A third of Polish companies cannot find employees

As many of 32 percent of SMEs in Poland are having trouble finding staff, the worst result in six years, a new study finds.

These companies cannot find enough qualified people to fill vacancies, the latest report by consulting firm Grant Thornton International said.

The “International Business Report” study shows that, meanwhile, the situation has improved significantly for Polish workers.

The authors of the report said that the 32-percent figure is the highest in six years – since the global financial crisis started.

They added that in recent years the percentage of Polish employers complaining of problems with finding the right staff ranged between 15-20 percent. And in the fourth quarter of 2012, the figure had dropped to eight percent.

The survey was conducted among 10,000 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) from 36 countries, including 200 from Poland. (rg/rk)
