Community Fair Play

This year’s edition of the “Community Fair Play” contest has come to an end. On October 21, at the Bristol Hotel in Warsaw, the best communities in Poland received certificates and prizes. 13 ambitious local governments were awarded with the “Community Fair Play” title.

Currently, in many communities investors can count on professional support of local authorities. Polish communities have reached a point where they are beginning to see the need to verify their long-term goals, to which strategic plans are subject. It is important for them to match acquired investments with the long-term needs of their local and regional communities, including the creation of new jobs, better living conditions, meeting professional ambitions of inhabitants and raising the attractiveness of the region. Communities seek new investments and raise the standard of services. These measures should be considered and included in the long-term plan aimed at realizing ambitious visions of development. The best visions and strategies were awarded in this year’s edition of the “Community Fair Play” contest.

Contest with tradition

For 15 years, the “Fair Play Community” contest has gained the trust of local governments as a prestigious project, giving them tangible benefits in the form of broad promotion and increased interest of investors.

The motto of the 15th edition was “Community with a vision”. Awards were given to communities that were able to work out an ambitious final vision, who consciously plan their development, and whose actions are based on an understanding of the needs of the investor and local community and the need to develop mutual benefits. The organizers pay particular attention to the future plans of the participants, their feasibility and consistency with the needs of the community

A community with a vision already at the stage of planning the investment wants its effects to be felt for many years and to be an impulse for further regional development. - adds Dr Mieczysław Bąk, Chairman of the Nationwide Committee of the “Community Fair Play” contest.

In this year’s edition, communities participated in 4 categories:
- multifunctional rural community,
- rural community,
- town and small city,
- community for tourists.

This year’s Winners

The Mayor of Góra Kalwinia community was awarded with the title of “Local Manager of the Year 2016” for extraordinary commitment to the development of the community, and for sacrificing his time, energy and heart.

For the 15th edition of the contest, we have prepared a special award - full rating from INC Rating, won by Brwinów community.

Validation rules

Communities participating in the contest are verified in two stages. During the first stage of the contest, questionnaires in which communities carry out self-assessments of their activities and present their accomplishments and future plans are assessed. In the second stage, properly prepared auditors control communities in order to verify the data contained in the questionnaires. In addition, random investors carrying out activities in the community are surveyed. The data obtained during audits and examinations of investors serve as a basis for a benchmarking report that is received by all the participants during the second stage. The sum of ratings granted by the auditors and investors decides about awarding the community with the "Community Fair Play" Certificate.

Advantages for communities

There are many benefits associated with participating in one of the oldest Polish certification programs. In addition to the prestige, the winners can take advantage of promotional opportunities. Each winner has the right to use the logo of "Community Fair Play" in promotional and business activities, for example: on websites, leaflets, special road signs. This recognizable logo attracts the attention of investors and supports building a positive image of the community. The certificate is a confirmation of a high level of competencies, tested and evaluated by entrepreneurs, investors, and auditors. In conjunction with the assessment contained in the benchmarking report, it constitutes a strong argument in business negotiations. Communities also get an independent assessment of investors through surveys conducted by the contest office at the second stage of the program in all participating communities. The contest also provides promotion and the possibility to present achievements and plans. Several times a year, we inform the nationwide, regional, local and industry media (press, radio, TV, websites) about the contest, its participants and winners.
