2022 is here – by now we have all gotten more comfortable in navigating through the pandemic. The companies no longer merely scramble for survival, but are actually ready to spread their wings, for example by expanding their teams. As a recent study by Hays Poland reveals, this situation will result in several recruitment challenges in the new year.
95% of employers expect to recruit in 2022.
The organizations will hire experts to help them take their business to the next level - mainly in terms of technology. The employees will look for workers who specialise in IT (40% of companies), sales (30%), finance and accounting (26%), customer service (25%) and production (25%).
The reason for planned recruitment most often indicated by employers is business development and the need to recruit new employees, often with unique competences. In the second place (33% of responses), the companies pointed to a need to find a replacement for employees who decide to leave, and in the third place (9%) - structural changes.
The employers are aware that the implementation of their employment plans can be extremely difficult. Recruitment challenges are expected by 74% of respondents (34 pp. more than at the end of 2020).
In 2022, three out of four employers expect an increase in wages, while a reduction in wages - only 3%.
