Poland — 90% of companies have no intention to sack temporary employees

09 October 2009

A new survey carried out by market research firm TNS OBOP on behalf of staffing firm Randstad Poland shows that 84% of companies have no plans to reduce their stock of full-time employees and 90% do not intend to reduce their stock of temporary employees.

On October 6th Randstad presented the results of their latest research during a conference co-organised by the Polish Information and Foreign Investment Agency.

The survey’s authors claim that symptoms of an economic upturn can already be clearly felt in Poland. The percentage of companies which do not consider axing employees has been increasing - a sign that the labour market has been heading for stability.

Kajetan Słonina, Randstad’s Director General in Poland, said "The percentage of companies which were not able to assess their temporary workers policies fell considerably from 22% to 5%. In comparison with May 2009 the percentage of companies which do not think about changes in their temporary employment structure has risen substantially (from 62% to 80%). The number of companies which declare to maintain the current level of employment rose among companies which hire between 50 and 249 people"

Moreover, 89% of the surveyed companies do not plan to cut salaries. The majority (76%) want to maintain the current level and 13% estimate that salaries should rise.

Randstad and TNS OBOP also investigated the mood of entrepreneurs regarding the current economic situation in Poland. While 47% of the respondents are of the opinion that the crisis will end within the year, 23% think Poland has not been hit by the downturn at all.

The survey was conducted in September this year and covered 300 companies hiring more than 10 persons each. Former editions of the survey were run in November 2008, February 2009 and May 2009.
