Knowledge is an essential imperative of the company growth and development. This imperative determines the economy of aims realized by the company. The majority of small and medium enterprises (SME) are not aware of that as they do not economize on knowledge efficiently. The authors of the report found out about that while conducting research work within the framework of the Community Initiative Programme EQUAL in Poland in 2004‑2006. The research was carried out in the SMEs involved in the Programme "Supporting restructured companies and their employees", the aim of which was choosing and preparing a company for restructuring. The authors recommend their own model of supporting restructured enterprises and their employees.
