In connection with the COVID-19 pandemic, the Internal Control Office, in recognition of barriers and limitations in the field of on-site training in the field of fraud, took the initiative involving preparation of a training for employees of the LOTOS Group on the e-learning platform (the e-learning training course is being prepared and will be implemented in 2021). All employees of the LOTOS Group were supposed to familiarise themselves with the mandatory training and to pass the test of knowledge in the field of fraud prevention (including corruption). Other companies from the LOTOS Group received a recommendation to apply in the same obligation of becoming familiar with the training to their employees.
Adaptation trainings also changed their formula in 2020. There was one on-site training, organised by the Internal Audit Office (a total of 31 people were trained from: the LOTOS Group, LOTOS Paliwa and LOTOS Lab) and no further meetings were planned due to the restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead of traditional trainings, an online adaptation training was prepared. New hires became familiar with the training path on the e-learning platform. In the LOTOS Group, the adaptation path in the online version last year was completed by 75 employees (126 people in total). All employees of the LOTOS Group and subsidiaries were also obliged to familiarise themselves with the new Policy of the LOTOS Group on fraud prevention.
