At the very thought of relocating…Yes, what comes to your mind?
Until recently the phrase “recruitment Krakow” was like a red rag to a bull for Varsovians and a citizen from the Western European country did not even think about moving to a place where one could meet a polar bear in the street! The fact that the market is changing is visible to the naked eye and it doesn’t need to be proved. But, how do young people react to this change? Are they ready to leave their homecountry for the opportunity of a brilliant career? Are they travelling across Poland as eagerly as around the world? What directions do they most often choose?
*Recent studies show that the labour mobility of Poles has increased. Nowadays, Polish workers generally move to Germany as opposed to the year 2011, when they preferred to relocate to Great Britain.
Young people are open both to abroad and home relocation. In 2012, according to Deloitte report, there were 74,6 people (among the respondents) willing to relocate, which was a 5 % increase in comparison to the previous year. It is not surprising if one takes into account the market dynamics and the corporation development, which require somewhat of labour mobility, especially when it comes to professional posts.
Undoubtedly, this trend is going to keep up in the following years not only because of economic reasons but mostly because of society transformation. Family ties are no longer so close, the world is becoming a global village, the constant development of communication infrastructure facilitates fast and cheap travelling across continents. Thus, the opportunity to work abroad or in a different city means gaining valuable experience and the phrase “recruitment Krakow” no longer sounds so horrible, even for a Varsovian.
