The Polish temporary labour market may grow to as much as twice its current size. However, it will be beneficial for employees.
If these forecasts prove accurate, the number of temporary employees may grow to ca. 1.5 mln people. The value of the temporary labour market may increase at a similar rate – its growth rate in the last few years was in double figures, with a value of ca. 4.5 bln PLN in 2014.
The imposition of social security contributions may be beneficial for the biggest players who have lower individual costs. However, Jacek Brzozowski, Adviser to the President of Employers of Poland assesses that the agencies hopes for a significant market growth may be mitigated by companies’ tendency to optimize costs – growing labour costs in lower-paid jobs may encourage companies to restrict employment and wage growth rate.
