Every employee in his field of work respects the principles of the profession, the legal regulations of the Republic of Croatia and the regulations of the association. The whole work is organized in a way that requires team spirit and close cooperation in order to achieve business goals for the benefit of citizens. By encouraging social dialogue among employees and investing in their training and improvement, it contributes to the quality of their work and thus increases the satisfaction of service users. In addition to the work of permanent and seasonal employees, voluntary work of citizens is encouraged in order to develop solidarity and promote volunteering as a selfless service to the community.
The overall quality objective is to continuously improve social programs, services and humanitarian projects for the beneficiaries, to develop new quality projects while developing human resources and volunteering, to build and maintain good and correct collaborative relationships with partners, and to create the preconditions for a safer way of working and maintaining employee health.
Satisfaction of employees and users of services as well as other stakeholders (suppliers, partners, owners, the state, regulators, competitors, media) is sought through the implementation of ISO 9001 quality management system and compliance with the relevant legal regulations. Quality policy is implemented in such a way that constant improvement of quality is encouraged in all locations of work and in all business processes.
