Randstad: Polish workers confident about job situation


Polish workers are fairly confident about their jobs, with just 8% feeling they are at a high risk of job loss during the next six months, according to the Randstad Work Monitor, an international quarterly survey by the global employment firm. The average for the 26 countries covered by the survey (which for the first time included Poland) was 7%. One in five Poles perceive a “medium” risk of job loss, roughly in line with the average.

Poles display above-average optimism about job-seeking, with 72% confident they would be able to find a comparable job within six months if necessary, and 81% believing they would be able to find some job during that period (the averages for all countries were 69% and 75%, respectively).

The study also shows that the Polish labour market is characterised by considerable dynamism and turnover rate. One in three of the respondents said they had been working for their present employer for less than two years, and the country’s score on Randstad’s Mobility Index, which reflects perceived expectation of job change during the next six months, at 105 points, was three points higher than the average.

The survey is based on interviews with a sample of minimally 400 respondents in each participating country. The respondents are aged 18-64 and working a minimum of 24 hours per week in a paid job (excluding the self-employed). The first Polish survey was conducted between 5 and 22 August 2010, on a sample of 405 respondents.
