mentions went to ADT Poland Sp. z o.o. for making it easier for workers to combine work with family responsibilities; and Platinet Polska - Krzysztof Potok for promotion of equal opportunity policies.

In the large enterprise category, the winners were the Academy of Humanities and Economics in ŁódĽ; Proctor & Gamble Operations Polska Sp. z o.o.; and E. Szczeklik Hospital in Tarnów.

Danuta Hübner, EU commissioner for regional policy, lent her name to this year's competition. The Equal Opportunity Employer competition was organized with the support of the European Social Fund.
