www.randstadsourceright.com With growth robust in Poland, companies anticipate stronger hiring in 2017 and are looking externally to find talent As the largest economy in central Europe, Poland has demonstrated economic strength in the region, so it's no surprise that nearly all (97%) Polish respondents of the 2016 Q4 Talent Intelligence Outlook survey reported business growth in the past 12 months at or above expectations. However, companies there are also cautious about the road ahead, with only 53% expecting business growth in the next 12 months. As a result, hiring was tempered despite a strong previous year. Only 25% hired extensively to keep up with current growth and the competition, while 36% hired in anticipation of future demand. Looking ahead to 2017, Polish human capital leaders were more aggressive about talent acquisition, with 33% believing they will hire to address current demand and 42% predicting hiring for future growth. While talent leaders in other countries have placed talent scarcity at or near the top of their list of key influencers on business in the next 12 months, Polish counterparts are focused on ways to resolve concerns about scarcity. Nearly half said robotics will play a major role in business development in the year ahead. Almost one-third also providing contracts for expatriates is critical, indicating that Polish companies will look to draw more talent from around the EU and elsewhere to fulfill their needs. The skills that companies here most often hired for in the past 12 months were marketing, strategy (both cited by 38% of respondents) and IT (35%). Over the next 12 months, talent acquisition and IT will be in demand (38%) along with strategy and finance and accounting (28%). Three takeaways • Poland's robust economy indicates a continued strong pace of investment in central Europe, but that adds pressure to talent scarcity in this market. • The outflow of top talent may soon start to reverse as more Polish nationals choose to pursue opportunities domestically. Polish government officials in past years have sought to stop the brain drain to markets such as the U.K. • With demand for skills in marketing and strategy rising, Polish companies are setting themselves up to better compete in the global market. For a variety of reasons, including access to talent and the growth of the flexible workforce, Polish companies are shifting some permanent positions to contingent JOB FAMILIES MOST AFFECTED A SHIFT FROM PERMANENT POSITIONS TO TEMPORARY OR FREELANCE POSITIONS THE BIGGEST DRIVERS AFFECTING HR 58% 56% 56% Evolving expectations and the impact of technology are the biggest drivers in the workplace Talent expectations are continually increasing Technology has simplified recruiting Technology helps make smarter hiring decisions 45% 45% 36% 36% Sales Company strategy General management HR TALENT MANAGEMENT ROBOTICS Ro TALENT FLEXIBILITY Tf ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE WORKFORCE STRATEGIES Ws TALENT INNOVATION Ti RESOURCING STRATEGIES Rs RECRUITMENT R CONTINGENT WORKFORCE Cw WORKFORCE MANAGEMENT Wm WORKFORCE MANAGEMENT Wm MANAGED SERVICES PROGRAM MsP CONTINGENT TALENT Ct CANDIDATE EXPERIENCE Ce AUTOMATION Au GIG WORKERS Gw TECHNOLOGY TOOLKIT Tt TECHNOLOGY TOOLKIT Tt CAREER TRANSITION SERVICES CtS STATEMENT OF WORK SoW SUPPLIER MANAGEMENT Sm VENDOR MANAGEMENT SYSTEM VmS HUMAN INTELLIGENCE Hi PREDICTIVE ANALYTICS Pa EMPLOYER VALUE PROPOSITION EvP TALENT CONSULTANCY Tc talent intelligence outlook: Poland facts
