After a long period of prosperity and excellent condition of Polish companies, an unexpected collapse due to coronavirus came. However, the first signs of an economic slowdown began to appear at the end of 2019. At present, many industries could function, but the components and materials that were imported from China and other Asian countries affected by the virus epidemic are lacking. Here are the most important changes in the economy caused by the pandemic.
Lack of materials necessary to continue production resulted in the inhibition or temporary suspension of production from the following industries:
Changes in the labor market are affected not only by the lack of products and components, but also by the shortage of employees, especially from Ukraine. Companies withhold recruitment and cut costs. Therefore, we are facing a slowdown in some industries and a shortage of staff in others, e.g. in the food industry. Crew reduction can occur quickly, but once the coronavirus weakens, companies will search. They will then need temporary work agencies and recruitment companies that will support HR departments such as JD Mercury.
Dismissal management is a professional service that helps reduce crew. Outplacement can prevent legal claims from employees. It also gives them a sense of security and positively affects the company's image. On the other hand, companies still need properly prepared staff. To survive in difficult times associated with coronavirus they focus on temporary work and employee outsourcing.
