Record-breaking level of rotation on the labor market

Even up to 29 per cent of the Poles have changed their work place or post since the beginning of the year. Thus, we are facing a record-breaking level of rotation on the labor market.

According to the research conducted by Randstad personal consulting company, we are facing the highest level of rotation on the labor market for five years. The openness of Poles on change of work place has significantly increased. Interestingly, there is a conviction that the demographic crisis can have a positive impact on employability.


The survey conducted by "Monitor Rynku Pracy" presents that the rotation maintained at the level of around 25 per cent in the previous four quarters. Data from the second quarter of 2016 shows the upward trend and it situates Poland on the first place among all researched European countries. The most frequent reason for changing work place is searching for better conditions (44 per cent). Another reason indicated by 26 per cent of the respondents is personal yearning for changes. However, the feeling of lack of stability regarding posts can also be observed, and it was declared – at least at the moderate level – by around 37 per cent of the participants of the survey. The great number of the respondents (72 per cent) declare that it is easy to find a similar post within six months, or any other job (77 per cent).


As the newest research shows, the mobility index is also high and it increased by 4 points. Poland comes first in Europe with its mobility index at a level of 111 points. Thus, the Poles present the biggest eagerness to change their present employer. However, as Director of Legal and Public Affairs at Randstad Agnieszka Bulik observes: The openness does not mean that the majority of the Poles send their CV and take part in the recruitment processes. We are far more passive. Only 12 per cent of the surveyed are actively searching for a new work place right now and most of people are tentatively searching for an interesting offer, rather waiting for a call from a friend than browsing job offers (20 per cent of the respondents).
