EGGER Biskupiec as a partner of 22 Biskupiec Days
On the 20th - 22nd of July 2018. we celebrated together with the residents of the city the 22nd Biskupiec Days - the most important ceremony of the year. These celebrations began already on Friday, July 20, the International Folklore Day. After a beautiful parade of folklore groups from Canada, Ireland, Hungary, Macedonia and Peru, the artists performed in the city amphitheater. It was a great opportunity to get to know and admire the cultural heritage of various countries, presented by musicians, singers and dancers at the highest level.
Saturday turned out to be an extremely entertaining day. On the roll call square in the former military unit a huge stage, a children's play area and a restaurant garden for adults was prepared. On stage, talented young citizens of Biskupiec presented themselves in a concert of young talents. The first to appear was Danzel, the author of the hit "Pump it up!", Another star was Kamil Bednarek, the current star of the Polish music scene. But the famous group Perfect was a band that showed that he was the king of the stage. The greatest hits were sung together with Grzegorz Markowski, all gathered on the square in Biskupiec.
The third day of Biskupiec Days took place on the Słoneczny Brzeg. Everyone who decided to spend a day at the lake certainly found something for themselves over Lake Dadaj. With music playing all day, the children searched for treasures buried in the sand, took part in competitions in building castles, played with animators. The youth were scattered with the colored powder of the holi.
The Biskupiec Days also had a sports dimension. During them a series of tournaments was held for the Biskupiec Mayor's Cup - tennis, football, beach volleyball, fishing competitions. All sports events were popular with both players and fans. Egger Biskupiec funded prizes for participants of fishing competitions.
During these wonderful three days, representatives of the Egger Biskupiec company accompanied the Biskupiec residents. Every day we were present with our information tent. We were visited by people interested in starting work in our factory, they were asking what the recruitment process looks like, and most of all what progress we have on the construction site.
Involvement in the life of the local community is one of the values most appreciated by the EGGER Group employees. The company's factories are built for many years of operation. The employees employed in it are mainly residents of the surrounding production plants and the region. That is why long-term neighborly relations are so important for EGGER. The Group actively participates in the development of regions in which it operates and willingly cooperates with local authorities. It supports residents of towns where its factories operate in both social and educational activities. Supporting teaching activities is one of the company's priorities.
