The Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity (GOCC) finale is upon us and Recruitees in Poland are participating in the big fundraising initiative for the second year in a row by volunteering themselves, their professional skills, and time for auction. 

The charity was established in Warsaw, Poland in 1993; and gives citizens the opportunity to bid on consultation sessions to gain insights, coaching or advice in various disciplines and categories with volunteers. In addition to this, citizens can also put valuable items up for auction to raise funds.

The annual auction is not only popular with the public but also a favorite amongst celebrities and artists, proving just how significant this initiative is in Poland.

In fact, the charity raised zł 224 million with its auction in 2022.

In the case of Recruitee, people bid to get advice on the skills involved in finding a job; general career advice; or for guidance and inspiration in progressing in their current ones.

"I believe that great organizations like Recruitee should do something meaningful beyond business. Acting with care for society and those in need is a perfect fulfillment of our mission."
Dominik Grzegorzewski
Senior Talent Acquisition Specialist | Recruitee

Recruitee sees the need for its employees’ specialized HR and recruiting skills and knowledge more than ever in the midst of a difficult job market, global mass layoffs; and career stagnation. 

This is Recruitee’s chance to give back to society by personalizing sessions to the needs of the winners and imparting knowledge with the hopes of helping someone take a step in finding their first or dream job; and elevating people’s careers; while at the same time supporting a great cause.

You can track the Recruitees’ performance at the auction here.  

"I think sharing knowledge is essential, and GOCC events are one of the best ways to do it, because everyone's a winner. Recruitee is about collaboration and we are happy to share our knowledge with others"
Martyna Wilkońska
Senior Quality Engineer | Recruitee

The funds raised are used to purchase medical equipment for hospitals; and running medical and educational programs in hospitals and schools across Poland.

The main focus of the charity in 2023 is to educate people on and to make progress in beating sepsis. Although GOCC is active all year round, its most well-known initiative takes place every January. 

This year eight employees from Recruitee’s Polish office ranging from HR experts, backend developers, quality engineers; and product designers are volunteering their time and expertise.
