The Polish Business Roundtable was established in 1992. The impulse for the establishment of the organization was a conviction that Polish business in the new conditions of free market and democratic Poland needs a strong and reliable representation.
During the 1st General Meeting of the Polish Business Roundtable, the Association published its first declarations: “Memorandum of the Polish Business Roundtable: the Conditions of New Economic Order” and “Memorandum on the Rural Areas and Food Economy.”
The Polish Business Roundtable, the Confederation of Polish Employers, and the Business Centre Club signed the “Agreement for the Economy.”
Recognizing the necessity of a proper public representation of private employers, members of the Polish Business Roundtable established a new organization – the Polish Confederation of Private Employers. In the same year, the Office and Club of the Polish Business Roundtable were moved to their current location in the Sobański Palace (Aleje Ujazdowskie, Warsaw, Poland).
The Polish Business Roundtable launched the Career Program – paid internships in companies related to the Association's members for talented students and alumni of universities in Poland and abroad. Already at that time, the program covered most sectors of the Polish economy.
The Polish Business Roundtable merged with the the Council of Managers and Entrepreneurs.
For the first time, the Polish Business Roundtable Awards were presented in three categories: An Award for Success – for most exceptional achievements in business; An Award for Innovation – for innovative and visionary ventures that set new standards and trends; and An Award for Social Engagement – for social projects that improve lives of those in need.
A year later, the fourth category was added: A Special Award – for an exceptional contribution to Poland’s economic and social development.
