Introduction


Stakeholders of each organization are groups that have a significant impact on enterprises functioning and achievement of its purposes. Actually relationships with stakeholders are crucial for fate of any business. They determine its survival, growth, development or decline. Usually external stakeholders are indicated in this case. They are mainly customers, but internal stakeholders such as employees are equally important. They perform current tasks, what affects the level of company's purposes realization. Their involvement in company's activity or employment period is dependent on many factors, among which the most significant are benefits from employment, that is work made for employer. Employee's decisions, regarding employment and expected benefits, were affected by a high level of unemployment as well as opportunities offered by other EU countries and significantly higher salaries, proposed there. Incomes may belong to main purposes and expectations of this group of stakeholders. However, employees
set of purposes and expectation is diverse and can be different for majority of them. The situation is similar in case of employers' expectations.
The purpose of this article is to identify employees
expectations and scope of satisfying them by employers, based on research conducted among employees employed in Lower Silesian enterprises.

Summary

Studies have confirmed that financial expectations are the most important purpose for surveyed employees. Equally important is contract for an unspecified time, which increase employment security and flexible working time and clear criteria for employees
evaluation. Employees' expectation are more often met in large companies with a form of joint stock companies. In production companies often salaries are satisfactory,  in turn in mixed activity companies only in every second of them. Among employees satisfied with obtained benefits from work, there is little more than half of surveyed women. Men are less satisfied. Every eighth respondent was not satisfied with the work, which may mean that these people are looking for a new employer.

OCZEKIWANIA PRACOWNIKÓW I ICH WDROŻENIE W PRZEDSIĘBIORSTWACH DOLNEGO ŚLĄSKA

Streszczenie:

Niniejszy artykuł jest próbą identyfikacji celów i oczekiwań pracowników, oraz zakres ich realizacji przez pracodawców. Pracownicy są przedstawiani jako ważni interesariusze każdego przedsiębiorstwa, wraz z ich potrzebami i oczekiwaniami, które stanowią korzyści z ich wkładu w funkcjonowanie tych organizacji. Rozważania teoretyczne na temat tej grupy interesariuszy zostały porównane z wynikami badań empirycznych, przeprowadzonych wśród pracowników zatrudnionych w dolnośląskich przedsiębiorstwach. Wyniki badań wykazały, że oczekiwane, finansowo satysfakcjonujące zarobki, są głównym celem pracownika i są spełnione w większości przedsiębiorstw. Bardzo ważne dla pracowników jest również bezpieczeństwo zatrudnienia, co oznacza wybór pracodawcy o ugruntowanej pozycji rynkowej i stabilnej sytuacji finansowej.
