In many sectors, the cause for increased overtime is a shortage of employees – Witold Polkowski in „Rzeczpospolita”

18-08-2016

For most Poles, an eight-hour working day remains a theory. In practice, three in four employees work a couple hours – or more – longer than the forty-hour working week – shows research conducted by the recruitment company Hays Poland quoted by “Rzeczpospolita”.

 

Witold Polkowski, expert of Employers of Poland, points out that in the current situation, overtime in many sectors is the consequence of a shortage of employees (eg. in trade and services). However, in some companies, including banks and financial institutions, overtime is a natural element of work organization.
