Employment agency Work Service estimates that this year the demand for temporary workers will increase significantly. The company is also expecting the number of recruited employees as part of cross-border activities to double, according to the company President Maciej Witucki.
“We expect a doubling of cross-border activities in all directions, i.e. Ukrainians coming to Poland, and Poles to the Czech Republic or Germany. The numbers will be twice as high compared to last year,” Witucki said.
He added that last year the company sent 4,000 Ukrainians to Poland, and now has orders for another 2,000 people. Demand for Polish workers in other CEE regions is also high; last year, more than 2,000 employees went from Poland to Germany. The company also plans to launch new cross-border lines from Bulgaria, Croatia and Macedonia this year.
Work Service is the largest company in the personnel services sector in Poland and a leader in the CEE region. The main financial investor in Work Service is the PineBridge Investments private equity fund. The company is listed on the Warsaw and London stock exchanges.
