The Polish temporary staffing market has not been left unscarred by the slowing economy, but forecasts for 2013 remain positive. Polish HR Forum, Poland’s federation of staffing firms, said that sales in the temporary staffing industry will increase this year, but at a slower pace than in 2012.
“Although the first half of the year will not be easy, we expect that the recovery will take place in the third quarter of 2013 and full-year turnover will increase by about +10%,” the federation said on Monday.
The association also said that as long as Poland did not slip into recession, the use of agency workers by client companies should remain stable. Poland's economy is forecast to grow by +1.5% in 2013, according to new data by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
Polish HR Forum also reports that data collected from member firms show other positive trends as the number of new customers working with recruiters has increased.
Polish HR Forum, founded in 2002, is a member of the International Confederation of Private Employment Agencies (CIETT). Members include staffing firms such as Adecco, Randstad, Work Express and Gi Group.
