Representatives of the member companies of Business Leaders Forum met in Poprad

BLF membership has grown to 34.

On Wednesday, 22 June 2016, a regular quarterly meeting of the members of Business Leaders Forum (BLF) was held. The meeting was hosted by WHIRLPOOL SLOVAKIA s. r. o., a company which operates a production plant in Poprad focusing on the research, development and production of “white” household appliances – top and front loading washing machines. It is one of the biggest plants with a daily turnout of 11,000 washing machines. The company is also one of the biggest employers in the region.

The regular quarterly meeting was attended by representatives of the member companies Deloitte, Embraco, Kaufland Slovenská republika, TNT Slovensko, U.S. Steel Košice, Volkswagen Slovakia and Whirlpool. Besides evaluating the activities of the association over the past six months (CEE CSR Summit 2016, Via Bona Slovakia for 2015), the meeting focused on themes like work-life balance, green buildings, women in business, or employment of refugees and the Romani. The membership of our association has also grown to 34 members. All participants of the meeting took a very interesting tour of the Whirlpool production plant, where they could get inspired, for example, by the activities of the company in the area of workplace safety and health protection. The next meeting of the BLF members will take place on 8 September 2016.
