The survey carried out by the Gremi Personal analytical center found that 80 percent of Polish firms now had Ukrainians on their books, while in one-third of the firms, Ukrainians now account for 10-20 percent of staff.
Ukrainians in Poland. Who is who?
It would be in the interest of the Ukrainian national minority to “place” its representatives in all major Polish political parties.
Ukrainians occupy both highly-qualified and low-qualified jobs in 43 percent of companies the survey found, while 18 percent of firms said they only employ highly-qualified Ukrainian personnel.
The same percentage declared they hire Ukrainians only for low-qualified jobs.
In 5 percent of the surveyed companies, Ukrainians constitute over 50 percent of the staff.
The survey also found that the majority of respondents (66 percent) said that workers from Ukraine quickly adapted to new working conditions and had no difficulty acclimating.
The influence of Ukrainians on the Polish economy is growing month by month due to their steady emigration to Poland and, according to employers, their high motivation to work.
As of February 24, 2022, more than 11.889 million of them have passed through Poland, of which 10.095 million have returned to the country.
UN estimates indicate that there are 2 million Ukrainian refugees in Poland.
