The main pillar of the bank’s strategy is to support Polish companies and help the economy grow.

PKO Bank Polski is also the first bank of choice for start-ups. Close to one year after the purchase of a Financial technology (FinTech) company, business customers of the bank can benefit from a special promotional offer by participating in the loyalty program. ZenCard Technology gives entrepreneurs an opportunity to organize promotional and discount campaigns at their retail and service points via payment cards and the POS terminal.

The smallest companies, exporters as well as companies planning to expand abroad have access to information on foreign markets and industry analyses. This has become possible with the last year’s Export Support Platform, available at: www.wspieramyeksport.pl.

Support for digitization is part of the Bank's strategy
One of the Bank’s main strategy objectives between 2016-2020 is to complete digitization and support the development of e-government services in cooperation with public institutions. From the very beginning, PKO Bank Polski has been a leader in the digitization process and is proposing further innovative solutions that will facilitate contacting public institutions. The bank's customers also have the opportunity to access their PUE ZUS accounts, apply for the 500+ child benefit or register a Trusted Profile.
