2015 has been a breakthrough year for the Polish labour market. Good economic situation and stable growth have resulted in the highest employment level in recent years. At one point a record 120 000 jobs were available at Labour Offices.
Tomasz Misiak, President of the Board at Work Service SA, Vicepresident of Employers of Poland:
Successive strengthening of the position of employees in Poland results in growing employee deficits. They are not evenly distributed over all regions and sectors. Deficits are most pronounced in Western and Central Poland in sectors such as production, logistics, IT and BPO. In the coming months, these shortages will be the main challenge facing entrepreneurs. In many cases, the only solution is to employ foreigners. Even today we can observe a phenomenon known as complimentary immigration – a situation where foreigners are not a threat to Poles’ jobs, as they immigrate when there are no adequately qualified candidates on the local market or locals ae not willing to take the jobs in question for one reason or another.
