Best Workplaces™ Poland 2022
We're excited to announce that ITMAGINATION is a winner of the Best Workplaces™ Poland 2022 award! The award ceremony is organized by the Great Place to Work® institute - an organization that has been supporting brands around the world for over 30 years in changing their workplaces for the better.
The winners are selected from among the companies that have received the Great Place to Work® certification over the past year. In addition to being a winner of the Best Workplaces™ Poland 2022 award, ITMAGINATION has been certified for the third year in a row as a Great Place To Work – we were certified in 2019/2020, 2020/2021, and most recently for 2021/2022.
We aspire to be one of the world's best employers in the IT sector. There will always be room for improvement, but today we can celebrate a big win for our team, and we can see the effects of our efforts to listen to and act on our team's feedback and improve our company to continue to be a great workplace.
We are honored to be part of such a select group of companies who are advancing the work culture in Poland and in Europe to new heights. Our motivation to become one of the best employers in the tech industry is what drives us, and our human-to-human approach is the secret to our success.
The Great Place To Work survey is a great way to collect valuable feedback from our team, while the Great Place To Work certificate and Best Workplaces award are a wonderful testament to the work we’re doing to continuously make ITMAGINATION a leading company.
We are grateful to be working with such exemplary teammates, and we are very happy that they enjoy working at ITMAGINATION.

Great Place to Work® And ITMAGINATION
Our team first took part in the Great Place to Work® study in 2019/2020 to improve the quality of working conditions and meet our team's expectations. Thanks to the positive feedback from employees, ITMAGINATION was awarded the Great Place to Work® certificate on the first attempt. We went on to be certified for a second time in 2020/2021, and a third time in 2021/2022.
Where Did We Excel This Year?
Fair Pay, Learning & Growth Opportunities, and Freedom.
These are the top 3 areas where ITMAGINATION shines, and where our employees feel that they are getting the most value by being a part of our team. We have significantly outperformed others in the Top 22 in Poland in the areas of management and the team's autonomy where managers:
Don't pick favorites
Trust the team
Keep the team aligned and focused on common goals
Set clear expectations
What Are We Working On Improving?
Feedback that is 100% positive does not exist, there is always room for improvement, and companies who don’t improve moving forward are left behind.
One of our core values is Transparency, we embrace this in our day-to-day work and in big moments and announcements like these.
Our team feels that we can still improve in several areas, we have heard their feedback and implemented some changes already and have more coming down the line.
Celebrating various special occasions - we have already implemented an integration budget and are also conducting remote get-togethers, cooking sessions, and more!
We have recently added more benefits, including fully funded life insurance for team members who have been with us for more than two years, and a subsidized policy for those who have more recently joined us. We already have health insurance and sports packages which offer significant discounts for our team and their family members!
Building a stronger sense of community internally is what we are also addressing over the next year. We hope to achieve this by better integration events, even more transparency with the introduction of different HR initiatives (to be released soon!) and more.
Top Performers Bonus - A Unique Reward System For Our Team
We designed a unique compensation program for our team members who decide to stay with ITMAGINATION for longer. We wanted to reward those whose performance makes a significant impact on ITMAGINATION’s growth and who are very engaged with the company.
Implementing the bonus system was done in careful coordination between our People & Finance departments. We decided to go for this very unique approach after studying different types of compensation plans that are on the market in both private and public companies.
Each team member working on providing services to our clients, e.g. Analysts, Developers, Designers, Engineers, Scrum Masters, or Quality Auditors is eligible for the bonus. You can find the “Top Performers Bonus” tag next to each job opening that qualifies for it, and a “Bonuses” tag next to each job opening that qualifies for performance-based bonuses.
The only requirement to qualify for the Top Performers Bonus is a minimum number of 1,848 working hours worked over the past 12 months (a typical calendar year has 2,088 working hours on average). That means all hours that are spent working on client projects, internal projects, and training & certifications will count towards the total number of hours that need to be fulfilled to qualify for the bonus. The bonus system takes into account time off and is adjusted for it.
The Top Performers Bonus is worth one month’s remuneration and is divided into 4 installments:
10% is paid at the end of the 12-month period,
20% is paid 3 months later,
30% is paid 6 months later,
40% is paid 9 months later
Naturally, while our team members collect their vesting Top Performers Bonus, they are already working towards the next bonus.
Here is a graphical represenation of how the longer-term bonus system looks like in practice:
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch with our team! Go to the job opportunity you're interested in and contact the recruiter responsible for that role with the details that are available on the job openings page.
